If you haven’t heard, Star Wars Episode VIII is going into production. How do we know? Well the guys at Disney sent out a 35-second video on YouTube to tell us that. It’s pretty much 20 seconds of the last scene of Star Wars Episode VII, when Rey hands over Luke’s lightsaber back to him, and 15 seconds of people clapping at the launch of production. Still, we’re eating it up.
In the meantime, the Internet has discovered @mamalaz on Tumblr, whose GIFs are giving us a good laugh at what he imagines must have been life at the Solo household in the earlier years of Ben Solo a.k.a. Kylo Ren’s life. That’s before he kills off his dad Han, of course, which incidentally someone at Lego has made into a video of their own.
@mamalaz’s work is hilarious. Here are our favourites.
There’s also angsty Kylo.
And lazy teenager Kylo.
Enjoy the entire series here.
