16 Rey & Kylo Ren Memes & Tweets That Prove ‘The Last Jedi’ Was All About Reylo
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.
This fan threw together a little music video set to Miia's "Dynasty" using some bootlegged footage of the film. I'm not crying, you're crying.
4. THAT Fight Scene
Whether you're on #teamReylo or not, there's no denying their battle scene was one of the best in the movie.
6. Pure Romance
Kylo's line when he told Rey she was a nobody to everyone but him sent millions of hearts aflutter.
7. Raising The Bar
Sure, Kylo wants to shroud the galaxy in darkness, but it was still a gentlemanly gesture to ask Rey to do it with him. He even said please.
10. I Wanna Hold Your Hand
Can you imagine how many porn parodies are going to start with this scene?
11. Sorry, Haters
For anyone who thought Reylo reached its peak in The Force Awakens... uh, yeah, no.
15. A New Hope
Just because Reylo ended on bad terms in The Last Jedi, there's still a chance they make up and have little Force babies.
16. Not So Fast, Poe
Poe and Rey definitely have a little moment when they meet at the end of The Last Jedi, but Reylo fans aren't scared.
Reylo shippers are only going to get stronger between now and Episode IX, so if you're not on the hype train yet, you might want to head down to the station and get your ticket before they sell out.
