EW sheds light on Star Wars’ Kylo Ren

EW have released a new batch of images from Star Wars: The Force Awakens featuring Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Domhnall Gleeson as fellow bad guy General Hux and Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, plus new shots of our heroes Daisy Ridley as Rey, Oscar Isaac as Poe and John Boyega as Finn, plus shots of Abrams and co-writer Lawrence Kasdan and more.

They also reveal more about Kylo Ren:

We came to learn that he was allied with The First Order, a remnant of the Empire that remains a fearsome threat to the galaxy and its denizens. Above, he is seen flanked by their stormtroopers, striding with intense purpose through the smoldering ruins of a once peaceful village on Jakku.

What does he want? That much remains unclear, although he seems to be a Vader obsessive, with an appearance influenced by that dark lord of the Sith who met his demise long before Ren’s birth. “The movie explains the origins of the mask and where it’s from, but the design was meant to be a nod to the Vader mask,” Abrams tells EW. “[Ren] is well aware of what’s come before, and that’s very much a part of the story of the film.”

Abrams can confirm what many suspected, the croos-blade lightsabre is weapon he crafted all by his lonesome. “The lightsaber is something that he built himself, and is as dangerous and as fierce and as ragged as the character,” Abrams says.
