Rian Johnson Explains How Kylo Ren Has Changed In ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Rian Johnson discusses how Kylo Ren has developed since he killed his father in The Force Awakens

Kylo Ren’s internal struggle didn’t end with Han Solo’s death, at least according to the director. While speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Rian Johnson discussed how Kylo Ren has developed since he killed his father in The Force Awakens, and apparently the character will only grow darker in The Last Jedi.

“He’s definitely been knocked off base. The defeat that he had at the end of The Force Awakens, but even bigger than that, his huge defining act which, spoiler alert, is the murder of his father… That’s the more interesting thing to dive into. How has he dealt with that in his head? Where is he at in terms of that act and what does that mean for him?”

Johnson then went on to discuss how Kylo Ren’s turn to the dark side symbolises the journey through adolescence that we all must face.

“Kylo represents kind of the rebellious anger that you feel during that period. Honestly, sometimes it’s a healthy desire to push away from the place that you know, from the things that you came from. But he obviously does it in an extreme that’s not healthy at all.”

    1. Yeah I hope he’s still struggling with the pull to the light. Personally, I would like to see Kylo go fully to the dark side.

      If he doesn’t wear the helmet I’ll be disappointed. It’s such a cool costume, and he’s terrifying in that helmet.

      1. Yeah that’s what I expect. I think he’ll have the helmet off for a major chunk of the film. It allows us to see his facial reactions and emotions, but it would be really cool to see him upgrade his helmet.
