Kylo Ren is Not a Sith in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

Adam Driver’s Character

In the new issue of Empire Magazine, director J.J. Abrams confirms that Adam Driver’s character Kylo Ren “is not a Sith.”

“Kylo Ren is not a Sith. He works under Supreme Leader Snoke, who is a powerful figure on the Dark Side of the Force.”

Snoke is the gravely voice narrating the first trailer – a performance-captured digital character, played by Andy Serkis. Abrams revealed earlier this month that lightsaber-wielding Kylo Ren belongs to a mysterious group called The Knights of Ren. According to the filmmaker:

“That all came out of conversations about what would have happened if the Nazis all went to Argentina but then started working together again? What could be born of that? Could The First Order exist as a group that actually admired The Empire? Could the work of The Empire be seen as unfulfilled? And could Vader be a martyr? Could there be a need to see through what didn’t get done?”

Ok, so the badass is not a Sith, he’s a Nazi. Lol.
