It’s looking like Kylo Ren will be getting an update to his wardrobe next year. As MakingStarWars.Net reports:
“According to sources, Kylo Ren is wearing a Darth Vader cape in ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII.’ The cape is said to be like the one Darth Vader wears in ‘The Empire Strikes Back/Return of the Jedi.’ However, the cape does not have the same chain clasp. It is not entirely clear if this cape is one Kylo made to resemble that of his grandfather’s or if he actually procured one of Darth Vader’s capes that probably fell into the hands of collectors in the Star Wars galaxy.”
Yup, that’s right. Kylo Ren might just be turning up to Episode VIII‘s proceedings in a shiny (old?) Darth Vader cape — something that has the potential to be absolutely glorious…or a little bit weird. With Adam Driver’s performance (and The Force Awakens’ fantastic costume-designers) having carried the improbably charismatic villain this far, though, it’s surely tempting to believe that the addition of his grandfather’s cape will make him even more interesting.
