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”

And sorry, Adam Driver fans – Skywalker Sound vet Matthew Wood (The Clone Wars) will be voicing Kylo Ren.
The story picks up after a harrowing escape from the First Order, as the Colossus and all its residents find themselves lost in space, pursued by Agent Tierny and Commander Pyre. Kaz and team also face a myriad of new dangers along the way including bounty hunters, a suspicious Hutt, General Hux and Supreme Leader Kylo Ren. Meanwhile, Tam grapples with her future and where her true allegiance lies, with her friends or the First Order. The thrilling final season will showcase how the unlikeliest of heroes can help spark hope across the galaxy.
