From, gaze into the many-dotted face of Andy Serkis’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens character, Supreme Leader Snoke (click to enlarge):


Are you at all surprised that Serkis’ character is going to be motion capture? The guy is the master of this field and I’m sure he’s still angling to get performance capture artists recognized by the Oscars. Being in a Star Wars movie won’t hurt that crusade.

We now have a character name to attach to this currently invisible being: Supreme Leader Snoke. Sounds like a bad dude, and since we know that Serkis’ voice is the one in the original teaser, he also sounds like a bad dude.

Snoke is a funny word though. It sounds like some fuzzy mammal that only lives in New Zealand.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens obliterates the box office on December 18.
