With the marketing for Star Wars: The Last Jedi starting to heat up ahead of its December release, Adam Driver has been speaking about returning to the role of Ben Solo – a.k.a. Kylo Ren – teasing an “unexpected” development for the fallen Jedi.
Asked by Sunday Today host Willie Geist (via THR) if fans “will be happy with what happens to Kylo”, Driver responded that: “God, I hope. I think it will be hopefully unexpected.”
Details on Kylo Ren’s involvement in the plot for Star Wars: The Last Jedi have been kept tightly under wraps, so we can only speculate as to what this unexpected development might be: Could he add his mother Leia Organa or uncle Luke Skywalker to his list of kills? Might he turn on Supreme Leader Snoke and come back to the Light Side? Or could he even tempt Rey to the Dark Side?
In Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set for release on December 14th in the UK and December 15th in the States and sees returning cast members Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), Billie Lourd (Lieutenant Connix), Andy Serkis (Supreme Leader Snoke), Peter Mayhew and Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca), Tim Rose (Admiral Ackbar), Mike Quinn (Nien Nunb), Simon Pegg (Unkar Plutt), and Warwick Davis joined by new additions Jimmy Vee (Pan) as R2-D2, Kelly Marie Tran (Ladies Like Us) as Rose, and Benicio Del Toro (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Laura Dern (Jurassic Park).
