Andy Serkis has some thoughts on the death of Supreme Leader Snoke, who so unmercifully perished in the most recent last Star Wars film, The Last Jedi.

While hes had a year to think about it all, Mowgli director Andy has come to the conclusion that his death was really not cool. Not cool at all.

Of course he is a little biased by it all, having played the character within the realms of motion-capture.

But still, he felt the whole thing was a little premature and really cut a dude down in his prime, when Adam Driver wielded his lightsaber as Kylo Ren and cut Snoke in half.

So cruel, Andy described the scene to Entertainment Weekly as part of their Couch Surfer sessions, as it was played back to him on the screen for posterity.



Hes disposed of so early on in his career. Ive got to say, I mean come on.

His murder was one of the more dividing moments within the Star Wars fandom, as he was cut down by his own apprentice Kylo.

Andy added when prompted by the idea there were so many unanswered questions left by his death: I know, tell me about it!

He continued: Its a Star Wars movie, anything can happen. Im saying this with the hope that someone is listening out there.

Rian Johnson, you listening? JJ Abrams, you got anything?

Lord Snokes demise came as Kylo sought to protect his fleeting comrade Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, from a torturous death.

He summoned Luke Skywalkers lightsaber and did his thing, which didnt bode well for the bod of Snoke.

Andys revisit of his characters grisly death comes as John Boyega apparently shared some interesting information about the next instalment, due in December next year.

The 26-year-old, who plays the character of Finn in the franchise, confirmed the news in a off-hand quote, revealing that the new film will see a time-jump from the last offering.

According to a new Empire article, John Boyega has confirmed the film takes place one year after the events of The Last Jedi.



Not only does the news send us Star Wars fans into a frenzy of excitement at the return of the franchises historical convention, but the time-lapse also allows us to join the resistance a year after The Last Jedi left the group in tatters.
