Do I need to know any Java to learn Kotlin?

Do I need to know any Java to learn Kotlin?

I was teaching myself Swift for awhile before I tried putting it to practice and learned that not only did I have to know Obj-C but I also had to learn Xcode. I tried that route but Obj-C just wasn’t happening for me.

Is Kotlin similar? And do I have to learn Android Studio? I’ve got about a year of React-Native under my belt and I want to learn a native language next. Kotlin looks great but I’m apprehensive because I really do not like Java.
