    We know now that Snoke led the Attendants. In the latest Thrawn book he was worried about a race in the Unknown Regions. I wonder now if it was the Attendants. The remnants of the Empire fell into the Attendants hands and became the First Order. We know very little about the Attendants. Would they be apt to follow Kylo Ren after the fall of Snoke?

    Is it possible that Episode IX is going to be a situation where the First Order/Rebellion will be forced to unite against a common enemy? Will the Attendants strike back?

    Very interesting theory. It certainly is a possibility it may be the Attendants. However, to me, they do not seem to be a violent race given what is on that page and they were led by Snoke. Another possibility could be the threat is race Snoke belonged to who are found in the unknown regions. Given Snoke is dead, they may emerge. It's funny how both cannon and non-cannon books refer to a threat in the unknown regions. It turned out to be the Yuuzhan Vong in the non-cannon. Maybe now it Snoke's people. Given the Yuuzhan Vong were void of the force, it could be interesting if Snoke's species were the opposite, everyone has force abilities on different levels. It would give new purpose for the awakening of the force in Rey, Broom Boy, and who knows how many others. The force has to counter this new threat.

    The concept art for the Attendants actually came from The Force Awakens film development.

    i've wondered about Snoke's original crew too, whether or not they'll be pissed at the death of their cherished Snokey boy.

    the Attendants are mysterious and interesting; they seem to possess both weird tech and Force abilities, and may have married the two together in a way that we haven't seen in SW before.

    in the TLJ art book, whatever it's called, they mention Snoke harboring a deep hatred for the Republic. i wonder if maybe his people were once slighted by the Republic and the Jedi and were forced to go out into the Unknown Regions. or maybe they sent a delegation to the Republic at some point only to be shooed away. i'm not sure what other injury would have occurred between Snoke and the Republic for this hatred to have developed, other than maybe Snoke learned to hate the Republic via the Imperial remnant he encountered.

    Hmm that's possible and quite an interesting idea but it might feel shoehorned in since we lewarn nothing about them IN VII and VIII. It also begs the question why they cut the attendants from TLJ if they wanted to use them in IX.

    Is it just me or does this sound similar to the story of the Yuuzhan Vong? But the question remains: would they really introduce a new threat in the final stage of the saga? Shouldn't they rather focus ond the fight between the FO (the probably take over of Hux) and the Resistance?

    I agree. I don't think they will introduce a new threat in the final episode. Not straight out anyway unless it is to set up another trilogy.

    Pretty simple really. It's 4-5 years after The Last Jedi and the First Order realizes that they're about to attacked by a massive force from the Unknown Regions. I'm just thinking about how this trilogy will end with the galaxy united? How can the rebellion unite the galaxy? How can anyone at this point? They need a common enemy.

    No. Just no. You don't make alliances with Nazis, especially in fairy tales. There is no balance in the Force when there's equally as much Light and Darkness. Darkness is evil. The First Order is evil. Unless the leadership of the FO changes, a Resistance-FO alliance would be tone-deaf.

    The Nazi analogy doesn't really work here because this is really a civil war. The New Republic was run by many people who were Empire sympathizers.

    The First Order is relatively leadership free except for the military. Snoke was the leadership. Now it's Kylo Ren. It's a safe assumption that Ben Solo is redeemed in some way.

    the attendants should be the evil nick furys of the star wars films....always looming in the background talking to villians in various periods of star wars....serving something greater than a sith

    and it is revealed that these attendants are servants of a fallen whill....who created the sith but was imprisoned in the unknown regions in the old republic era

    Introducing a common enemy for the Resistance and First Order to fight is an interesting concept, but it's far too late to introduce it in the last film of a trilogy.

    They had their chance with VIII, but TLJ blew them out in space.

    The question is why would teh attendants be the enemy of the first order when they have previously helped them navigate the unknown regions. I was also under the impression that Snoke was their leader so why attack them?

    Well at this point they no longer need to rely on a trilogy format. Similar to splitting up the hobbit trilogy or the hunger games finale or the harry potter finale they could decide to go with a two part finale halfway through production. I'm not saying they willl but technically they could introduce us to new enemies and just add another episode to the sequel series.

    Snoke was murdered by a member of the First Order and he was an Attendant. The First Order was just a tool for Snoke, but maybe he's the only Attendant interested is dominating the galaxy.

    I don't think Snoke himself is an attendant, he's just the ruler of them. Hold on, I gotta do a quick photoshop. I'll be right back :) Btw thanks for bringing up this theory. You made me want to speculate again :)

    /edit: now that I did the photshop I think he could actually be an attendant.

    I tried to compare the attendant to Snoke and I do believe that he could very well be an attendant himself. While the shoulder, neck and torso ratio doesn't quite add up (as indicated by the white lines) this could be due to the fact that he is male and has a twisted spine/neck while the other attendant might be a healthy female. What is more striking however is the execution of the attendants mask which would perfectly match Snoke's facial structure. The head shape doesn't bother me too much, they could be wearing helmets beaneath their cloaks elongating their craniums. So I do think that it's possible that Snoke is an attendant himself and if so, the attendants would have a reason to be mad at Kylo who killed one of their own/their leader/their influence on the FO and subsequently the Galaxy far far away.

    Using another image of Snoke and changing the scaling a bit the shoulder/neckratio seems to add up quite nicely as well.
