As we all know, the identity of Supreme Leader Snoke has been a topic of great discussion over the last few months, with nobody being any wiser even after the most recent Star Wars instalment. In the film, Snoke simply died in a very unimpressive manner, ending up not only sliced in half but with his tongue dangling on the floor. Still, even now, we have no clue as to his identity. That is, until Andy Serkis…
Andy Serkis, best known as General Elf in Arthur Christmas, recently admitted to having had a very light heart attack when he first learned about the fate of The Supreme Leader in The Last Jedi.
Andy Serkis had this to say;
I was taken to my trailer on the lot at Pinewood Studios, where I was to read the script for the first time on a tablet. We were never handed printed scripts, and had to hand back the tablet as soon as we were done. I was swiping through the story, and landed on this epic scene, where Snoke is goading Kylo Ren to kill Rey, to fulfill his destiny. It was riveting, the tension building with each line. I just couldn’t work out where it was heading. And then as I swiped up … there it was. The end … not for Rey, not for Kylo Ren, but for the Supreme Leader … just gone. I walked out of the trailer in a state of semi-shock, feeling the weight of knowing I would have to mask a great secret for a very, very long time and that my brother, a massive Star Wars fan, was going to be heartbroken.
We now have evidence that Andy Serkis, having gotten inside information about the film before release, might be related to Snoke in some way. Andy Serkis might even be Snoke himself. We just don’t know at this point. We’re currently investigating the case with all available manpower and hope to deliver an exclusive on the true identity of Supreme Leader Snoke – as soon as we manage to capture Andy Serkis and interrogate him.
