But fans of the saga are well aware that death is not an impediment to bring back the most beloved figures of the brand.
According to Making Star Wars (via Comicbook), Andy Serkis would have been hired by Lucasfilm to be part of Andor. The media does not provide details about the character that will remain in the hands of the actor, however, it does not rule out the possibility that it is Snoke in relatively young years (remember that it is an imperfect clone of Emperor Palpatine, so anything could happen ). On the other hand, it is also committed that Serkis he would take a human role in the Cassian Andor series, arguably estranged from Snoke; This would allow Andy to redeem himself after the antagonist’s insane conclusion in The Last Jedi.
