All of our Snoke theories may have turned out to be wrong, but if Andy Serkis had his way, he’d want to move that pot again. In a new interview with Jake’s Takes YouTube channel Jake Hamilton, Serkis discusses his return to star Wars universe in AndorBut he revealed that it will be a game for a series that explores Supreme Leader Snoke and his background.
When asked what part of his work on Star Wars he’d like feedback on from George Lucas, Serkis said he’d tell him “Look, I don’t think we’ve seen enough of Snoke.” Although Lucas didn’t technically create Snoke (that was out of my mind The force wakes up Writers Lawrence Kasdan and J.J. Abrams), Serkis wants his input on the possibility of extending the character’s life. He also wouldn’t mind seeing Snoke’s story expand into a spin-off.
He said, “I think people would love to see more of Snoke, and in fact, really fill in the whole knowledge behind Snoke because I think there’s a lot of fertile ground not yet covered.”
When we last saw Supreme Leader Snook, he was half the man he used to be, unceremoniously cut in two by Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) in a fateful battle near the end of Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, when a Sith disciple turns his mentor on to take control of the First Order himself. Technically, the character appeared in Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of SkywalkerThis turned out to be some neglected clone of Snoke on Exegol, a subplot that was later fleshed out in comics and books.
As it turns out, Snoke was an experiment by the henchmen of the Palpatine Sith, a cloned corpse that was supposed to contain his life force. The experiment fails, and the surviving Snoke clone is used as a Seth lord/mentor for Kylo Ren and a first-class puppet leader. Fans had been hoping he’d have a more interesting back story (hello, Darth Plaggs), and his premature death at the hands of Rian Johnson became a point of controversy among fans upset that Lucasfilm didn’t do much pre-planning in another trilogy story between the various writers and directors.
Andy Serkis achieved pop culture immortality playing Gollum in the Academy Award-winning the Lord of the Rings A trilogy by Peter Jackson with a groundbreaking motion capture performance that blurs the line between CGI and reality. That opened the door to more motion capture work, including a new Peter Jackson remake king kong characterThe big monkey plays himself. Follow it up with a great performance like Caesar in planet of the apes The reboot trilogy, which many fans argued was Oscar-worthy.
He finally got rid of his uncomfortable motion capture suit with a live performance in the Marvel movie Black Pantheras Ulysses Klaue, a role he later reprized in the Marvel animated series What if…? His other notable roles include 13 Go on 30 And the Batmanin which he took on the iconic role of Alfred Pennyworth opposite Robert Pattinson’s Batman/Bruce Wayne.
