Star Wars fans tend to be tweeting numerous hashtags begging Disney to bring Ben back, including #BenSoloDeservesBetter and #BringBenSoloBack.

“That Kylo Ren comic is such a slap in the face,” added another Twitter user. “They made us love a personality who was simply mistreated and controlled since he had been in the mother’s uterus after which discarded him without any person worrying all about him or sobbing [over] their death.”

Many other fans have the in an identical way since these Twitter users. They hate how Ben died when you look at the movie after he redeemed himself.

Despite lover needs, the reason why won’t Adam Driver be reprising their part as Ben Solo?

A few other actors in The Rise of Skywalker left their particular reactions open-ended towards the risk of time for Star Wars. However, Driver’s response is an absolute, “No.” If Ben Solo previously comes back in a film or television show, it’s going to be another type of star.

Would other primary figures from ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ reprise their particular part if supplied the ability?

It’s the top concern on everyone’s’ minds, so various news outlets talked to Ridley, Boyega, and Isaac about time for Star Wars into the future. 

“I can’t actually imagine it right now,” Ridley informed Vulture. “Right now, it feels like a really nice full stop on the Skywalker series.” 

It seems like Rey won’t be time for Star Wars when shortly. What about Boyega and Isaac?

“You ain’t going to Disney Plus me!” Boyega told Variety with a laugh. 

Finn won’t be in a Disney+ spin-off, but he performed keep the door open for a go back to the top display screen. Boyega accepted to Variety which he is happy to do another movie if both Ridley and Isaac had been involved. 

“[I’m] pleased and experiencing satisfied that the duty is total,” Isaac stated whenever addressing reporters from Variety. “So, I can’t imagine what it would be that would make me want to redo this thing or revisit it.”

The general sensation from all four associated with the primary figures in The Rise of Skywalker is the fact that tale is total. Not one feels the necessity to reprise their particular functions, at the least maybe not any time in the future.

For today, followers will need to be satisfied with rewatching the sequel trilogy to have their particular fill of Ben, Rey, Finn, and Poe. Be certain when you view it though which you forget that Driver played Kylo.
