We all saw the First Force Awakens trailer back in 2014 during the Thanksgiving weekend, and we saw a new Sith named Kylo Ren. We all thought he was a Sith, but The First Order and Kylo Ren is inspired by the Nazis. J.J. confirmed that Star Wars Villain Kylo Ren is not a Sith, instead part of the Nazi-inspired First Order. The Force Awakens director has revealed some intriguing details about the mysterious character, with fans speculating about his background thanks to his cross-guard lightsaber and lack of a 'Darth' title associated with the Dark Side. Abrams told Empire Magazine:

Kylo Ren is not a Sith. He works under Supreme Leader Snoke, who is a powerful figure on the Dark Side of the Force.

Supreme Leader Snoke will be played by the master of motion capture, Andy Serkis, making the character a very exciting one for fans./ Whilst the filmmaker has stayed vague about Adam Driver's Ren, he did reveal that the villains in Episode VII are inspired by the Nazis. He discussed the influence behind the mysterious First Order, who are seen as an imitator of the Empire after Darth Vader and the Emperor fell.

He said:

That all came out of conversations about what would have happened if the Nazis all went to Argentina but then started working together again?
What could be born of that? Could the First Order exist as a group that actually admire the Empire?
Could the work of the Empire be seen as unfulfilled? And could Vader be a martyr? Could there be a need to see through what didn't get done?

We now know that Kylo Ren is a Nazi type person. What are you expecting from him and the First Order? We will know on December 18 2015!
