Kylo Ren is clearly the son of Han Solo and Leia Organa but while not a lot connects the three family members besides slight facial similarities I have discovered an incredible trait that both Kylo Ren and Han Solo share and it is quite awesome. Here it is.
I Call It “The Solo Lean”
One of the most memorable traits of Han Solo is his patented lean whenever he shoots his blaster. I’ve always laughed at the way he shoots his blaster in that fashion but now I’ve discovered that Kylo Ren does the same thing when he fights as well!
Several times throughout his battles in The Last Jedi (mainly when he faces Luke Skywalker on Crait) he adopts a leaning stance as he prepares to fight as you can see in this picture.
Right here you see that lean action coming back into play.
And here’s yet another example of Kylo Ren’s Solo blood revealing itself in full form. The only character in Star Wars that performed this patented stance in battle was Han Solo and now it’s only fitting that his son, Ben Solo, would continue that trend.
That’s the fun thing about Star Wars. You can watch a movie over and over again and continue to discover something new either in the background or a slight reference that had been hiding in plain sight. This is undoubtedly one of the coolest Easter eggs I’ve discovered in quite a while and it just makes Kylo Ren that much cooler.
I hope you enjoyed this reading just as much as I have had fun writing it and I hope you have a fantastic day. May the Force be with you.
