Adam Driver says that fans can expect Kylo Ren to show "humanity" in Episode VIII



Speaking to Larry King, Adam Driver explained how Kylo Ren will show a new side in Episode VIII - and it might not be what you would expect.

Larry: Without giving away any spoilers, what’s one aspect about Kylo Ren you’re excited you’re excited for fans to see in the next film?

Adam: I think, erm, maybe this is such a general answer but you know – humanity. Even though it’s very much a blockbuster movie, there was no taking that for granted and that we were forced to be general. There was a lot of plot points that we knew were operating in the first one, that we get to explain more in the second one, to make both of them make sense. But they do kind of feel socially active to me, and George Lucas originally, a lot of Star Wars was in response to Vietnam and a lot of what I remember talking about with JJ and Rian was this idea of terrorism, and two sides being morally justified to behave however they wanted to to get whatever they thought was absolutely correct.


Adam Driver is also pictured at the New York Critics Circle awards on 3 January.

So ONTD - what do you make of Adam's comments here/what do you think they indicate about what they might do with the character in Episode VIII?
