Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has confirmed that he changed Kylo Ren’s scar in the upcoming eighth chapter of the Skywalker saga.
When the first image, as well as the teaser trailer, revealed Adam Driver back as the son of Han Solo and Princess Leia in the new film, fans were left scratching their heads as they instantly noticed Kylo’s scar in Episode VIII did not match the wound left by Rey after she sliced open his face with the Skywalker lightsaber.
When asked on Twitter, Johnson explained that he changed the placement of the scar itself because he felt it looked goofy.
