A tiny bit of new footage for Star Wars: The Force Awakens made its surprising debut today on Instagram.

While we can’t be certain, this sounds a lot like Andy Serkis who will be playing Supreme Leader Snoke, a character that was revealed this week to be someone in touch with the Dark Side of the Force.

With Force Friday coming up on Sept. 4, promotion for this film is about to hit a fever pitch and is sure to carry on through to the film’s eventual release on Dec. 18.
