Director Rian Johnson explains why Kylo Ren’s scar is different in Star Wars: The Last Jedi
When the trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi premiered at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida this past weekend, some fans noticed that Kylo Ren’s (Adam Driver) scar was in a different place. Today on Twitter, director Rian Johnson explained why that is, after a fan asked him about it.
@origonalname113 @mutlubulutlar @StarWarsNewsNet @TheLastKylo It was my decision to slightly adjust it, and that was my justification. It honestly looked goofy running straight up the bridge of his nose

As you can see, Johnson thought the other scar looked “goofy” where it was. He said, “It was my decision to slightly adjust it, and that was my justification. It honestly looked goofy running straight up the bridge of his nose.”
Here is a comparison of the scars:
The scar has very clearly moved from the middle of his forehead in The Force Awakens to across his eyebrow in The Last Jedi trailer. It also appears to have been some time since that scar was received.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is written and directed by Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper) and continues the storylines introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, welcoming back cast members Mark Hamill, the late Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis. New cast members will include Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro, Academy Award nominee Laura Dern, and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran.
The sequel is produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman and executive produced by J.J. Abrams, Jason McGatlin, and Tom Karnowski. Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in regular and IMAX theaters on December 15, 2017.
