Andy Serkis Character Named in Episode VII

May 29th, 2015 by Todd Black Comments



When the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer first arrived, there was a narrator guiding it. We would soon learn that it was the one and only Andy Serkis. Yet we were not told who he was (as in the narrator), or what side he might lay claim to. Nor what impact he would have on the film.

Well today, one part of they mystery is resolved, as it’s being reported that Andy Serkis will be filling the role of one Supreme Leader Snoke. Furthermore, the pic above reveals that once again, Serkis will be a playing a CGI motion-captured character. This is truly Andy Serkis bread and butter, as he made his name in doing such roles as Gollum from The Lord of the Rings saga, and Caesar from Planet of the Apes and its sequels.

Outside of his name we don’t know anything about Supreme Leader Snoke. However, it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility to guess that he is part of the dark forces that will doubt rise up in The Force Awakens. After all, since when did a good guy have the name “Supreme Leader”?

We’ll have to wait for further confirmation to be assured of this, but in the meantime, let us know who you think he is!
