Ah, *fuck* it, I’ll cover this. The last couple of days people have been stroking glands about this potential outfit for Rey in The Last Jedi. The reveal, maybe reveal, comes courtesy of Star Wars: Battlefront II pre-order promotional materials.
Rian Johnson took a good, long look at Kylo Ren’s scar in The Force Awakens and was like, “nah” to its placement. Which explains why it looked different in the trailer for The Last Jedi. And cooler, too. I’m down with it. Calm down, nerds!
I like Kylo Ren. I think his petulance, and his whiny nature fits in completely with his character. That said, I also really enjoy the memes he has spawned since his debut. Here is the best of both worlds!
I debated posting this, since it seems like it may be a spoiler. But I considered two things. First: if Mystery Box Abrams himself is revealing it, he doesn’t consider it too integral to his uh, mystery box. Second: pretty much every pop culture website that you’ve probably seen before stumbling over here has revealed this same thing: that Kylo Ren isn’t a Sith. I certainly wasn’t going to be the one to lead the charge, but I also ain’t going to save SpoilerCity by myself.
A new, official image of Kylo Ren rocking what is (I guess) officially being termed a broadsaber. Or maybe Empire is getting liberal. I don’t know. Either way. After the jump. ‘Cause “spoilers” or something.

My body can’t even remotely fucking handle these goodies.
The Marketing Gurus at Disney-Star-Wars corp have dropped an initial slurry of Episode VII character names on our asses. And they’ve done it in a bit of a genius way. The names are revealed on old “trading cards” the company provided to Entertainment Weekly. Take the names for what they are. Both Boyega and Riddle’s character cards don’t feature last names. So there’s something Abrams afoot. (If her last name isn’t Organa or Solo I’ll eat my fucking shoe.) Anyways.
