Star Wars Explains Kylo Ren’s Reason For Donning The Helmet, Details

Star Wars fans have wondered for a long time as to why Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren wears a mask. While no one has been able to give the precise reason, the official explanation for the mask was revealed, thanks to New York Comic Con.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is all set to hit the theaters this December and fans are eager to see Kylo Ren’s new found power, and his internal struggle. Ever since Kylo Ren’s design was revealed, fans have been questioning about the look. The helmet, unlike that of his grandfather, serves no real purpose. Explanations on why Kylo Ren in Star Wars wore a mask are many. While some believe that Kylo uses the mask as a psychological help to hide from himself, others think that he only wants to imitate Darth Vader, his idol. However, most believed that the mask helps him hide his emotions. However, it turns out that the actual reason for Kylo Ren wearing a mask is much more complicated than it may seem.

In a booth set up at New York Comic Con by Lucasfilm, various accessories were featured from the First Order. Star Wars News Net present at the convention spoke about Kylo’s helmet. Referring to Kylo as “Jedi Killer,” it explained that Kylo wears the helmet to hide his identity. “His helmet was crafted to mask his visage and voice, concealing his identity as he delves further into the power of the Dark Side of the Force.”

Read the detailed description here:

It looks like the mask helps Kylo to hide his true identity as the son of Han Solo and Leia Organa, grandson of Darth Vader, and nephew of Luke Skywalker. This probably means that he is still unsure and struggling to determine whose side he should be on. It could also mean that he wants to avoid comparisons with his lineage.

Until Star Wars: The Last Jedi releases on 13 December 2017, fans can only wonder how much time Kylo will spend wearing the mask in the film. Currently, promotions are ongoing for the film’s release later this year.
