Empire magazine today released the following quotes from J.J. Abrams regarding Kylo Ren, Supreme Leader Snoke and he formation of The First Order.
Kylo Ren and Supreme Leader Snoke:
“Kylo Ren is not a Sith,” confirms JJ Abrams in the new issue of Empire. “He works under Supreme Leader Snoke, who is a powerful figure on the Dark Side of the Force.”
The First Order:
“That all came out of conversations about what would have happened if the Nazis all went to Argentina but then started working together again?’” Abrams reveals. “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?”
Hopefully they aren’t planning on cloning Anakin, a la The Boys from Brazil…
