Star Wars The Force Awakens Kylo Ren Darth Vader

If you weren’t lucky enough to attend South By Southwest to see the world premiere of the ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ documentary, all you have to do is head to the nearest store and pick up a copy of J.J. Abrams’ acclaimed blockbuster set in a galaxy far, far away for yourself. And not only will you be able to watch ‘Secrets of The Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey’, but you’ll also get a plethora of other special features as well. But if you weren’t enticed enough by the fact that you could own one of the best movies of 2015 with deleted scenes, featurettes, and more, then we have a little preview for you involving Kylo Ren that might just change your mind.


(But seriously, you’ve all seen the movie more than once by now, so it doesn’t matter)

From the moment that the world learned that Adam Driver’s lightsaber-wielding First Order operative was the son of Han Solo and Leia Organa, everyone wondered how he could have ended up on the Dark Side with Supreme Leader Snoke. Now, thanks to a clip from the special features of ‘Episode VII’, we finally have the answer. Check out the video below that finds Driver and Abrams filling us in on the details surrounding Ben Solo’s transformation into Kylo Ren: 

Anyone that saw the movie could tell that Ren had abandonment and daddy issues, but the idea of Snoke targeting the young Solo is very interesting. Hopefully that will be explored more in the upcoming films or some other ‘Star Wars’ tie-in down the line. Also, on a semi-related note, let’s get some shots of Chewbacca holding baby Ben while we’re at it. We all know that it happened, now show us, Lucasfilm.

What do you think of this clip from the special features of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’? Are you excited to pick up your copy if you haven’t yet? And which version of the home release will you be getting? Sound off in the comments.  

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ starring John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill is available on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital now.

Despite being a “professional writer”, Ben likes run-on sentences and puns far too much.

He also can’t decide between buying the Walmart or the Target editions of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’.
