Editorial/Speculation – The Lost Prince of Alderaan: The Fall and Redemption of Ben Solo, Part One


Whatever your opinions of Kylo Ren, it’s hard to argue that his story is not one the more compelling facets of the sequel trilogy. The heir apparent to the Skywalker bloodline and all the baggage that comes with it, I wasn’t terribly shocked when Snoke pronounced him the son of Han Solo during my first viewing of The Force Awakens. It almost makes more sense for these Skywalkers to take a walk down the dark side than not. What intrigues most people about the terrible metamorphose of Ben Solo to Kylo Ren are the dueling prospects he will either die a villain or find the redemption his grandfather did (which also begs: is that at his death or a new beginning?). This is a question that has divided fans, stirred heated discussions, and caused ‘shipping’ of other characters that could be a catalyst to this redemption. It’s a question I’ve thought an awful lot about and what will follow is strictly an examination of the questions I’ve asked myself and some potential answers. This is entirely speculation on my part and completely my opinion of a POSSIBLE plot-point in Episode IX. It’s not a “hot-take” and in no way is it meant to disregard or disrespect other views. If anything, I hope it gets people to think outside of the “Will Rey redeem him or will Luke?”-box, because I honestly believe there is only one person who can save Ben Solo: Leia Organa.

Star Wars Battlefront II Clone Wars Voice Actors Announced

Since its initial release in fall of 2017, Electronic Art’s Star Wars Battlefront II has steadily added additional content for  players to enjoy. While heavily maligned at launch due to playable content, progression systems, and the loot box controversy, Battlefront II has since taken great strides to provide players and fans with the ultimate Star Wars gaming experience. Previous updates brought The Last Jedi and Han Solo seasons into the mix as well as the fan favorite Ewok Hunt game mode. Electronic Arts previously announced during EA Play this year that Battlefront II would be heading back to the Clone Wars era and have since provided us with an updated road map for October and announced the voice actors for the heroes and villains included in the new content.
