Snoke. No other character has shaken Star Wars fans quite like this one (recently at least), due to his treatment and lack of backstory in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Well, if you have more questions about Supreme Leader Snoke, actor Andy Serkis had an in depth talk with EW about creating the character and a wee bit of his backstory. If you want to read about Serkis’ process, head over to EW, but I’ve grabbed the most insightful comments about the character of Snoke and whether we will see him again, just for you!
First, Andy Serkis finally explained where Snoke got his messed up face, in fairly vauge terms, but it does add a little to Star Wars lore:
“It is to do with previous battles. It’s a sort of decay as well. He’s quite an old character, and those battle scars are affecting his recovery and his body’s started to break down as well.”
Decay? Serkis also explained about how old Snoke is:
“I would say that he’s a couple of hundred years old.”
Only a couple hundred years? So, younger than Yoda.
EW also asked if Serkis could shed any light of Snoke’s history:
“We wanted him to have a great deal of mystery, but we did … J.J. [Abrams] and I discussed it, and Rian [Johnson] and I did discuss backstories to him, where he came from. I’ve been asked to not shed anything, should we want to bring him back in any way whether [in a] prequel or whatever. I think there’s something cool about that. It still does remain a mystery for people. I know that some people find it incredibly frustrating, but I think it allows for further exploration and layering at a further point.”
Serkis also answered whether or not we may see Snoke again:
“Yeah, I would love to think that there is room for him to come back. I think anything’s possible in a Star Wars movie. I’d be all up for it. I think there’s a lot more to be had from the character for sure, but I’m not in discussions with anybody at all about it.”
The only question with these answers is, how much was official, discussed with J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson, and how much Serkis brings to the character’s history himself?
Would you want to see Snoke return somewhere in the Star Wars universe, if for no other reason than to learn more about him? Or does it even matter? Let us know in the comment section below!
