Will Ben Solo follow his grandfather’s example and renounce the Dark Side in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker? We won’t find out until December, but an upcoming Star Wars novel shows how Kylo Ren’s redemption is possible.
StarWars.com published an excerpt from author Rebecca Roanhorse’s upcoming novel Star Wars: Resistance Reborn. Set shortly after the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Resistance Reborn explores how General Leia, Rey and the handful of surviving Resistance members begin the process of rebuilding. One particularly noteworthy passage shows Leia reflecting on her son and the possibility of redemption. As Leia explains, Ben can only be saved if he specifically chooses to be saved.
