When we last saw Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens he had just killed his father, Han Solo, wounded Finn, and battled nearly to the death with The Scavenger, Rey. What can we expect from his path in The Last Jedi? Director Rian Johnson shared his thoughts in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly.
There has been a lot of speculation, theorizing, and conjecture about Rey’s family since we first met her in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We won’t go into any of that here, as Coffee With Kenobi doesn’t deal in any of those things, but Entertainment Weekly has revealed that the subject of Rey’s parentage will be a factor in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
First we hear from director Rian Johnson…
As summer begins to wind down, the hype for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is beginning to ramp up. As part of its fall movie preview double issue, Entertainment Weekly has revealed two exclusive covers for TLJ, as well as all-new images from the film. These features are just the starting point for coverage of The Last Jedi that Entertainment Weekly will be bringing to fans throughout the week.

In the second episode of Star Wars Forces of Destiny, “BB-8 Bandits,” we return to Jakku and continue our journey with Rey (voiced by Daisy Ridley) and BB-8. (Click here to watch this episode.) The episode picks up the morning after Rey meets BB-8, decides to take him in for the night, and rescues him from the Nightwatcher Worm — as seen in the first episode, “Sands of Jakku.”

They’re finally here! After being announced first at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando this past spring, Star Wars Forces of Destiny has arrived with its first episode, “Sands of Jakku,” featuring an adventure with Rey and BB-8. If you have not seen the episode yet, you can see it now on Disney’s YouTube Channel.
These new animated shorts are very much in the tradition of the Star Wars: Clone Wars micro-series that ran for three seasons on the Cartoon Network, from 2003-2005. Clone Wars and Forces of Destiny are stories told in bite-sized chunks that run between two-three minutes. You wouldn’t think much territory would be covered in such a brief time. However, if you watched Clone Wars, you know that’s a misleading assumption. This first episode of Forces of Destiny is filled to the brim with Star Wars goodness.
Just released today! Here’s a sneak peek at Star Wars Forces of Destiny, which makes its debut next week on Disney’s YouTube channel. Find out more below:
