supreme leader snoke

Our first and only proper tease of Andy SerkisStar Wars: The Force Awakens character, Supreme Leader Snoke, arrived almost a year ago. It was his gravelly croak of a voice that spoke over the first trailer, the same batch of footage that gave us our first glimpse of Adam Driver‘s Kylo Ren, John Boyega‘s Finn, Oscar Isaac‘s Poe Dameron, and the instantly beloved BB-8. Since that teaser, we’ve learned our fair share about most of those characters, but Snoke remains an enigma. All we know is what we’ve scraped off the bottom of the internet rumor pile and even that remains questionable.

Well, that was true until right now. Serkis has finally opened up about his mysterious villain, who is supposedly intended to be a key figure who looms over the next few films in the series. In a new interview, the veteran character actor and motion-capture pioneer offered our first official information about Snoke, including why he had to be a digital character.

All of the Supreme Leader Snoke news you want (as well as a new The Force Awakens IMAX poster!) after the jump.
