Supreme Leader Snoke is killed in The Last Jedi

do sparks fly out of

him or the chair behind him?

Not going to ask a speculative question as to whether or not someone might in fact be a robot. But someone if someone who has seen the movie already could sees it again soon could they keep an eye out for that?

  • is there a reason to think this happens or is it entirely speculation? – NKCampbell Dec 18 '17 at 14:59
  • @nkcampbell I'm sure there were sparks, it's just a matter of whether they came out of him or the chair – Peter Turner Dec 18 '17 at 15:00
  • i think it was the chair. time to rewatch it on thursday. – CptEric Dec 18 '17 at 15:54

    Could it be ash instead of sparks? Lightsabers are extremely hot and will burn anything they go through. – Skooba Dec 19 '17 at 13:21

The sparks did fly out of the character. I found this rather poor-quality clip, which shows enough, however, to prove your observation.

    Looks like they're embers from the lightsaber burning through his smoking jacket. Good find – Machavity Dec 19 '17 at 13:19

    Guys, there are no robots in Star Wars, only droids. ;-) – Essen Dec 19 '17 at 17:39

    You have to think, if he was a droid, General Hux might have commented on it. Unless it was common knowledge of course, in which case it doesn't seem like being chopped in half would necessarily be a death sentence, and you'd expect Hux to suggest reassembling him. I think the lightsaber burning his clothing seems more likely. – delinear Dec 22 '17 at 15:57

    Yeah, I agree with @Machavity - that looks like glowing ash or embers rather than sparks. – Omegacron Dec 24 '17 at 17:52
