She was able to find the light side even in the weightier moments. “There was this thing,” she says, laughing as she starts to recall. “JJ would ask us to do the scene without speaking, just to feel the emotional… whatever. He was like, ‘You never know what could come up.’ We did that a couple of times. Then it became a joke, because we would just wet ourselves laughing. I said to JJ, ‘You have to do a bloopers reel,’ because I couldn’t keep my shit together at all.”
The comic solicitations for January are out, and they include The Rise of Kylo Ren #2, in which we learn some very important details about Ben Solo and the Knights of Ren.

Writer Charles Soule talked about The Rise of Kylo Ren – the four-issue comic that will give us some background on Kylo and the Knights of Ren – at Fan Expo Toronto, as documented by CBR.
“You know, Ben Solo is tragic,” Soule said. “The potential of him from the day he was born, everyone around him saw or thought they saw what he could be. So he was put in all these different paths, and we’ve kind of seen how that’s gone wrong in the films so far. This is a story about Ben Solo, understanding some of the choices he made.”
Soule also talks about getting some points of The Rise of Skywalker and working with the Lucasfilm Story Group. He also spoke more extensively with SWNN about all his Star Wars work so far.
But for those looking for more Kylo specifically, and of something a lot closer at hand, StarWars.com has a preview of Age Of Resistance: Kylo Ren, which involves Kylo… Negotiating? Uh-oh. It’s out next week, though Kylo also plays major parts in the Hux and Snoke issues, which are available now.
We’ve got two comics coming Wednesday, September 11, both with sequel trilogy ties.Continue reading “Star Wars out this week: Snoke, Holdo”
