Adam Driver may reprise his role as Kylo Ren in the Star Wars universe. Although nothing is confirmed, when Variety asked director Shawn Levy about Driver appearing in his upcoming Star Wars movie, set before 2015’s The Force Awakens, he dodged the question. “Your words, not mine!” Levy said. “As you know, Adam is a buddy, and I’ve always been a huge fan of Kylo Ren. But no comment,” he added.

Levy’s Star Wars movie was announced in November 2022. The director was expected to begin work on the project once he had fulfilled his obligations to Marvel Studios’ Deadpool 3 and the fifth final season of Stranger Things. Levy previously expressed his commitment to the Star Wars movie, saying, “I love that world, and it is a privilege to get to join that galaxy.

Adam Driver joined the Star Wars galaxy as Kylo Ren in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, which was produced by Lucasfilm and distributed by Walt Disney Studios. He was cast as the film’s primary antagonist after director J.J. Abrams, who helmed Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens in 2015, recognized Driver’s talent.

Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is the son of Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and is revealed to be a member of the First Order, the successor to the Galactic Empire. He is also a Force user, trained in the ways of the dark side by Supreme Leader Snoke. His real name is Ben Solo, and his internal struggle with the light and dark sides of the Force is a central theme of the character.

As the film progresses, the story delves deeper into Ren’s character, exploring his past and the reasons for his turning to the dark side.
