While the main focus of attention for Star Wars fans is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which hit theaters three weeks ago, the focus will soon shift back to the sequel trilogy with Star Wars Episode VIII hitting theaters later this year. There are lots of questions about what can be expected from the new film, many surrounding the character of Kylo Ren/Ben Solo. Adam Driver, who plays Kylo in the sequel trilogy, was interviewed by Larry King recently and was asked about what hints he could give about Episode VIII. Check it out below,
Driver's answer of "humanity" is a very interesting one. Though the question was about Kylo, it appears as though Driver is talking more generally about the film as a whole. There has been much speculation about if Kylo can be redeemed, and given that Driver is talking about humanity perhaps we'll see Kylo start down the path of redemption.
Star Wars Episode VIII hits theaters on December 15th, 2017 and stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and John Boyega. The film is directed by Rian Johnson.
