Last year’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi had all sorts of surprises in store for fans, whether they liked it or not. In addition to bringing a controversial portrayal of Luke Skywalker, writer-director Rian Johnson also made the bold move of killing of Supreme Leader Snoke.
This was a character that, in The Force Awakens, was being teased as the big Emperor Palpatine-type character, and the one Rey would likely face off against in Episode IX. However, with Snoke now split in two pieces on the floor, is this something we can still expect? Speaking with /Film, actor Andy Serkis gave his impressions on that big moment, and whether or not he’ll be back for Episode IX.
“Look, it’s Star Wars, so you never know how life, or whether life can be come back to or not. Whether you can be resuscitated or brought back. 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. 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?”
My initial reaction is, “of course he can’t come back!” Not only did we see him split in half, but we saw him lying dead on the floor minutes after. If there ever was a character who was as dead as he can be on screen, it’s Snoke. But, of course, that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating, and there are plenty of theories out there about his potential return.
What do you think of Snoke returning in Episode IX? Is this something you’d love or hate? Let us know your thoughts down below!
