Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – More Of The Trilogy’s Questions Are Answered By Content Other Than The Films

Are you ready for some more aspects of Disney’s Star Wars sequel trilogy that are important enough to highlight but not important enough to put in the film? Well, you’re in luck, as the novelization of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker sheds some light on a few more missing pieces.

In today’s installment of Disney’s, “Oh yeah, we totally forgot to tell you about this,” we learn more about Ben Solo, better known as Kylo Ren. The first bit of information is an exchange between Kylo and Chewbacca. Kylo lets Chewie know that he hasn’t forgotten that the Wookiee shot him toward the end of The Force Awakens. You can check out an excerpt from the novelization below.

“‘I have not forgotten that you shot me,’ Kylo said. That wound had resulted in a defeat at Rey’s hands. Had he been in top fighting form, the scavenger never would have gotten the best of him.”

I still don’t buy it. The guy who effortlessly held a blaster bolt in mid-air at the beginning of The Force Awakens, and minutes before his defeat to Rey, threw the scavenger up against a tree roughly 100 feet in the air. I just don’t think the wound, even though it was from Chewie’s crossbow, would have hindered a Force user as powerful as Kylo had shown to be. Not comparing Kylo to Master Yoda, but even on a smaller scale, he should have been able to use the Force to alleviate his pain, much in the way Yoda used it to drop his cane and become much more agile when necessary.

And now for Kylo’s now-famous lie to Rey, concerning her parents. While Kylo did lie to Rey, it wasn’t all his fault as the Force visions he had seen weren’t always clear. Check it out down below.

“He’d glimpsed her parents in a vision, a poor, frightened couple eking out a meager existence, surviving on the edge of desperation. He hadn’t been lying when he’d told her they were nothing, nobodies. But Force visions were filled with tricky truths and potential realities. Maybe he had missed something. Bringing all the power of the Force to bear, Kylo Ren demanded, ‘Who is she?’ The rotting remnant of Emperor Palpatine smiled.”

Whether Kylo knew he was lying to Rey or not, I never believed what he had to say. I always felt Rey had to be somebody, she had to have something in her past to explain her abilities.
