STAR WARS NEWS: JJ Abrams Reveals More The Force Awakens Secrets

By Muuka Muyumba

As we impatiently await the release of Thursday’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens special issue of Empire Magazine, some of the galleys have been previewed and some interesting revelations have come out.

Abrams shared some insight into his inspiration for the First Order, the new big bad of the Star Wars galaxy. He noted that the First Order “…came out of conversations about what would have happened if the Nazis all went to Argentina but then started working together again?’ What could be born of that? Could The First Order exist as a group that actually admired The Empire? Could the work of The Empire be seen as unfulfilled? And could Vader be a martyr? Could there be a need to see through what didn’t get done?”

Empire then asked about the new star of the upcoming blockbuster, Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren, who is still shrouded in much mystery for his role in The Force Awakens. Abrams revealed that Ren works for Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) and his obsession with the Dark Side doesn’t come from his attention to The Sith. In fact, Abrams said that Ren isn’t a Sith at all, signalling the possibility that he may be an Inquisitor who hunts for Jedi under the First Order.

Tune in Thursday for even more revelations from the upcoming revival of the Star Wars franchise.
