When it comes to Star Wars, the biggest, vilest threats to the galaxy have generally come from the Dark Side. But a new quote from the man performing as Supreme Leader Snoke suggests that things will be slightly different in The Last Jedi.
A post on Empire‘s website excerpts the magazine’s interview with Andy Serkis, who says that the being in charge of the First Order is not like the bad guys who came before him in the Star Wars universe:
He’s definitely not a Sith, but he’s certainly at the darker end of the Force. Without giving too much away, that begins to unfold a little in this one.
Yeah, it isn’t much to go on. A load of theories have been floated about Supreme Leader Snoke since the character appeared in The Force Awakens, many of them positing that he was a Sith Lord. Serkis’ remarks don’t rule out a connection to the Force, but they do make it seem as though Snoke might have a divergent relationship with the energy that moves through all things. We’ll hopefully get more substance when The Last Jedi hits theatres on December 14.
