Star Wars Hijacked Andy Serkis Press Tour For Planet Of The Apes


It is disappointing to hear Serkis say people wanted to talk about Snoke more than Caesar. It makes a bit of sense, given audiences had not seen Snoke back in 2014 and did not know how utterly dull the character would end up being. Still, to think you have one of the best movies of the 2010s in “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” and one of the most complex characters of the decade, and someone would rather ask about a movie they knew Serkis was unable to talk about? Talk about a waste.

Indeed, Snoke is a bland character, a clear Palpatine knock-off (literally!) and not much else. Though it makes sense that Serkis was “gutted” about Snoke being chopped in half by Kylo Ren in “The Last Jedi,” the character didn’t have anything left to offer. As good an actor and motion capture performer as Andy Serkis is, even he could not make Snoke more than the nothing character that is on the page. Still, at least Serkis made peace with the franchise eventually, and returned to give us arguably the best “Star Wars” character in a decade as Kino Loy in “Andor.”
