The Resistance Broadcast – Could Andy Serkis’ Snoke Be Returning for Episode IX?

Listen or watch below! Andy Serkis recently cancelled his appearance at Keystone Comic Con due to a “last minute scheduling conflict”, could it be? Is it possible that Serkis is returning as Snoke in some form or another? We get into how this is possible, especially now that J. J. Abrams and Rian Johnson have both employed extensive Force visions and flashbacks in the sequel trilogy. We discuss that and other interesting angles as to how it’s possibly Joseph (our head canon first name for him) Snoke himself could play a role!

We get into other news like pointing out our favorite making of Solo notes and facts shared by screenwriter Jon Kasdan, and as always we feature YOU as we answer your questions in #AskTheResistance like – Will we see Rey’s new lightsaber before Star Wars: Episode IX hits theaters? Did your question make it on the show?
