SPOILERS: STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Star Andy Serkis Talks About Snoke's Big Scene
The legendary performance capture actor discusses his controversial Star Wars character, and what we can expect from Supreme Leader Snoke in future Star Wars films. The Last Jedi SPOILERS after the jump...
Audiences were shocked when Supreme Leader Snoke was killed in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. As it turns out, the man who plays Snoke was pretty surprised by the twist as well. In an interview with Ben Pearson of /Film during the Black Panther promotional tour, Serkis was asked about his reaction to his character's death, and said the following:
"I was shocked. Dramatically, it felt absolutely right for that moment in the film, so I didn’t question it. I just think it’s a very, very important scene, so I didn’t question it."
With all the secrecy and fan theories surrounding Supreme Leader Snoke, many fans were disappointed to see the character not make it through the second chapter in the trilogy. This has some theorists believing that the Supreme Leader will return in Episode IX.
Serkis says he has not met with J.J. Abrams yet to talk about a potential return for his character, but his answer seems to indicate that a return is not completely out of the question. Serkis went on to say:
"But I do, I know it’s left fans feeling like, that they were really searching for something there. And what I’m saying is, who knows?"
Since Star Wars has a history of making life and death a matter of ambiguity, particularly for Force users, anything is possible. Of course, a dark side Force ghost is something we haven't seen in the movies yet, so bringing Snoke back this way would be very different from established canon.
