RUMOR: Casting For Andor Series Suggests The Return Of Snoke



News for the Star Wars Spin-Off series Andor has recently begun making the rounds due to its upcoming release. The 12 episode series is set 5 years before the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story where we follow one of the main characters from that film, Cassian Andor, as he establishes himself as one of the best spies in the Rebellion. 

The series will see actor Diego Luna reprise his role as the titular spy along with Forest Whitaker reprising his role as Saw Gererra, while Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Denies Gouh, Kyle Soller and Genevieve O’Reilly also join the cast. But recently a casting report shows the name of another actor who has history with Star Wars, and some fans are concerned.

According to the Making Star Wars fan site actor Andy Serkis will be joining the series. If you recall Andy Serkis played Supreme Leader Snoke in the Disney Star Wars Trilogy, debuting in 2015’s The Force Awakens and 2017’s The Last Jedi. Some are worried that Snoke may play some part in the series, as he is somewhat of a controversial character, since in The Rise of Skywalker he was revealed to only be a puppet of Darth Sidious. 

First of all, we have to remember that this is a rumor. Nothing has been officially announced or confirmed. Second, Andy Serkis is well known for his motion capture techniques. Known as the “Master of Motion Capture”, the actor has done various roles both on camera and in the computer. He is also a voice actor. So him appearing in this series doesn’t confirm Snoke’s return. Perhaps he will play a different character. In 2005’s King Kong Serkis not only played the titular Kong, but also the ship’s cook.

The Andor series will be released Exclusively on Disney Plus sometime in 2022.
