    So I'm making the assumption that the Knights of Ren will appear as secondary lieutenants to Kylo in Ep IX. Also, I'm assuming the final piece of Rey's TFA vision, where she sees the KOR on the rain soaked battlefield, will finally have some context given to it. That's the only part of Rey's vision we've yet to see more of, and I have to figure it'll be wrapped up then. Also, just because Ren is wearing his helmet in that part of the vision, doesn't mean he'll have it when it actually happens. After all, he was wearing it in the forest part of her vision, and we know he wasn't wearing it when that confrontation actually came.

    Yes I will be shocked if the Knights of Ren aren't used in Ep9. Now that Snoke is dead it feels like the movie has been opened up to give them lots of screen time. How many are there? What have they been doing? Can any of them be turned back to the light?

    I hope Rey doesn't take them all out herself. I want to see Finn get an opportunity to do some hero stuff and taking out some Knights of Ren would be a great opportunity!

    Some days ago I've started to think that this scene depicts a future event in IX. We also know that JJ loves the KOR and he wants to see more of them. So I think they will have a big role in EPIX. Hopefully they have some personality. I don't need yet another Phasma.

    There are six of them. This is the only image we have of all of them. [​IMG]

    I'm starting to think it's a future event as well. I also hope they have some personality. It'd be really lame if they were just more Praetorian guards. I mean, not all of them have to be grandiose, but I feel like we should get a feel for their personalities. That's why I've also suggested that we'll probably see Hux die really early in the next film to make room for these guys to play off each other.

    One of them could be the second main villain. That would be great.

    If that scene with the Praetorians is anything to go by, my guess is that the knights of ren will be quite awesome. I did read however in one of the official publications that they're 'infiltrating'.

    Perhaps even looking to usurp Ren?

    I think it'd be interesting if at the end of ep IX, we don't see the First Order beaten, but only see Kylo beaten, or redeemed. Kind of like the end of the old Legacy comics, where Darth Krayt was beaten, but we got a sense the Sith would continue under Nihl.

    I think the KOR could play a role in Episode 9. I mean, maybe they were dispatched by Kylo once he started studying under Snoke and were just waiting for the moment when Kylo took Snoke out and become the leader. Now that he is in control, he can bring his buddies back into the mix and really start his galactic domination...

    The only thing that's keeping me from agreeing that the vision depicts a future event is Kylo's helmet.

    I feel like he is just way past that phase after TLJ.

    I think we'll have to get some sort of closure on them.

    I think it's possible that even if they were just a throwaway line in TFA, Johnson just wasn't ready to adapt them to TLJ. Since 2015, though, they've gotten a ton of speculation and fan curiosity. Abrams knows fans want to know more about them- there's no reason to leave them unaddressed for Episode 9.

    Just because he was wearing the helmet in the vision, doesn't mean he'd be wearing it in reality. He didn't wear it in the forest on Starkiller after all.

    I’m really hanging on to the theory that KOR will be in the next episode. We need something more other than what we have now like Kylo, Hux and the FO. KOR would top it all off along with some Snoke info.

    After TFA's release, I remember JJ saying that the KOR would make a good standalone film, so now that he is directing ep.9 I wonder if he would change his mind and include the KOR in ep.9.

    I dont think we will see them because I thiink that the knights of ren are the red guards in Snoke's throne room in the last jedi .They were killed by Rey and Kylo Ren.

    So we are saying that Kylo Ren was willing to kill his own knights? Then why would he still keep the Ren name though?

    We should stop the whole it only makes sense that this happen bit... They don’t give a damn about making sense. The Knights Ren won’t make an apparent in this trilogy. I don’t think at least. Not after Snoke clowned Kylo and his ridiculous vetish with a mask.

    They’d also have to explain where the hell they were when their leader kept failing.

    They have to be dead, killed by Rian Johnson. Probably killed during a stupid move by Ren.

    Just because he Kills the KOR after they departed him and became the PG, doesn’t mean he didn’t still want to foster the Ren legacy.

    This just highlights the level of mistakes Rian Johnson made in this movie.

    I really think The Last Jedi was meant to be like Episode VII - Part 2 as we started right off where we last left but at the same time was a worthy Episode VIII on its own as it brought so many things to the table. Episode VIII sealed the deal that the First Order is really aggressive in taking over the galaxy, and the real villain is Kylo Ren himself. We have to look at this new trilogy differently compared to the OT and PT.

    Trust me, we are getting everything we want in Episode IX. We will see the Knights of Ren in their prime in this movie.

    Prediction 1 : Kylo Ren kills the Knights of Ren and marks his redemption

    Prediction 2 : Kylo Ren redeems to the light, the Knights of Ren will run off and will be the main villains of Episodes X - XII

    They will become the Royal guards, one thing Kylo understood from his usurpation is, that you need force using guards.

    I've had this idea floating in my mind or theory rather, but let's say they went the redemption route with Ben. Let's say The KoR come back for IX and try and over throw Ben because he killed Snoke.

    The reason I think about this is because it would be odd if Rey beats Kylo again, I wouldn't hate it or anything, but a new threat like the KoR rising up would put a dent in Ben's Supreme leadership to the point that Rey and Ben must work together again. Somehow, maybe Luke convinces Ben to the light. I don't know. Just a thought.

    My point is Rey and Ben work together to create a real balance. They learn the true balance and the true Jedi ways. I think they do both need each other. Not in a romance way but to end the new threat
