Actor Adam Driver explained that he wouldn’t mind reprising the role of Kylo Ren in the franchise. Star Wars, but on one condition.
As he again proved in the excellent musical Annette and the historical drama The Last Duel, Adam Driver has everything to establish himself as one of the best actors of his generation (let’s just leave his last role in the high-sounding House of Gucci by Ridley Scott). But despite his roles in Marriage Story, BlacKkKlansman: I infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan, Midnight Special, Silence Where Logan Luckand, the actor mainly made his name and his face known to the general public by joining the franchise Star Wars.
From 2015 to 2019, Adam Driver camped Kylo Ren – the son of Leia and Han Solo and therefore the grandson of Anakin Skywalker – in the Disney trilogy which did more damage than the Death Star. Between the fact that the three films wipe their feet on the previous opus and contradict each other for lack of creative unity, the postlogy has been an ordeal for many fans, but obviously not for the interpreter of Kylo Ren .
Everything to please grandpa
In a recent interview with UNILAD, the actor answered a question from a reporter who asked him whether or not he would be ready to take back a lightsaber:
“No, I’m not against it at all. For me, it’s a medium for filmmakers, so my only concern is working with great filmmakers. Whatever the scale [ndlr : du projet], it was never interesting to me, to a certain extent. There are some interesting things to work on both. I always just follow whoever I’m interested in working with, and see if I’m suitable for the role – things like that. No, I am absolutely not opposed to this idea“
While Kylo Ren’s comeback isn’t on the schedule yet, producer Kathleen Kennedy suggested just days ago that projects dedicated to the characters of the last trilogy Star Wars were in discussion with the Lucasfilm creative team and therefore could very well see the light of day.

And since Lucasfilm still struggles to pull away from the characters in the Skywalker saga after Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which is supposed to complete the story arc once and for all, It’s not impossible that Kylo Ren’s character will be involved again in the franchise, notably in one of the many series in development on Disney +. Luke Skywalker did reappear in season 2 of The Mandalorian, as Country who will be entitled to his own spin-off and Darth Vader who will return in Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Before he may be found at Lucasfilm, Adam Driver will be starring in White noise, the next movie directed by Noah Baumbach.
