    Kylo Ren: Where the Journey Ends for a Fallen Hero

    In the new trilogy of Star Wars films, Kylo Ren is a character repeatedly examined as one full of conflict, being pulled in two directions by opposite sides of the Force. At the end of The Last Jedi, he chooses to tear down all remnants of a legacy that has overburdened him and build a new one in its place, seemingly cementing himself in an ill-natured goal that prompts Rey to stop him.

    However, it’s believed by many fans that he still isn’t too far gone, and that enough light exists in him that he could in fact be turned, as Rey was determined to do for much of The Last Jedi. On the other side of the spectrum, one could argue that Kylo going through a redemption arc that mirrors his grandfather’s would render Luke’s sacrifice meaningless, that his declaration to Leia that "no one’s ever really gone" was more in reference to the memory of who Kylo used to be rather than suggesting Kylo is still capable of saving.

    Should Kylo be redeemed in The Rise of Skywalker, the final installment in the Skywalker saga? And if he is redeemed, would that take away from the positions the characters decided to defend by the end of The Last Jedi?

      Personally, I really, *really* dislike the whole idea that Rey has to be linked to one of the more important figures in the saga to have gotten her powers. The execution admittedly could’ve used some work, particularly in The Force Awakens, but the incredibly vast world of Star Wars feels much smaller when you boil down most of the important events to being linked to a single family line.

      Star Wars: The Difference in Luke and Rey as Chosen Ones

      Watching Thanos manhandle the original three (Tony, Cap, and Thor) during Endgame’s climax without a single one of the Stones kept me on the edge of my seat in the theatre. His younger self may not have had the sympathetic factor that he did in Infinity War, but he certainly solidified why he remained a force to be reckoned with up until the very last second of the battle.

      This is something I’ve always thought and said when it comes to filmmaking in general, especially in regards to adapting beloved properties. Regardless of how well it ends up turning out, the vision of the director should come first; appeasing fans is a plus, yes, but it shouldn’t be the main focus of making a fictional piece. With so many people that have different ideas and expectations of what something should be, you only risk making even more people unhappy by trying to cater specifically to what certain viewers want.

      That said, I’m really excited to see what Reeves has in store for this iteration of the character. Loved his work on the last two movies in the rebooted Planet of the Apes series- especially Dawn, and am confident that his take on the Batman mythos will be a deeply interesting one.
