Star Wars: The Last Jedi was a very polarizing movie. Many fans loved it, while others ranked it alongside the prequels (so not good). Regardless of opinions though, everyone agreed that Supreme Leader Snoke was an intriguing character.
So much so that his fate was the cause of a lot of turmoil and distress between moviegoers. Before the film was even over, Snoke was cut in half by Kylo Ren, killing him instantly.
While the surprise was interesting, it was also an abrupt end for the mysterious Supreme Leader. Little to no backstory whatsoever was revealed in the film, leaving fans with only speculation as to the character’s origins and role.
In a recent interview with EW, Andy Serkis, who played the role of Snoke, shed light on a few interesting details surrounding his character. The most interesting detail was Snoke’s age, as Serkis stated he’s a couple hundred years old.
The information derails a bevy of different fan theories, most of which surround the possibility that Snoke was a Jedi during Order 66. The well known motion caption actor continued to be hush regarding the characters history though, wanting the mystery to remain in tact.
“I’ve been asked to not shed anything, should we want to bring him back in any way whether [in a] prequel or whatever,” Serkis said. “I know that some people find it incredibly frustrating, but I think it allows for further exploration and layering at a further point.”
A prequel series would certainly be an interesting concept, but fans may still have some reservations, considering the last big prequel series to take place in the Star Wars Universe.
Serkis ended the interview stating he’d love to return to Star Wars as Snoke, and that their is plenty of room for him to come back.
