Few movie villains are as impressive and iconic as Darth Vader. The figure’s suit, the voice of James Earl Jones and the strength of his strength proved to be inseparable in the production Star Wars a phenomenon that is. However, Vader is only the first of a long saga saga. Still not Star Wars the film still featured the villain of a woman. According to the new report, it almost happened.
“Star Wars” has an impressive pantheon of villains
Fans may consider Vader to be essential Star Wars villain. But it is far from the only one that has caused chaos on the “galaxy far, far away.” Finally, even Vader must answer to his master, Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid). The last Sith Lord even managed – somehow – to cheat death, as seen in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
However, the audience met several villains in the films. These include secondary baddies such as Jango Fett (Temuera Morrison), Jabba the Hutt and General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson). yet, Star Wars he also introduced other villains in control of the force, such as Darth Maul (Ray Park), Count Dooku (Christopher Lee) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).
So which ones Star Wars was the villain originally female?

The main villain from the continuing trilogy was at first a woman
The first big woman Star Wars the film villain has almost become a continuing trilogy. According to an interview with the Force Material podcast, designer and sculptor Ivan Manzella did not reveal anyone other than the supreme leader Snoke (Andy Serkis), who was a woman in early design.
I think at first, when they talked about her, [Snoke] was a woman. Because the first picture I made was from a woman, but then it disappeared very quickly. So either it was just around or something. But I think I only made one picture. And that was all and no one else did. I don’t know if anyone really did it. Since then, it has become male.
Manzella apparently didn’t get much description to work with. This is no surprise considering the huge secrets of Snoke’s past in the final film. However, it is interesting to learn that the design team at least explored the possibility of a baddie, especially given the power of Snoke.

Would Snoke be an improvement?
Given the controversy among fans around Rey (Daisy Ridley), it would be a reaction to Snoke’s wife. No matter how Snoke’s story ends, it might have been a strong thematic choice to stand up to a female hero against a female villain. In fact, it could even improve the dynamics and get closer between Rey and Snoke.
The most likely reason why director JJ Abrams chose Snoke was to break into nostalgia. Top to bottom, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is designed to reflect previous movies. And elements of Snoke’s design call for Palpatine himself. Maybe with another batch of movies, fans will finally get to the woman Star Wars villain. Asajj Ventress anyone?
