Snoke Will Be A 100% Motion Capture Role In The Last Jedi

If you can remember a few month back (possibly even a year maybe) there were some reports surfacing that there was going to be a Snoke puppet used for The Last Jedi. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly and director Rian Johnson those rumors have been proved false. Snoke will be CGI with the help of motion capture technology.

Snoke will once again be played by Andy Serkis who has made a huge reputation for himself in mo-cap roles including Gollum, King Kong and Caesar for Planet of the Apes. Rian Johnson said he was absolutely thrilled¬†with Serkis’ performance in the movie and that the character will have a lot more to do in this installment. However, if you think that means we’ll get his origin you should think again. Johnson said that we’ll learn as much about Snoke as we need to know and he reminded the interviewer that there was no backstory from Palpatine until the release of the prequels.

    Yup, it snuck past me and got buried. I’m up for it sir!

  • Thomas Cruise

    Let me get the Crisco and turn on some Kenny Loggins.

  • Bulgingsnake

    I’ll try anything three times.

  • Thomas Cruise

    Okay, you’d look even better with me riding you while wearing a Donald Duck sailor suit. You know; the kind with no pants for the freedom a man needs to look hot and be hard all at once.

  • Bulgingsnake

    Tell me something I Don’t know!

  • Thomas Cruise

    Damn good advice! You, sir, are a certifiable Scientologenius.

  • Thomas Cruise

    You’re looking really sweet in that helmet and sunglasses.

  • Bulgingsnake

    Did you get the email?

  • Beastly beast

    Call your Scientology peeps and get to ass blading Tom!

  • Bulgingsnake

    Good stuff Tom.

  • Thomas Cruise

    I tried out for this role but lost it because I was too good during the audition. We’re surrounded by jealous haters and Chevrolets, and both should be eradicated immediately.

  • Beastly beast

    Snoke is gonna get corganed by a jawa.

  • Bulgingsnake

    Snoke? More like LOSER! 100 Bucks says he kicks the bucket in the third act!

  • Mr. Perfect

    In otherwords: Well let you know long after we recouped that $4 Billion and made a handsome profit on the investment.

  • Beastly beast

    That’s a relief…. cuz 100% would have been a total corgan.
