When Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker revealed that Supreme Leader Snoke was a clone of Emperor Palpatine. I was not a fan of the idea. It seemed like a soap opera level twist. Thankfully the first two films in Disney’s sequel trilogy had prepared me for something like this.
As most of you know, mocap master Andy Serkis gave Snoke his voice, his facial expressions, and personality. The actor revealed during a recent interview with ComicBookMovie.com that even though he was Snoke, he wasn’t fully aware of the character’s origins. You can check out what he had to say below.
“It was very much under wraps. Very much under wraps. I had an inkling, but it was not confirmed.”

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalkerwas extremely underwhelming for a film meant to wrap up one of the most beloved franchises in the history of film. In fact, I can say that for the entire Disney trilogy. Having said that, Serkis was again fantastic with giving life to a CGI character, and even though he has done enough non-CGI roles to separate himself, he will likely be the go-to-guy for the CGI gig for the foreseeable future.
Did Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker subvert your expectations as far as Snoke’s origin, if so, was it a positive or negative experience? Let us know in the comments down below!
