As we inch closer to The Force Awakens, new character details are being leaked to increase anticipation. In a recent interview, director J.J. Abrams dishes on the mysterious Kylo Ren, played by Adam Driver. As some fans may have surmised, Kylo Ren is not a Sith. Though he looks like one, acts like one, and probably smells like one, he’s not a Sith. It makes sense, considering he doesn’t have the “Darth” prefix. Abrams explains that Ren is a soldier of sorts for Supreme Leader Snoke, a powerful figure on the Dark Side.

Snoke is the character played by Andy Serkis and his performance-capture technique who can be heard as a voiceover in the first teaser, which can be seen below:

You can catch The Force Awakens in theaters on December 18th.
