Star Wars The Force Awakens supreme leader snoke 2

Another day, another clip from the J.J. Abrams audio commentary that will be included on the upcoming Blu-ray re-release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens! This except, which you can watch for yourself over at io9, finds Abrams talking over Kylo Ren’s meeting with Supreme Leader Snoke. The bulk of the clip is Abrams lavishing praise on Andy Serkis (who he cast after watching an early cut of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), but he also reveals that this scene originally featured an unmasked Kylo Ren. When he decided to save that reveal for later in the movie, a CGI mask was placed over Adam Driver’s head.

Artist Mark Brooks has been doing stunning work in the pages of Marvel’s Han Solo miniseries, recreating familiar faces and brand new aliens alike with his detailed pencil work And like many artists, he’s inserted his fair share of personal touches and easter eggs into his work…like how two characters are based on his wife and his editor, making them now part of the Star Wars canon.

And naturally, someone asked him if he’d ever want to make a Star Wars movie. His response:

Hmmm, nahhh… I dunnoooo…– OF COURSE I’D CONSIDER IT!
