Death may not stop Snoke (Andy Serkis) from returning in “Star Wars: Episode 9.” The former Supreme Leader’s role ended with his life in “The Last Jedi”...or did it? In a recent interview, Serkis hinted at his characters’s return.

The following article contains spoilers from “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and the upcoming “Episode 9.”

Supreme Leader Snoke died in “The Last Jedi,” cut down by his own apprentice. Talking about the death in an interview with Games Radar, Serkis said that he was shocked when learned of his character’s death, but he understood why they wanted to take this route for his character.

Serkis said he loves the scene in which Snoke is killed, especially the interaction between his character and the protagonist, Rey (Daisy Ridley). The actor said that he wishes that his character had survived, but then ended that conversation with a cryptic, “Who knows?”

In the world of sci-fi like “Star Wars,” where dead characters have a way of coming back in different ways, it remains to be seen if JJ Abrams, who is directing “Star Wars: Episode 9,” will find a way to bring back Snoke. Serkis said he feels Snoke is a “great character” and is willing to reprise his role if he gets that call.

How will Snoke return in the next film? One popular theory is that the former Supreme Leader is actually Darth Plagueis, a Sith Lord who was seeking the key to become immortal.

There were many creative choices that Rian Johnson made in “The Last Jedi” that a large section of the “Star Wars” fan base didn’t approve of. However, in a recent post on Twitter, Johnson thanked the “passionate,” “opinionated,” “argumentative,” and “supportive” fans. Although there was mixed response for the film, it went on to become a big box office hit.

The anticipation is now high for “Star Wars: Episode 9.” Filming is currently ongoing, but there is no official word on the title yet. According to Screen Rant, there are a few theories about what the title could be.

One popular theory is that “Star Wars: Episode 9” title will be “Spark of Hope,” hinting at the sacrifice by Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) in “The Last Jedi.” The other popular title is “The Last Hope,” which will not only wrap up the new trilogy, but also Luke Skywalker’s journey that started with “A New Hope.”
