New Look At Snoke In Star Wars: The Force Awakens

With the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-Ray now available comes a batch of designs for Supreme Leader Snoke, played by Andy Serkis.

Snoke has officially been described as:

The Supreme Leader of the First Order, the mysterious Snoke has no permanent base of operations, preferring to contact his underlings from a mobile command post. Snoke is powerful with the dark side of the Force, and seduced Kylo Ren into abandoning the Jedi path to become his apprentice. But Snoke also commands General Hux and the technological war machine the First Order has engineered to destroy the New Republic and Leia Organa’s Resistance.

A redditor posted the following giving us a look at unused designs, which includes a white-robed Snoke, a scene involving Snoke on a viewer in front of Kylo Ren, a good look at Snoke’s malformed body and more.

New Luke Skywalker Concept Art & Images From Star Wars: The Force Awakens

What could have been, right?

Instead of getting that single scene from Luke Skywalker at the end of the movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens concept art reveals Mark Hamill may have originally played a larger role.

Reddit fans have been posting art and images of Luke Skywalker that are apparently a part of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-Ray extras.

That pic of Luke with Vader’s helmet is pretty cool. We know Kylo-Ren ended up with it. I wonder what that’s about? We also see an updated Luke image for Force Awakens from Return of the Jedi.

Return of the Jedi:

Listen To Yoda, Obi-Wan, Luke, Darth Vader & Palpatine In Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Listen to the secret dialogue in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Rey flashback scene.

We already knew the scene featured Yoda and Obi-Wan (voiced by both Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor), but apparently it features Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, the breathing of Darth Vader and Palpatine as well.

The Mike Zeroh YouTube channel put the video together, which first plays what we hear in the movie, and then later amplifies the sound so it can be heard a lot clearer. Cool video.

• A third scene sees Kylo Ren leading a squad of stormtroopers to the crash-site of the Millennium Falcon on the surface of Starkiller Base. As Kylo Ren inspects the abandoned ship memories of the Dark Side surface… and now knows Han Solo, his father, is conspiring against him.

• A scene would have introduced Carrie Fisher’s General Leia much earlier in the film as she weighs what to do after the First Order’s massacre on Jakku. Resistance communications officer Major Brance receives an early distress signal from BB-8 informing them of the attack…

Star Wars: The Force Awakens ILM Concept Art Revealed

Check out a batch of Star Wars: The Force Awakens concept art released by Industrial Arts & Magic.

“Each artist began to explore his individual response, and collectively, we began to answer, with our words and art. Out of our brainstorming sessions emerged visual imagery of where we might want to go and what it would look like when we got there. We were not merely illustrating scenes that already existed: we were initiating storytelling concepts through the visual images themselves,” Rick Carter, co-production designer, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, stated on the site.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is directed by JJ Abrams starring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Oscar Isaac, Peter Mayhew, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’o and Mark Hamill.
