The highly anticipated film, Star Wars: Episode 8 is likely to showcase protagonist Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and Rey (Daisy Ridley) falling in love with each other. Star Wars: The Force Awakens novelization teases this theory.

In his latest video, star wars expert Mike Zeroh reveals this theory. He says that ever since the force awakens has released, speculations are rife about a love interest for Rey. Will it be Finn, Poe, Kylo Ren or somebody else? This has not been revealed yet.

As star wars fans are rolling into Star Wars: Episode 8, there is bound to be a love interest for Rey. Read to know why Kylo Ren has that potential to fall in love with Rey.

John Boyega Teases Love Interest In Star Wars: Episode 8

John Boyega has been questioned about the romance in the last jedi. As per aforementioned source, to this Boyega replies, “It’s going to be something that you don’t expect. Something that is going to be completely unexpected!” Boyega has not taken Ren’s name in his reply. But that sounds like it could be Kylo Ren.

Kylo Ren’s life is completely manipulated by Snoke. He stays away from his parents and fights against them. He has even killed his father in the last film. When Ren meets Rey, his evil feelings for the light side of the force perhaps declines. And he falls in love with her.

Theory Drawn From Star Wars: The Force Awakens Novelization

Zeroh reads out a part of the force awakens novelization where a potential romance for Kylo is teased. In the book, Snoke tells Ren, “You have compassion for her.” Ren declines this and says that he has no compassion for the enemy of the First Order.

But Snoke is not happy with the response of Ren. He reveals to Ren that his problem” is not her strength that is making him fail, it is his weakness.” Now the narrator says, “The rebuke hurt. But Ren didn’t show it,” report Express UK. It looks like Snoke has sensed something about Ren. And the latter has denied his true feelings for a reason.

Body Language Of Ren Toward Rey

Kylo Ren is seen in some scenes behaving in a gentle manner toward Rey. Noticeably is the scene when he picks her up on Takodana, aboard the ship, like a princess. Ren might be caring for Rey but is not able to express those feelings yet. If he meets Rey on Ahch-To, then a scene between the two revealing their feelings can be seen.

This almost confirms that in Star Wars: Episode 8 fans will get to watch an interesting romantic story. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to hit the theaters on Dec.15, 2017.
