In an interview with Empire magazine, Andy Serkis has revealed that he believes Supreme Leader Snoke is a darker character than Emperor Palpatine. Empire also revealed a new image of Snoke from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
“Snoke is bloody dark; way darker than Palpatine,” Andy Serkis tells us in the new issue of Empire. “He’s riddled with this osteoporosis so his body’s twisted, like a corkscrew. He’s incredibly damaged, so there’s a bizarre vulnerability about him. Beneath that vulnerability, though, is this intense hatred.”
“He’s definitely not a Sith, but he’s certainly at the darker end of the Force. Without giving too much away, that begins to unfold a little in this one.”
I’ve already been very excited about Snoke’s character, but this makes me even more interested to see how he’s going to unravel in The Last Jedi. The fact that Serkis says Snoke is darker than the Emperor most mean he does something pretty messed up. We’ll find out in 15 days when Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters.
