Kylo Ren Nearly Had A Much Different Look For ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

Kylo Ren Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The newly released concept art book The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi continues to be a gold mine for Star Wars related speculation. A new picture has hit the internet that shows a big change to the physical appearance of the character of Kylo Ren.

Whereas Adam Driver rocked the long emo hairstyle in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, concept art from The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi shows that Disney was kicking around the idea of making him bald for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. His trademark black hoodie is also absent having been replaced by a cape.

I’m not too sure about this look personally. Maybe it’s just because I’ve never seen Adam Driver minus his usual long, shaggy hair (Logan Lucky, Silence, While We’re Young) but I don’t think it fits him. Kylo as a character is meant to be young and angsty and the shaggy look fits that type of personality better.

Also from The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi we find alternate designs for the Porgs. Instead of being mostly white and brown, the Porgs are brightly colored. Again, I think Disney made the right call with the design they went with in the film.

While the internet community continues to devour itself over their opinions of the highly divisive Star Wars Episode VIII, we here at ScreenGeek will continue to bring you all the latest stories and rumors about the franchise.
