In an interview with Empire Magazine to promote The Last Jedi, Andy Serkis made a bold claim: Supreme Leader Snoke is darker than Emperor Palpatine!  Snoke is shrouded in mystery and seems like an ancient creature, so it will be interesting to see if we get any hints on his backstory.

Snoke is bloody dark; way darker than Palpatine. He’s riddled with this osteoporosis so his body’s twisted, like a corkscrew. He’s incredibly damaged, so there’s a bizarre vulnerability about him. Beneath that vulnerability, though, is this intense hatred.”

“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.

At the end of the last trailer, we see Snoke telling someone, presumably Rey, to fulfill her destiny. It is from the scene where Rey is being tortured, and you can actually make it out as well by lip reading that it comes from that specific scene.  Snoke is a character who is shrouded in mystery, and it will be really interesting to see what his ultimate goals are. What is Kylo’s (or possibly Rey’s) potential destiny with the Dark Side?

We’ll have to see what Rian Johnson has in store for us on December 15, which is only 12 days away!
