Great news for Star Wars fans!
In the new cover of Vanity Fair, we have gotten a lot of info! We know that Lupita Nyong'o will be playing Maz Kanata, Gwendoline Christie will be playing chrome-trooper Captain Phasma, and we know that Adam Driver will be playing Kylo Ren! (Very excited about that!)
It has been confirmed that Andy Serkis has the voice in the first Force awakens trailer. Now we got some more information on who Andy Serkis will be playing. Andy is the KING of motion-capture, so it is no surprise that he was going to do mo-cap in this movie too.
He's confirmed to be playing a character with the name of Supreme Leader Snoke. Is it just me who think that name sound pretty stupid? I don't know. But we can understand from this picture that he will be playing some sort of alien or cyborg.
After seeing these concept art photos, I've heard a lot of rumors that this is Andy Serkis. It does fit with his description tho. Since he has that dark batman-voice, and is motion-captured. Also he's a "Supreme Leader". I have a feeling that he will be the new "Darth Sidius type" character. He is probably a dark jedi/sith. I think he will be the character who make Kylo Ren turn to the dark side.
It has been rumored that he would be playing Darth Plagueis, but I don't think so. I believe that he will be an original character.
It is a possibility that he will play a cyborg type character like this too, but I feel like it is highly unlikely. No matter what he is playing, I think it will be awesome anyways!
What do you think? Let me know!
