Kylo on the path to redemption.
““But I don’t think it’s very interesting if the whole story is just ‘Will Kylo get his comeuppance?’ He’s a more complicated character than that and I think he deserves a more complicated story than that. I don’t see the point of trying to get behind his mask and learn more about him if all we’re going to learn is ‘Yeah, he’s just an evil bad guy that needs to be killed.’”
- Rian Johnson, director, The Last Jedi (2017)
Literally, this is what I’ve been saying to people who don’t believe Kylo will be anything more than a villain. Rian just confirmed it. Why would they remove the thing that makes him inhuman and focus on his emotions if his character was just one dimensional? I am so excited to see how Rian went about writing Kylo’s character and where his arc will lead him. (Also excited to see his arc cross paths with Rey and her reaction to his character change…but aren’t we all?)
