We’ve seen quite a bit from Star Wars: The Force Awakens at this stage, and yet J.J. Abrams has managed to keep his mystery box tightly shut where a few characters and plot points are concerned. One such character is the mo-cap villain that’ll be played by Andy Serkis (Avengers: Age Of Ultron, The Lord Of The Rings, King Kong), Supreme Leader Snoke.
We heard his voice narrating the first teaser, and we also had an image of Serkis decked out in his mo-cap gear, but aside from that we’ve had no idea what this big bad would look like… until now.
Indie Revolver has provided this piece of concept art, which might just give us some idea of how Snoke will be depicted in the movie – though they do caution that this was a very early design, and he may look a lot different when we actually see him on screen. Still, if this reptilian creature was even something they were considering, there’s always a chance at least some elements have made it through and influenced the character’s final appearance.
Starring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o and Max von Sydow, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to be released on December 18th, 2015.
