Does Andy Serkis Have Two Roles In STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS?

While the mystery of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer voiceover has been solved, the identity of Andy Serkis' ("Avengers: Age of Ultron") role in the film remains unsolved. Today, sources for Jedi News claim Serkis actually has multiple roles.


Sources for the Star Wars fansite, Jedi News, claim that motion-capture superstar Andy Serkis ("Dawn of the Planet of the Apes") has not one, but two roles in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Here's what they know:
One of those roles is, as expected, motion-capture based - and in that role he will be part of a "group of unbelievably athletic and acrobatic motion-capture characters."

The second role for Serkis sees him take on a "pivotal role in the first act story arc that entwines with Daisy Ridley's backstory," and that role "may have more to it than it seems in the first instance."

As for the motion-capture role, the sources for Jedi News says British parkour star Pip Anderson and actress Crystal Clarke are part of Serkis' "athletic and acrobatic" group.
