The Last Jedi has been released upon the world, and in addition to making boatloads of money for Disney, the film has also given Star Wars fans many new things to obsess over. There are of course the adorable porgs, new characters like Rose, the epic return of Luke Skywalker, numerous subverted expectations, and thrilling lightsaber battles... but perhaps the aspect of the film that fans are most obsessing over is the sexual tension between Rey and Kylo Ren. Shipping #Reylo has become the internet's new favorite thing to do, resulting in loads of Rey and Kylo Ren memes and tweets. Spoilers to follow.
In The Last Jedi, Rey and Kylo Ren spend a lot of time getting to know each other better, and the undeniable bond they shared in The Force Awakens is explored in much greater depth in the film, to the point where it often seems like they are the only ones who understand each other. This is largely illustrated through a number of scenes where the two essentially Facetime by using the Force — a previously unseen power that is used to great effect in the film to enable Rey and Kylo (or Ben, as Rey tends to call him) to share their secrets with each other, touch hands, and even for Kylo to show off his abs. None of this went unnoticed by the internet, so take a look at some of the tweets and memes that have hopped aboard the #Reylo hype train and are looking to ride it all the way to 2019's Episode IX.
