10. Andy Serkis as Darth Plagueis
No, I’m not saying Supreme Leader Snoke from The Force Awakens is Darth Plagueis. What I’m saying is, there really is no better actor for the job. Plagueis, in Legends, was a Muun, a species that is nigh impossible to render on-screen without the use of CGI. Andy Serkis is the master of motion capture and creating incredible performances that translate seamlessly into computer animated creatures. It’s a no-brainer; even if the Legends had been turned into films instead of creating a whole new story, Serkis was just meant to be in Star Wars. And who knows, maybe we’ll see Plagueis the Wise sometime down the road in a spinoff movie.
