Director Rian Johnson Explains Why He Moved Kylo Ren’s Scar In ‘The Last Jedi’

While attending Star Wars Celebration 2017 in Orlando, Florida, a fan asked The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson why he chose to slightly adjust the location of Kylo Ren’s face scar.

“It was my decision to slightly adjust it, and that was my justification. It honestly looked goofy running straight up the bridge of his nose.”

And with that, a whole population of fanboys cried out in terror!

I kid, I kid – it’s easy to understand why Johnson chose to do this, and ultimately it has no effect on Ren’s role in the slightest.


Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Daisey Ridley, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Benicio Del Toro, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Kelly Marie Tran, Domhnall Gleeson, and Lupita Nyong’O.

The next chapter in the Skywalker saga hits theaters on December 15.
