    The biggest shock of last year's Star Wars smash The Force Awakens was the death of Han Solo. Kylo Ren was revealed to be Han and Leia's son Ben, but the reunion between father and son came to an unfortunate end when Kylo plunged a lightsaber into his poor dad. Now director JJ Abrams has spoken about this shocking scene in a new audio commentary for the movie.

    As reported by USA Today, on the commentary Abrams explains that, in his view, Kylo did not initially intend to kill Solo, but was under the evil influence of the mysterious Supreme Leader Snoke. "People have asked me if I think that Kylo Ren was just playing with him the whole time, if he meant to kill him from the beginning," the director said. "And the truth is, I think Kylo Ren, in this moment, is actually being convinced to walk away from this. Snoke is, as Han says, using him, and I think that somewhere Ben knows this. But I think that he can't accept it. Deep down, he has gone too far."

    Abrams goes on to explain that Jon Kasdan, the son of Force Awakens co-writer Lawrence Kasdan, helped the pair write the scene.

    The director also notes that despite the tragedy of the scene, the odds of it ever having a happy conclusion were never high. "Obviously, any time two characters in Star Wars go out on an incredibly thin bridge ten miles above the ground with no railings, it's not going to end well for one of them," he jokes.

    The Force Awakens had its original home entertainment release back in April, but the new commentary can be found on the 3D edition of the movie, which hits Blu-ray at the end of this month. The four-disc release also features the following new features (via Collider):

    • A look at how sound technicians blend action with audio effects in the featurette Foley: A Sonic Tale.
    • Sounds of the Resistance, another audio themed doc showing how the sound designers blended real recordings into otherworldly effects in the film.
    • Deleted Scenes – While there were a handful of deleted footage on the original Blu-ray, this one promises even more “never-before-shared” scenes.
    • Dressing the Galaxy – A look at how wardrobe designs from the original trilogy were retooled by costume designer Michael Kaplan to fit the galaxy three decades later.
    • Daisy Ridley and John Boyega share a conversation in The Scavenger and the Stormtrooper, a featurette that was released only on the previous disc as an exclusive at Target stores.
    • Inside the Armory – A tour of the various weapons and battle gear in the battle between the Resistance and The First Order.
