A ‘Ben Solo’ Project is in Development at Lucas Films

It’s hard to imagine Lucasfilm will allow Ben Solo to stay dead for long. The move made little narrative sense in Episode IX and there’s a great deal of potential for stories with character as he would come to grips with his misdeeds and work towards atonement. For all we know, this project could be the first of many that further develop the Grandson of Skywalker. Who knows, perhaps someday Adam Driver will return to help bring Ben Solo back to life…

Rumor:Corey Van Dyke of Kessel Run Transmissions shared on Twitter that Lucasfilm is looking to further develop the character Ben Solo

Van Dyke also speculates that the project in question may be animated, as there’s been no word on Adam Driver’s involvement:

The scooper noted that Lucasfilm is aware of Ben Solo’s popularity and will continue to develop the fan-favorite:

Jordan Maison later clarified that the rumored project could take place prior to The Force Awakens:

Fans of Kylo Ren/Ben Solo will undoubtedly be thrilled by this news, however vague it may be. It’s important to note that, if accurate, the story will begin prior to Solo’s fall to the dark side, making it unlikely that we’ll see a retcon of the redeemed character’s death in the project. That’s not to say that it won’t happen at some point, and if done appropriately that move would be met with mass approval
