One of the many unanswered questions in Star Wars The Force Awakens is: How did the obsessed Kylo Ren get a hold of Darth Vader’s Helmet? When last we saw it, it was being burned by Luke Skywalker at the end of Return of the Jedi. Although it’s all speculation, Youtube user Star Wars Minute, may have found the answer. According to the video, Delilah S. Dawson’s short story, The Perfect Weapon (a book that is part of the Journey to the Force Awakens and considered canon) offers the best hint so far.
Unfortunately, not everything can be answered within a 2 hour movie. It’s awesome that the Star Wars franchise has these short stories and books to tie things in. Plus, it also continues to keep the saga fresh and active.
