There are 2 more days until the big premiere of Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens, which is now the top trending subject everywhere you go. It is expected to be one of the best movies of 2015, but you know what they say, don’t judge a book by its cover; so, my advice for the fans is that they shouldn’t get too enthusiastic about Star Wars, and it’s better to wait until you see it.
Anyway, let’s move on to this article’s subject, which is obviously, about the two characters in Star Wars – Kylo Ren and Darth Vader. Now, we know that there’s no Darth Vader anymore, but he was not forgotten and his new successor is the mysterious figure and the antagonist of the movie – Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).
Based on the information from the trailers, photos, interviews and such, here are some facts about this new ‘bad guy’ in Star Wars, which is thought to be a more sinister figure than his predecessor Darth Vader.
First, looking from the director’s perspective, he sees Kylo as an evil intentioned character, with the purpose of making the fight even more brutal. The next thing would be that Kylo does not follow any rules or orders, except taking orders from the mysterious Supreme Leader Snoke, meanwhile Vader was very obedient to the orders he received.
Another thing about him is that he is not a Sith, but a member of the Rens, which clearly makes him less obedient to following rules and he’s more interested about the Dark side of the Force; he also built up his sword, which kinda resembles his personality: harsh and acid.
Even if he’s an evil character, he is still young and inexperienced about accomplishing his plans, this is why he’s more of a ‘freshman’ in being the bad guy, so he still needs to learn a few more things.
The interesting part about him is that he thinks he’s a hero, which is a common feature with Darth Vader, and that all his actions and thoughts are very moral.
The last thing we can say about him is that Kylo sees himself as the successor of Vader, he even copies the clothing, the mask and the entire image about Vader. Now his purpose is to succeed in accomplishing what his predecessor has failed, which probably is to kill the last Jedi – Luke Skywalker.
