Besides Galaxy of Adventures, Star Wars Kids on Youtube has this other show called Star Wars: Roll Out which is a series of shorts featuring BB-versions of your favorite characters getting caught in silly hijinks. The first episode just came out, and it gives us a look at baby Ben Solo.
Check it out:
Sweet but chaotic Ben Solo keeps bungling the plans of his dad Han and his Uncle Chewbacca. When he secretly tags along on their mission to capture some crystal butterflies, a gang of rival Bug Hunters make Ben look like the least of their problems!
While I don’t expect any of these stories to be canon, I think there’s some kind of authenticity when it comes to portraying the characters’ relationships with one another. Sure Ben Solo was kind of terrible when we met him, but here he’s just a cute kid hanging out with his dad.
If you’ve been online after the release of The Rise of Skywalker, you’ll know that a huge chunk of the fanbase was pissed that Ben Solo had to die. Now there’s a demand to bring him back, but with Lucasfilm on hiatus, I don’t think we’re going to see a return any time soon.
Personally, I thought it would have been better if Ben lived and just lived out his life in hiding. It would have probably been more fitting for him to be the one in Tatooine, living out a farmer’s life; with Rey probably visiting from time to time. I just don’t see him with the rest of the Resistance after all the people he’s killed.
For now, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is available on digital.
