The Rise of Skywalker Will Explore the Rey-Kylo Ren Relationship

Since the first time they shared the screen together, there was a certain tension between Rey and Kylo Ren. The upcoming Star Wars movie will finally answer to the many unsolved questions about the relationship of the Force-sensitive duo. Speaking to Empire, The Rise Of Skywalker co-writer Chris Terrio revealed that the upcoming movie will deepen even further the complex bond between the two.

“We’ve tried to pick up that complicated relationship that really has been present ever since the interrogation in Episode VII,” Terrio said. “When Ren takes off his mask, there’s a nakedness about him with Rey that he doesn’t express to anyone else. Rian [Johnson] developed that in fascinating ways and we’ve been able to develop it even further.”

Is Terrio perhaps hinting a possible love affair between the two? It’s too early to say, but there are a lot of fans who dream of a “Reylo” coupling.

Speaking of The Last Jedi, director J.J. Abrams said to Empire that things have gone in a completely different direction, than they would had he helmed that movie. But he’s fine with that.

“If I had done VIII, I would have done things differently, just as Rian would have done things differently if he had done VII,” he stated. “But having worked on television series, I was accustomed to creating stories and characters that then were run by other people. If you’re willing to walk away from the thing that you created and you believe it’s in trustworthy hands, you have to accept that some of the decisions being made are not gonna be the same that you would make. And if you come back into it, you have to honor what’s been done.”
