JJ Abrams revealed more details about “Kylo Ren”, a villain in the upcoming Star Wars movie “The Force Awakens”.

“The movie explains the origins of the mask and where it’s from, but the design was meant to be a nod to the Vader mask,” Abrams tells EW. “[Ren] is well aware of what’s come before, and that’s very much a part of the story of the film.”

As for his weapon of choice, Abrams can confirm what many suspected: it’s a tool he crafted all by his lonesome. “The lightsaber is something that he built himself, and is as dangerous and as fierce and as ragged as the character,” Abrams says.

“He is a character who came to the name Kylo Ren when he joined a group called the Knights of Ren,” Abrams says.

“I’ve written four Star Wars movies now, and there’s never been a character quite like the one that Adam plays. I think you’re going to see something that’s brand new to the saga.” Says Lawrence Kasdan.
