Kanata’s Castle #35: Redeeming Ren?

by Kanata's Castle

Ever ask yourself, “is Kylo Ren worthy of redemption?” Ahem, better yet, RENdemption? Well, in this episode of Kanata’s Castle, Becca, and Devon get back into the heavy as they discuss whether or not young Solo is redeemable. So, come on! Grab a frothy mug of Luke’s favorite green-milk and hit that play button.

Redemption is a continuous theme in Star Wars. But, is that trope getting old? Is it time for something new? After all, the Star Wars stories have evolved with the sequel trilogy, so maybe Kylo Ren is right? It’s time to let old things die. Kill the past. To redeem or not to redeem, that is the question.
