For my first Character Study, I have chosen the character of Kylo Ren, from the Star Wars sequel trilogy. With the clock to the final film already counting down – I wanted to lay out a theory and an analysis about Darth Vader’s grandson, one that states that he, and not Rey, could be essentially the sequel trilogy’s true protagonist – and if you watch the sequel trilogy with that perspective – it can actually give you a much better viewing experience.
