Ten things Andy Serkis Can Say About "Star Wars: The Force Awakens"

Bespin refugee - December 17, 2014
While he isn't able to say much about his character in next year's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", he is able to make a few clarifications;

First, he only plays one character in the film, but, he can't say if we will see Serkis himself onscreen, or if his character be rendered through performance capture; “These things will all come out in the fullness of time, I promise.” The report of that character "leading a band of gymnasts or acrobats" is not true.

Serkis' voice was unaltered for the trailer. Based on that voice, has the character seen some harsh action in the galaxy over the years? "Serkis laughs, and considers what he can reveal. “I have to be very careful about how I answer these questions. The character …” he says, followed by a long pause. “He’s been through some stuff.

About how large a role his voice would play in the teaser; “Director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy] told me, ‘You’re all over the trailer,’ but I didn’t know what that meant,” Serkis says. “I thought, ‘Oh great, they’re using the voice of the character I play for the trailer. That’s fantastic.’ Not thinking what that would actually translate into.

On the rumored "The Ancient Fear" subtitle? "...it’s always just been called Episode VII to this point,” Serkis says. “Then I knew it was called The Force Awakens. It’s very pertinent.

On Harrison Ford's on-set injury; While Serkis wasn’t present when it happened, “But I talked to him about it, and it was all dealt with very seamlessly, so it’s all cool. And he’s fully recovered now. And he came back pretty quick.” Were people more cautious around the Corellian freighter after that? “I would think so!” Serkis said."

On set spies; “People were flying drones over the walls to see what’s going on,” Serkis says. The secrecy is not about wanting to withhold from fans, he added—“it’s about not wanting to spoil anything for anyone. The expectation is massive, and nobody wants to ruin it in any way. I think that’s right. No one wants to, by saying the wrong thing or being misleading, you don’t want to dilute it."

Is he getting an action figure of his character? “That, I hope,” Serkis says, crossing his arms. “I’d better.
