snoke return

Andy Serkis is happy to stoke the speculation of a Snoke return in Star Wars Episode 9.

The ominous figure at the top of the First Order, Snoke and his mysterious backstory was one of the most anticipated parts of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. But Johnson’s radical Star Wars movie left many Snoke fans dissatisfied — and unfortunately, they will likely stay that way. Unless Serkis’ many interviews needling for Snoke’s return can garner the attention of J.J. Abrams.

Minor spoilers for The Last Jedi follow.

luke snoke connection

Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) cut an ominous figure in 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Scarred and disfigured, this character had managed to rise to power and amass a tyrannical army in the span of 30 years. That’s astonishing, even in a story as fantastical and far, far away as Star Wars. In the two years between Episode 7 and Episode 8, Snoke spawned countless theories and Reddit threads about who, exactly, he was.

So when fans sat down for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, they expected to see more of this tantalizing villain and his backstory. Unfortunately, that didn’t quite happen. But the official novelization of Last Jedi may explain a little more about who Snoke is. And it may connect to our first Star Wars hero, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).

Snoke Episode 9

Andy Serkis isn’t fully convinced we’ve seen the last of Supreme Leader Snoke in the Star Wars films.

I spoke with the actor yesterday about his work in Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, in which he reprises his role as the villainous Ulysses Klaue, and I couldn’t resist asking him a quick question about the recent events in a galaxy far, far away – specifically, how he reacted when he first read about Snoke’s ultimate fate in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. But his answer implied that perhaps that memorable scene wasn’t quite as final as it appeared.

snoke apprentices

Update: A very interesting line from another Star Wars book has added another twist to this story. We’ve added the details to the post below.

Another twist has been thrown into the Star Wars canon, but not by Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘s doing. The latest Star Wars film has made a huge impact on the galaxy far, far away that will echo in the movies to come, but ironically, one of the biggest bombshells was just revealed outside of the film itself.

Star Wars Insider Magazine’s special souvenir Star Wars: The Last Jedi issue revealed that Kylo Ren is not the only one of his kind. The official Lucasfilm publication revealed that Supreme Leader Snoke has trained “at least one other apprentice” apart from Kylo. What does the possibility of another Snoke apprentice mean for Star Wars Episode 9? Let’s theorize.

Warning: Major spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi follow.

most powerful star wars villain

Supreme Leader Snoke may not be a Sith Lord, but he is more powerful than two of Star Wars‘ most infamous Sith Lords: the Emperor and Darth Vader. That is, according to Andy Serkis.

The Star Wars: The Last Jedi actor revealed more about his mysterious villain, who has cast a large, holographic shadow since his brief appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And Serkis has made the bold claim that Snoke is more powerful than both the Emperor and Darth Vader, who terrorized the heroes throughout Episodes 1-6. Can Snoke be the biggest threat to the galaxy yet?

Star Wars The Last Jedi Snoke Rumors

Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) is going to do a lot more than dish out insults from a big chair in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) will come face-to-face with his grumpy mentor in Rian Johnson‘s film. While there was speculation Snoke was going to be brought to life as a puppet this time around, that’s not the case. Serkis will still play the character via motion capture…but he’ll have some fancy new protectors in the form of the Praetorian Guard.
