There’s one scene in Star Wars: The Force Awakens that made audiences from Orlando to Osaka gasp and scream. If you’ve seen the movie, you know the scene. If you haven’t seen the movie, remedy that situation and then come back read this article. You’ve been warned.
When Harrison Ford’s Han Solo tries to save his son Ben a.k.a. Kylo Ren, (Adam Driver,) it doesn’t end well. In the painful scene, Ren ends up committing patricide via light saber and Han Solo became one of the 91 characters who died in Star Wars.
It was a heartbreaking and audience members left the theater searching for answers and turning to director J.J. Abrams with their lingering questions. Was Ren simply toying with his father’s emotions and actually planned to kill him from the moment he laid eyes on him? In a USA Today clip from the forthcoming 3D collector’s edition of The Force Awakens, Abrams finally answers that question.
Abrams apparently tried to warn the audience with some visual clues to prepare them for the outcome of the meeting between father and son.
Remember that when Star Wars: Episode VIII hits theaters in December 2017.
