So with this enigmatic addition to the Star Wars Universe, your guess is as good as ours. With a cross-hilt red lightsaber, we are pretty much all agree that this is the new antagonist of Episode VII. He was introduced on November 28, 2014 in the Disney Trailer of Star Wars Episode VII, The Force Awakens. Seen in both teaser trailers released by Disney, this character is assured a large amount of screen time. As with any popular franchise continuation, there will be speculation to all of the new characters motivations and backstory. So far it has been confirmed is that he allies himself with the rebooted stormtroopers and that he is, in fact, male. Additional rumors have run rampant. Here at Cosplay Savvy we prescribe to the rumor that he is a fallen apprentice to Luke that is obsessed with the history of Darth Vader. With the revelation that his name is Kylo with the Ren addition coming from his affiliation with the “Knights of Ren” fans are left not-so-patiently waiting to hear more about this sith-like villain. Taking place 30 years after the infamous battle between Luke and Darth Vader, the galaxy has been left in a void without the Sith Lord Sidious and the Darth Lord Vader.
Below, we have compiled a preliminary Kylo Ren Costume guide from the still frames gathered from the clips that have been released by Disney Studios.
