Adam Driver may have just revealed some key plot elements regarding this year’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Speaking with GQ, the actor discussed the elements of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and what drew him to the project.
This should go without saying, but if you don’t want to be spoiled…don’t read…
Here’s what Driver said:
“I remember the initial conversations about having things ‘skinned,’ peeling away layers to evolve into other people, and the person Kylo’s pretending to be on the outside is not who he is. He’s a vulnerable kid who doesn’t know where to put his energy, but when he puts his mask on, suddenly, he’s playing a role. JJ had that idea initially and I think Rian took it to the next level. You have, also, the hidden identity of this princess who’s hiding who she really is so she can survive and Kylo Ren and her hiding behind these artifices.”
Kylo Ren’s own motivations aren’t too surprising, as we saw plenty of that in The Force Awakens, and in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It was that quote regarding Rey that was the big shocker.
Is this true? Is Rey actually the princess of someone really big? If so, this would seem to throw out all the big theories revolving around her being a Skywalker, which will be disappointing to some. All the same, we still know very little of what kind of princess she’s supposed to be, and why she ran off, so there’s still a whole lot to uncover, which is nice.
