Star Wars fans had been hoping for a full Last Jedi trailer at the Disney Expo this weekend.
Even so, the sizzle reel that was shown to the packed conference hall and then released online did not disappoint.
Early leaks had revealed that Snoke loves to wear opulent robes and has amassed a huge fortune.
New images of his impressive red-clad Praetorian Guard also suggest a very pronounced flair for the dramatic. These clips and images from the D23 footage certainly seems to show a throne room that fits the bill.
The walls are a vivid, almost glowing and rich red.
The shiny floors appear to be the same colour, although that could be the colours of the walls being reflected.
The clip is preceeded by a shot of Kylo Ren stalking onto an impressive walkway.
From the way the two clips follow on and the matching style of the metal railings in both shots, it looks almost certain that Kylo is entering his master’s throne room for a dramatic scene.
