J.J. Abrams Reveals Nazi Inspirations for 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Villains
The 'Force Awakens' director likens The First Order to the infamous Hitler army who fled Germany after World War II.


J.J. Abrams talks about inspirations behind the new villains in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". Speaking to Empire magazine, the director reveals that The First Order was inspired by Nazis who fled to South America after Hitler fell.

"Kylo Ren is not a Sith," he said of the villainous character portrayed by Adam Driver. "He works under Supreme Leader Snoke, who is a powerful figure on the Dark Side of the Force."

"That all came out of conversations about what would have happened if the Nazis all went to Argentina but then started working together again? What could be born of that? Could The First Order exist as a group that actually admired The Empire? Could the work of The Empire be seen as unfulfilled?" he said. "And could Vader be a martyr? Could there be a need to see through what didn't get done?"

"The Force Awakens" is slated for a release in U.S. theaters on December 18. It stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, and Lupita Nyong'o among others.
