The Star Wars Book – Ben Solo

So I received my copy of The Star Wars Book today by Pablo Hildalgo and others and as I was quickly skimming through it, I noticed at the bottom of each character page there is a section that says “Status Report” as you can see below:

“Converted to the light side and deceased” is what it says for Ben Solo. For other characters that also died such as Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, it simply says “One with the Force”. So this means and confirms that Ben Solo did not become one with the force as many fans thought. If he did, it would have stated that there.

Now I think this is because Ben was never taught how to do that and when he faded at the end of The Rise of Skywalker, that was just the light shining on him once more because he had converted back to the light side of the force and was redeemed. It is a “bluish” light or light that has a blue tint to it so that’s most likely why so many fans thought he had become one with the force:

So that is it, he never became one with the force which means there is absolutely no way that he can come back as a force ghost. And that is going to make a lot of fans very unhappy. As for me, I am okay with this as much as I love Ben’s story, I am kinda over that whole thing now. I’ve given myself enough time to grieve the loss of the characters I adored and I am happy to say that I am okay with this.

Although it does irk me that after going back to the light and even his mother becoming one with the force, they didn’t or couldn’t do that for Ben. If anything, that is the only part that makes me feel a little annoyed at the writers. But on the flip side of that, my understanding is that Ben was never supposed to be redeemed, at least not in Colin Trevorrow’s version. And to be honest, I would have much preferred that ending than the one we got but I am okay with it, really.

So, what do you think about any of this my Star Wars friends? Do you think it was right the way Ben’s end was written? Do you think it could have been better?

Let me know in the comments and stay safe out there and I’ll see you tomorrow!

The Star Wars Book – You Should Get This Book!

Out of all of the many books I’ve looked at and bought over the years, this book called simply “The Star Wars Book” seems like the one book every star wars fan should consider owning. Why? Let me show you, dear star wars readers:

It explains a whole lot about The Rise of Skywalker including Ben Solo’s link to Rey, his death and Leia

Amid the wreckage of the second Death Star on Kef Bir, Kylo Ren feels the Force presence of his mother, who reminds him of the goodness still within him. Sensing his distraction, Rey strikes a killing blow with her lightsaber. Immediately horrified by her actions and the idea that she may be falling to the dark side, Rey uses the Force to restore him. Meanwhile, on Ajan Kloss, the effort of reaching out to her son is too much for Leia’s mortal body. She dies but doesn’t pass into the Force yet:

In a pivotal turn of events, Kylo faces the memory of his deceased father. Moved by the love of his parents and Rey’s compassion, he hurls his unstable, red lightsaber into the ocean, renouncing darkness and becoming Ben Solo once more. His final act is to head to Exegol to help Rey face the Emperor. Together, the two defeat the Sith Lord. The effort drains Rey. Without hesitation, Ben transfers his life force to her, resurrecting her and sacrificing himself: redeemed at last.
