Modern Solo Adventures by Mamalaz.
One great thing that’s come out of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is making fun of that emo little Sith Kylo Ren, particularly when his tantrums become an SNL sketch that inspires tattoos and action figures. And, at this point, it shouldn’t be a spoiler anymore to mention he’s Ben Solo, the son of Han and Leia. Seriously, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, you probably don’t care about it. For the rest of us who have seen it, we can be amused at the thought of a permanently cynical Han and a stressed out Princess– oops, General — Leia trying to raise a lanky emo kid who’s obsessed with grandpa and fascism.
Which makes it even sweeter that Mamalaz over on Tumblr has spent this past week creating a magnificent series of GIFs called “Modern Solo Adventures” which use footage of Adam Driver, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Billy Dee Williams from other movies to make a modern version of Kylo Ren: The Teenage Years. We know Matt the radar technician would probably love these (or throw an insane tantrum, it’s either or, really). And, hey, you don’t have to look at them if you don’t think they’re cool. *hurls GIFs across room*
