Kylo Ren

Kylo Ren

SPOILERS AHEAD! Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released in the United States on Blu Ray and other formats yesterday. So today my article will be about a fantastic character with a great back story, Kylo Ren, aka Ben Solo. He can be seen in the film, 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' and he is also signed on for Star Wars Episode VIII and Star Wars Episode IX. He can also be found in the video game Disney INFINITY 3.0. In other merchandise he can be found in books, toys, clothing, pins, Disney art, and other various outlets.

He makes his base on a First Order Star Destroyer and Starkiller Base before the Rebellion destroyed it. His allies include Captain Phasma, Stormtroopers, Supreme Leader Snoke, General Hux, and other members of the First Order. His enemies include Poe Dameron, Chewbacca, Rey, Finn, BB-8, C-3PO, R2-D2, Luke Skywalker, and his parents Han Solo and Leia Organa although they still see the good in him.

Kylo Ren

Kylo Ren's story is pretty close to the story of Anakin Skywalker's turn to the dark side. He was a Jedi Padawan, became Supreme Leader Snoke's apprentice, killed a ton of Jedi, and now takes orders from a scared individual. His outfit is really cool. It consists of black Jedi robes, black gloves, black boots, a black and silver mask similar to Darth Vader's even though he didn't need to to breathe like Vader did. Finally he has a fantastic looking red cross guard lightsaber which he uses in the film to further his training to the dark side by killing his father Han Solo.

He is played by Adam Driver. He is ruthless, vile, and he is obsessed with killing the last of the Jedi.

Kylo Ren can be found in Disney parks as a meet and greet character in Disneyland and Walt Disney World. He can also be seen in the newest version of World of Color at Disney California Adventure. It will be interesting to see how big of a role he will place in the new Star Wars Lands when they open at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
