There wasn’t much of it because it’s a bullshit story line to make Kylo Ren more sympathetic.

Vader didn’t blow up Alderaan, in the first movie he was the secondary villain. Everything was decided by Tarkin.

I’m not saying he’s a horrible villain, he’s an underdeveloped villain and instead of actually putting in the work to write him as one they just turned him into what the fans wanted.

yeah i get what you mean

i feel like literally ever franchise has tanked in terms of story and characters bc of social media and the ppl in charge being aware of what fans want/pandering to them

marvel does ok bc their movies are so formulaic and none of the characters are interesting anyway lol

Lmaaaooo I'm 100% sure he think I'm a bitch. Even when I have a convo where I'm like "brother it's so exciting that you're going to have your own place soon. If you wanna pet cause I remember that you said that you wanted a cat you can try fostering first" and just zero reaction lol.

"planned a back story" so you mean he did what actors are supposed to do? Actors are supposed to have an idea of their character fully fleshed out. Why would he think it would end up in the film? It's just supposed to help you do your job better?

RIGHT?! I do community theatre and we all do this and like we aren't getting paid. There's no way anything I come up with is making it to the stage but fuck if I don't know that she got drunk off wine coolers, because she can't handle anything harder, before hooking up with the high school quarterback which is how she ended up pregnant.
You just make this stuff up to make it feel more real. It's so pretentious of him to think his imagination back story would end up in the billion dollar franchise.

I'm not seeing where Adam complained about it not being in the movie, he just talked to Lev about what he thought Kylo's childhood was like.
