'The Force Awakens' Blu-ray Reveals Why Kylo Ren Turned to the Dark Side
Everybody knows that Kylo Ren is evil in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We even know some of the backstory of his turn to the Dark Side: He was seduced by Snoke when he was young and under the tutelage of Luke Skywalker, and he slaughtered his other trainees. But what we don't know is why Kylo turned to the Dark Side. Well, now we do, thanks the The Force Awakens' Blu-ray special features.

As part of the Secrets of The Force Awakens documentary, which is turning out to be a treasure trove of valuable information, it's revealed by actor Adam Driver and director J.J. Abrams that Kylo turns to the Dark Side largely because of bad parenting. He became targeted by Snoke at a young age due to his power potential, and Han and Leia simply were not in his life enough to prevent his turn to evil.

"He's lost in the world that he was raised in and feels that he was kind of abandoned by the people he was closest with," says Driver.

Abrams adds, "Snoke had targeted this kid ... so this mother and a father had a target for a son, someone was watching their boy. And these parents aren't there enough to guide him."

You can watch the entire clip below, but just be warned that by the end of it, you might find yourself rooting for Kylo Ren a little bit. Poor guy.
