Matt Dallas, the Editor-in-Chief of Fanatic Media, has finally entered The Rise of Skywalker leak game. Although hesitant, he has heard some things from a Lucasfilm employee who is working on the latest installment (and last) in the Skywalker Saga and reveals Kylo Ren’s fate in The Rise of Skywalker. In a concise video, he states that Lucasfilm is very much aware of the backlash caused by The Last Jedi. Beware: the rest of this post contains spoilers for The Rise of Skywalker. Read at your own risk.

Matt Dallas reveals that Kylo Ren/Ben Solo’s story closely resembles Jacen Solo, from the original novels. He turns to the dark side at one point and has a final duel with his twin sister, Jaina. He turns back to the light at the last moment, but Jaina doesn’t believe him and kills him. In the end, he does turn back and is redeemed in his dying moments. It is said that the same happens to Ben. Rey and Kylo have a final confrontation and Ben turns back to the light, but Rey doesn’t believe him and kills him once and for all. This lines up with what we have heard with our leaks and if Rey turns out to be Ben’s sister, as we have been told, this lines up perfectly. Jacen and Jaina have always been two of the best characters from the original novels and JJ is very much aware of the original EU and is incorporating aspects of it into The Rise of Skywalker.

Regardless of whether or not this is true, we will find out on December 20 when the film opens in theaters!
