There has been an awakening for Supreme Leader Snoke!

Andy Serkis’ character has been named and confirmed to be CG via performance capture, thanks to a new article on StarWars.com.

Yes, Serkis is playing Supreme Leader Snoke!

OK, divorced of context it sounds a bit hard to take seriously. The name “Snoke” doesn’t immediately strike fear into the average person.

But there’s a simplicity to it that’s been lacking in Star Wars ever since the prequels, with names like Darth Plagueis, Savage Opress and Lord Tyranus. And Serkis’ character will (hopefully) make “Snoke” sound as menacing as the name “Vader”, once we see him on scren.

At the very least, Serkis looks to be in top form.

  1. No one will know for sure if Snoke is Plagueis until we see what the CG character looks like. If he’s a Muun…it’s Plagueis. If it’s not, than he’s likely an original character.

  2. I also think it is a mistake with the juvenile re-simplification of names. Just IMHO i liked the longer more complicated names. They made characters seem more sophisticated.
