It seems that once Star Wars had something very different in mind for Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren as newly released concept art shows a different mask and an overall more unsettling aesthetic for the villain.
The image in question came from the official Star Wars Instagram account. In the caption, it is explained that the image is, in fact, an early version of Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren. The image shows Kylo Ren in a mask that isn’t too different from Darth Vaders, with red eyes and with the chin area further out from the rest of the face. In addition, his chest also seems to be modified with some kind of robot upgrades as does his right hand. The art also seems to show Kylo Ren talking to Darth Vader’s helmet.

From the look of things, it looks like the original look for Kylo Ren was designed to give an entire generation of children nightmares!

‘Aladdin’ Images Show Vibrant New Look At Naomi Scott As Jasmine
The latest Aladdin images showoff Jasmine's (Naomi Scott) incredible wardrobe.
Entertainment Weekly has revealed some brand new photos from Disney's upcoming live-action remake of their animated classic, Aladdin. This collection of photos focuses on Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and her vibrant wardrobe collection.
Naomi Scott spoke to EW about Jasmine's colorful wardrobe choices in Aladdin and how it plays a part in her character, the world and the journey she goes through:
"The main conversation is structure versus freedom that I think is obviously is the metaphor for her journey as a character. If she’s wearing something that’s structured and beautiful, it can’t just be the sake of it looking great, it needs to be connected to the story."
EW reports that there are around 10 new outfits that Naomi Scott will don as Jasmine in the film, giving her the opportunity to showcase her beauty as the beloved princess as Aladdin (Mena Massoud) attempts to woo her.
Aladdin costume designer Michael Wilkinson discussed the approach taken to bringing the new costumes to life in live-action form:
"When you’re designing the costumes for a live action film that’s based on animation, there’s an opportunity to take these characters and give them literally more depth and details, really think about them as fully-fleshed people with complex psychologies and interesting personalities, so it was wonderful to explore who Jasmine really was and be able to express that through her many costumes in the film."
