Discussion The Knights of Ren in Episode 9

Discussion in 'Star Wars: Episode IX - Spoilers Allowed' started by dlbates, Dec 13, 2017.


Do you believe we will see the Knights of Ren in the movies beyond the flashback from TFA?

  1. They will play a large roll in IX

  2. They will be seen in IX but only briefly, and possibly in another flashback

  3. They will not be seen, but will be mentioned in IX

  4. We have heard the last of the Knights of Ren. Not even a mention in IX.

Results are only viewable after voting.

    Why does only Kylo have a lightsaber? Are all of the Knights Lukes ex-students or are there other members too? Are they all force sensitive?

    I don't have much hope we will see them in IX. I might be pleasantly surprised though..

    If they're in the film, they'd be one of my most anticipated elements for sure.

    I think they'll be there... It would be lame if they weren't.

    I'm guessing they played a part in VIII but we don't know it yet. Episode VIII's crawl hinted at a possibility that they might have. Maybe Snoke deployed them when he initiated the take over of the New Republic star systems?

    Well, anyway...

    I think if Kylo Ren is meant to be redeemed in IX, which I think he will because there's no way the Skywalker bloodline dies here, then there needs to be another antagonist or antagonists to cause that. The Knights of Ren could be a threat to him, especially knowing that Kylo had killed their ruler, who like their master before had seen as divine and wise. Maybe even sensing Kylo's confliction, it's possible one of them sees an opportunity to seize the supreme leadership for himself and convinces the others to follow him instead. And not wearing the helmet anymore could be another reason the Knights of Ren no longer see their master as one of them, also. There could be several reasons why they turn on him, and could be how and why Ben Solo redeems himself in the end. I'm assuming this is what was saved for the last film, so that the next director had a way to close out the trilogy. I don't know.

    Whatever the case may be, there are loads of possibilities. I just hope they use the KOR in some capacity. It would just be another big wasted opportunity that had been setup in The Force Awakens.

    They can't really use the Porgs, Phasma, BB-9E, Poe's X-Wing, Snoke, the Praetorian Guards, etc. like they did in TLJ, I wouldn't be surprised if the Knights will be the main thing driving the advertising in EPIX.
