New photos of Supreme Leader Snoke debut online
Questions still linger about the mysterious Supreme Leader Snoke from Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and though director Rian Johnson says we won’t be getting many answers about him, we will be seeing the big man himself in a non-hologram form. Played by Andy Serkis in the film, two new images of the character have made their way online, one from the Star Wars Trading Card app and the other from a series of Star Wars stamps set to debut in the UK in October (via BBC). In addition, a new image of Luke Skywalker has arrived online from Empire, and you can check out all three in the gallery below!
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is written and directed by Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper) and continues the storylines introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, welcoming back cast members Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, the late Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Domhnall Gleeson as Hux, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, and Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke. New cast members will include Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro, Academy Award nominee Laura Dern, and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran as Rose.
The sequel is produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman and executive produced by J.J. Abrams, Jason McGatlin, and Tom Karnowski. Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in regular and IMAX theaters on December 15, 2017.
