Snoke is Confirmed to be a \’New Character\’ in The Force Awakens



The never-ending Darth Plagueis speculation with The Force Awakens has become a running joke with some fans, but there are those who just won’t let it go. Yesterday Daisy Ridley confirmed that Rey’s staff is just a staff and has nothing to do with Plagueis, and today Andy Serkis confirmed that Snoke is not Plagueis using a different name.

In the new EW, Andy Serkis confirms Snoke is an all-new character:

“No, he’s a new character in this universe. It is very much a newly-introduced character,” Serkis says. “He’s aware of what’s gone on, in the respect that he has been around and is aware of prior events. I think it’d be fair to say that he is aware of the past to a great degree.”

Hopefully this will put an end to the dumb Plagueis speculation…
