Star Wars’ Andy Serkis Talks Being ‘Gutted’ Over Snoke’s Death In The Last Jedi, And If He Would Reprise The Character

Although it was revealed that Emperor Palpatine was still alive in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalkerwhen the Sequel Trilogy started in 2015 with the force awakens, it was Andy Serkis’ Supreme Leader Snoke who pulled the strings of the First Order. While it initially looked like Snoke would be the big villain of this era of THE star wars moviesthe imposing antagonist was rather killed by his apprentice, Kylo Ren, in The Last Jedi. A little over five years after that movie was released, Serkis has opened up about how “emptied” he was of Snoke’s fate and whether he’s ready to reprise the character one day.

Speaking of his latest film, Luther: The Fallen Sunwith QGAndy Serkis spoke about his time as Supreme Leader Snoke, recalling how JJ Abrams’ manager change on the force awakens to Rian Johnson on The Last Jedi resulted in Snoke being cut in half unceremoniously. As Serkis explained:
