    As promised, Anthony Breznican of Entertainment Weekly continues to bring us even more insight into Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In his first article today, he talks to actor Andy Serkis and the film's director Rian Johnson about Snoke's past and his motivations against the Republic.





    EW's article confirms some things that we already know about the Supreme Leader of the First Order. We know he is freakishly tall, and now we finally have a number to attach to that height. Breznican points out that Snoke is 9-feet tall. He goes on to talk about his relationship with his lieutenants Kylo Ren (played by Adam Driver) and General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson.)

    One of the things that drives Snoke is his unquenchable rage against the Republic. He is an extremely powerful Force user, as we will witness in the film, who is only inhibited by his physicality and his vulnerabilities as a wounded individual. As Breznican points out, there are two kinds of people that deal with immense pain. One turns that pain to helping others avoid it themselves. The other magnifies that pain by inflicting it on others. Snoke is the latter.

    We don't know exactly what things Snoke has suffered to bring him to where he is, but it's something that The Last Jedi will at least explore in part. The movie may not connect all of the dots with the character's backstory, but we should be able to discount some theories and bring new life to others after the movie comes out.

    In The Last Jedi, we will be seeing Snoke in the flesh for the first time, and it is in this movie that viewers can finally take in the full scope of his deformity.

    Serkis revealed a neat little trick he used during performance capture to make his face movements match Snoke's features naturally.

    Serkis also revealed the chilling real-world inspiration behind Snoke's appearance.

    Revenge is only part of his motivation. Greed is another underlying factor - a greed that can be easily seen in his overt opulence. Perhaps due to his great suffering, Snoke indulges in the galaxy's finer things (as witnessed by his shiny gold robe), a trait that contrasts him against the former Emperor.

    UPDATE!



    PORGS!!!

    Porg's have dominated the merchandising push for The Last Jedi, capturing the hearts of people of all ages with their undeniable cuteness. But as John Boyega explains, it can be touch and go with porgs depending on how many you're dealing with:





    Porgs sound like they kind of do what they want, and like any species, are protective of one another, but ultimately how protective can they be? We have a feeling they will learn to warm up to certain characters in The Last Jedi, perhaps a certain wookiee who recently lost his best friend.

    Breznican closes out his coverage with a throwback to Gremlins, a very appropriate reference:
