Fans are eager to learn more about Star Wars 8, the follow-up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and while appearing on the Larry King show, Adam Driver alluded to plot points which will explain Kylo Ren drift to the Dark Side away from being a Jedi named Ben Solo.

“Without giving away any spoilers, what’s one aspect about Kylo Ren you’re excited for fans to see in the next film,” King asked.

“I think – maybe this is such a general answer but you know – humanity. Even though it’s very much a blockbuster movie, there was no taking that for granted and that we were forced to be general. There was a lot of plot points that we knew were operating in the first one, that we get to explain more in the second one, to make both of them make sense,” Driver answered, while offering snippets of what to expect from his character.

The Force Awakens‘ ended with a scene featuring Luke Skywalker and Rey prompting fans to yearn for more about Kylo Ren’s fate as he was summoned by Supreme Leader Snoke.

Kylo, who was formerly known as Ben, the son of General Leia Organa and Han Solo turned towards the Dark Side but no one knows what actually prompted him to follow his grandfather Darth Vader aka Anakin Skywalker’s path.

“They do kind of feel socially active to me, and George Lucas originally – a lot of Star Wars was in response to Vietnam and a lot of what I remember talking about with JJ[Abrams] and Rian [Johnson] was this idea of terrorism, and two sides being morally justified to behave however they wanted to get whatever they thought was absolutely correct.”

Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, John Boyega, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis and Oscar Isaac will return to reprise their respective roles.

Star Wars: Episode 8 opens on December 15, 2017.

The next film, Episode 9 will follow in the footsteps the franchise’s traditional Memorial Day release schedule, opening on May 23, 2019.
