EW: Star Wars’ big bad guy, Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren, is a total Darth Vader stan


This week’s Entertainment Weekly is a fall/winter preview film preview, with Star Wars: The Force Awakens on the cover. And for sure, that’s easily the most anticipated film of the year. I imagine it will make crazy money and be #1 for weeks and weeks. EW not only put Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren on the cover, they also have an exclusive photo slideshow – go here to see. I’m including some of the photos in this post. Here’s some of the other info we’re getting:

EW’s first preview article. It’s such a nerd-troll, it’s not even funny – go here to read. EW doesn’t even answer their own questions!!

JJ Abrams talks about why he did Star Wars. Basically, he wanted to learn more about Luke Skywalker and who he is and was and what motivates him. Abrams also says that he just reached a point where he would have hated himself if he didn’t sign on.

More information about Kylo Ren. Kylo Ren seems to be the big bad guy, maybe. He’s played by Adam Driver. Kylo is obsessed with the late Darth Vader and even his mask is a reference to Vader. Kylo also has a big squad of stormtroopers.

Stars Wars at Disney’s D23 convention this weekend. JJ Abrams has already said that fans are not going to get a new trailer at the Disney convention, so too bad, NERDS. You’ll just have to wait!

This is Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, a warrior for The First Order (the bad guys). BOSS.

Domhnall Gleeson also plays a baddie. He’s supposed to be power-hungry and cruel.




Daisy Ridley and some stuff.

    OMG, tomorrow can’t get here fast enough when my copy of EW will be in the mail! Soooooooo excited for the new SW movie(s) to come out! I’m feeling like a kid again!

  2. Mia4S says:

    Wow Domhall Gleesen looks really handsome! Now I’m hoping he lives through the movie.

    I am curious as to which of the new actors is related to the old characters. Has to be someone? My money is on the girl or Adam Driver’s character. Having it be Driver could be a good twist.

      Yes thou the whole outfit gives me an SS vibe but i guess that’s on purpose.

      Hmm, interesting but my money’s on the girl being Han and Leia’s daughter – Driver’s character seems like he could be a Jedi gone bad.

    • EN says:

      He is so good looking, but sadly not a very good actor. I keep wanting to like him, but in everything I’ve seen him he is just average, solid but average.

    • Em' says:

      That’s what I came to say : Domhnall is hot as f-ck in this pic.

      In the first 3 Star WARS, the Empire’s officers suits also had a strong SS vibe

    Excited. Excited. Excited. Excited. Excited.

    He looks very scary ( Adam D.)

    I don’t care about Adam Driver, or the new Star Wars (I have yet to watch the old ones), so I clicked just because I felt sorry that a thread about anything more substantial than the Kadashians has only 9 comments. Now I’m glad I did since you sneaked in Domhnall Gleeson. You should have put him in the title and in the tags – he’s no Fassbender, but I know many CB’s care about him.

    A big HONK for Domhnall Gleeson, he’s great and he looks great in this picture.
