Although I guess they could probably find a way to explain the moving scar within the story. Star Wars isn't technically science fiction -- it's fantasy. So there are fantastical elements that don't have to be explained with literal physics. But STILL, they can't just say "anything goes." Unless ... maybe the First Order has skilled surgeon-droids who can proficiently patch up human faces? Especially if that person's strong with the Force, which helps the healing? They can reattach hands pretty expertly. And Kylo Ren wears a mask anyway, so he wouldn't need to totally remove the scar -- just patch it up so it doesn't obstruct his breathing and keep reopening all the time. I guess ... yeah, then it would make some sense.
So, fine. I'll still see the next Star Wars film, as I am a completionist. But I and my childhood will NOT be happy about it. And if you guys so much as BRUSH UP AGAINST those two charming antennae on BB-8's little robo-head, then so help me, I am DONE using fiction to experience joy.

The proliferation of beer pong and craft beer may have you think that we're living in one of the peak times to get drunk, but humans have been getting famously hammered for millennia. Like a frat house's lawn after a kegger, history is littered with world changing events that were secretly powered by booze. The inaugural games of the Roman Coliseum, the drafting of the US Constitution and the Russian Revolution were all capped off by major parties that most attendees probably regretted in the morning.
Join Jack O'Brien and Cracked staffers Carmen Angelica, Alex Schmidt, Michael Swaim, plus comedian Blake Wexler for a retelling of history's biggest moments you didn't realize everyone was drunk for.
