With the 90th Academy Awards coming tomorrow night, I wanted to share another Andy Serkis performance up for an Oscar, this time from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
“You are no Vader. You are just a child in a mask.” ~ Supreme Leader Snoke
I feel like both Andy Serkis and his character Supreme Leader Snoke got short changed in The Last Jedi! There was such a build up to his character and like everyone else I really wanted to see just how evil the character could be!
Alas, the story narrative took a different turn and Snoke went out without much fan fair. However, it was a very cool scene, that set up the story for some interesting new twists and turns. It look like the focus will new be on the evolution of Kylo Ren and his decent into evil. I thought the new version of Snoke on screen was much improved over The Force Awakens and its fun to see Andy Serkis in his element..
Take a look behind the magic at the Oscar nominated Visual Effects of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In this clip we get a closer look at the motion capture performance by Andy Serkis and the incredible work by ILM Artists to bring Snoke to life.
