Star Wars: The Force Awakens concluded with many mysteries left unsolved, including details on how Luke Skywalker’s efforts to train a new generation of Jedi Knights were derailed by his nephew and apprentice, Kylo Ren. While the reason for the falling out between Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren remains unknown, it appears that Adam Driver took his role seriously enough that he preferred to remain distant from his co-star Mark Hamill. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Driver discussed his approach to playing Kylo Ren and Mark Hamill recounted how the young actor turned down his offer to spend time together before filming on The Last Jedi began.
Driver explained that he approached his role as Kylo Ren the same way he would any other role and finds something about the character he can relate to.
“There’s big personal things that I find about every character, not just in Star Wars, that you have to make as personal as possible.”
Hamill recalled how Driver’s method resulted in the young actor turning down his offer to become acquainted with each other.
“He’s very moody and intense. I remember saying to Adam, ‘I don’t know how you work, or your technique. But, at some point, you were my nephew. I probably bounced you on my knee. I probably babysat for you. There’s that side, and now we’re both estranged from the Skywalker family. All I’m suggesting is, if you’d like, maybe we could go to lunch, we could get together and hang out.'”

8 ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Off Movies We Really Want To See
May the 4th be with you, everyone! Even on May the 8th! With Star Wars weekend in the rear-view mirror, it’s still a great time to kick back, get out your old glow-in-the-dark lightsaber toys and Darth Vader Halloween masks, and pop in those original trilogy DVDs. Maybe even all 8 currently-released films, if you’re up for the challenge (both mental and otherwise). Speaking of which, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just came out on Blu-ray, marking the first home release of many Star Wars spin-off movies to come.
Of these, only one future title has been confirmed – Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, to be released in May of 2018. Beyond that, we know Disney had at least two more planned, and probably more down the line. And why not? The Star Wars universe is so ripe for exploration. There are so many characters we were introduced to in the Saga movies that could easily get their own film. And it doesn’t stop there. The legacy of the Jedi and the Sith go back thousands of years, opening up virtually endless possibilities of story material.
Given this abundance of material just waiting to be tapped into, Heroic Hollywood decided to celebrate the Star Wars holiday by compiling a list of the Star Wars stand-alone movies we’d most like to see. While some of the films on this list are more likely to be developed than others, they each share one unifying factor: they’d all be freakin’ awesome!
