‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’: Snoke Has A Tragic Past And Here’s The Details


As the leader of the First Order, Supreme Leader Snoke guides the legion of Stormtroopers to spread terror across the whole galaxy. With the new Star Wars movie a few weeks away from premiering, we are learning why.

Actor, Andy Serkis spoke with Entertainment Weekly about this villain in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and called him” a cruel master, a 9-foot-tall alien humanoid who disparages and dominates” Kylo Ren and General Hux.

Serkis had said that this character is in pain and wants to reflect the agony on the galaxy. He is like Emperor Palpatine and craves power. He is strong with the dark side and wants to manipulate the protégés until they are of no use to him anymore.

“His training of Kylo Ren is not yielding what he wants,” said Serkis. “Therefore his anger towards Kylo Ren is intensified because he can’t bear weakness in others. Part of the manipulation is goading him with Hux and playing them off against each other.”

Serkis has revealed some interesting backstory about Snoke and said that he has a vendetta against Resistance and the Republic.

“The thing about Snoke is that he is extremely strong with the Force, the dark side of the Force. He’s terribly powerful, of course. But he is also a very vulnerable and wounded character,” Serkis said. “He has suffered and he has suffered injury. The way that his malevolence comes out is in reaction to that. His hatred of the Resistance is fueled by what’s happened to him personally.”

Snoke’s strength is a match by the might of the First Order and the people will realize how powerful the villains are in The Last Jedi.

“Despite the fact that the Starkiller Base has been destroyed and the Resistance has been putting up a fight, we will discover that the First Order has limitless resources in this one,” Serkis said.

Though the disappointment in Kylo Ren continues to increase, he may be satisfied with a replacement in Rey.

Snoke appeared as a hologram in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and is given a lot more to do in the upcoming movie.

“This time you get to see him, as in his real presence,” said Serkis. “In the previous movie we saw him as this huge hologram and tele-presence, and you get to meet him in the flesh this time.”

Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres December 15.
