“There has been an awakening. Have you felt it? The dark side and the light.”
Now, that answer has been partially revealed as the official Star Wars website revealed that the actor will be portraying Supreme Leader Snoke. However, we still don’t have any clue as to what or who Supreme Leader Snoke is because no further details were offered.
The information was made public in an interview with Annie Lebovitz, who took a photo of the Star Wars character. It was also disclosed that the character was created using performance capture technology. Take a look at it here:
Serkis is known for his versatile portrayals throughout his acting career. He is no stranger to the motion performance technology, and has been credited as Gollum in the “Lord of the Rings” series and Caesar the chimpanzee in the “Planet of the Apes” series. The actor’s most recent appearance was in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” as Klaw/Ulysses Klaue.
Several characters from the original “Star Wars” movie series will be making their return in the 7th movie with Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, and Peter Mayhew reprising their respective roles as Han Solo, Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca. New cast includes John Boyega as Finn, Daisy Ridler as Rey, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, and Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron.
The official synopsis for the movie has yet to be released, but it is known that it will take place 30 years after the 6th “Star Wars” movie, “Star Wars VI: Return of the Jedi“.
