*THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI*
In previous films, it has been possible to communicate with another person via the Force, but this time Rian Johnson took it a bit further, and Rey and Kylo Ren were actually able to see each other and their surroundings.
In one of those scenes, Kylo Ren was shirtless, and many fans are wondering if there was a specific reason for that, Star Wars: The Last Jedi co-sound supervisor, Ren Klyce recently spoke with The Huffington Post, and gave some clarification on the idea behind the shirtless Kylo Ren:
“The way in which [director Rian Johnson] decided to create the Force connection by just simply doing vertical cuts without using any CG … it’s pure simplicity in terms of filmmaking with visual cuts. We cut to her side; we cut to Kylo Ren; we cut to her; and back and forth. That was important to establish what she was actually seeing. Was she hearing his voice or seeing his face or just his eyes? And so that [shirtless scene] is to inform the audience, ‘Oh, she can see his body.’”
While I still have overall mixed feelings on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, one thing I did enjoy about the film was the Force connection that Kylo and Rey had together.
I find this new ability an acceptable progression in the characters’ use of Force. Is that all it is, though, or do Rey and Kylo Ren have a deeper connection? After all, by the end of the film, it still seemed clear that their minds were melded, even after Snoke’s death.
