If you have seen “The Force Awakens” then I’m sure you are definitely familiar with what happened to Han Solo. The space smuggler played by Harrison Ford was last seen together with his son Ben Solo a.k.a Kylo Ren, having a little father and son moment in an eerily familiar scene. It was beautiful, almost making you feel sorry for Kylo for a moment - until he pushed his lightsaber through his father’s body; eventually killing him. Back then, the movie didn’t actually show us much of the effects of the incident on the First Order Commander. In the upcoming Episode 8, it looks like we are finally going to see its toll on him.

The Last Jedi: How did Kylo Ren feel after killing Han Solo?

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" Director Rian Johnson recently talked to Entertainment Weekly and shared his plans about the major players of Episode 8.

According to the interview, we are finally going to see more of the aftermath of the incident on Kylo Ren himself.

“He’s definitely been knocked off base,” said Johnson in the interview. Sure, his defeat with Rey in the last moments of the movie was pretty infuriating, but nothing is more scarring for him than his iconic murder of Han Solo in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." “How has he dealt with that in his head? Where is he at in terms of that act and what does that mean for him?” added Johnson. The director did not promise to answer this question in the movie. However, it gives us some hope that we will see a lot of major character development scenes for Kylo Ren in Episode 8. This is something we are all probably looking forward to.

Han Solo returns in The Last Jedi—In a way.

What about Han Solo? His death will surely not be the end of his character, right?

If you're familiar with the entirety of the "Star Wars" franchise, character deaths are reasons to attain the ethereal form known as Force Ghost.

Despite not being a Jedi and having the ability to make a Force Ghost of himself, I thought that Solo's influence in the characters makes him have that same ability in a way.

To confirm my hopes for "The Last Jedi," Johnson said that Solo will indeed make a comeback to the series, "figuratively." In the upcoming Episode 8, the director declared that Solo’s ghost will definitely be present throughout the film. He did not say as a force ghost, but as a presence that we will surely see in the movie.

Haunting Kylo? Visiting Leia? Urging Luke to come out of his cave maybe? We still don’t know. But what we can truly say about all of this is that "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" is a movie we won’t truly miss. #Star Wars The Last Jedi #last jedi spoilers #star wars news
