The internet has created some truly wonderful Star Wars parodies since The Force Awakens hit theaters. Emo Kylo Ren and Very Lonely Luke are Twitter gold, and Kylo’s run as Matt the Radar Technician on SNL‘s Undercover Boss: Starkiller Base skit was so perfect that we should probably accept the entire skit as official Star Wars canon–just like Kylo Ren’s eight pack.
Even though we’ve got a while yet until Star Wars: Episode VIII hits theaters, it hasn’t stopped fans from created amazingly hilarious parodies online, and Tumblr user Mamalaz just might have won the award for best Star Wars parody ever. Geek & Sundry readers, I’m honored to introduce to you: The Modern Solo Adventures.
This Tumblr is hysterical, and is portrays Han and Leia (with occasional appearances from faves like Luke, Lando, Darth Vader, Poe, Rey, Finn, Hux, and Phasma) as modern parents dealing with their petulant, Vader-loving, Dark Side-worshiping kid, Ben–sorry, I mean Kylo. Guys, it’s Tumblr gold.
I’m not sure what I love more. The Tumblr’s portrayal of Kylo as such a punk to Han, or the fact that regardless of how much of Dark Side flows through Kylo, he loves his mom a lot (though I doubt anyone could NOT love Leia).
And while the epic adventures of Ben/Kylo’s upbringing might be hilarious, the Tumblr also offers us a glimpse into the Organa-Solo family before Han and Leia became parents.
Mamalaz always manages to pick the perfect gifs, and the stories are just so good that you can’t help but hope Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Adam Driver see this and get inspired to create an actual skit based on this Tumblr. But until then, we’ve got more than enough content on the Modern Solo Adventures tag to keep us occupied.
What would you like to see on Mamalaz’s Modern Solo Adventures? Have you found another Star Wars parody that you love? Tell us about it in the comments!
