Is Kylo Ren Luke Skywalker? 6 Things That Support This Theory

Entertainment, Movies

By now everyone should know about the new Star wars movie that is set to be released this December. However, as far as the characters and the story go, we actually don’t know that much. Sure we’ve seen trailers and other promotional media but these don’t  really tell us a lot. J.J. Abrams and Disney seem to be more keen to shed light on the heroes of the story rather than the new villain – Kylo Ren.

A mysterious black figure, with a cool looking lightsaber, is not really a lot to go on. However, that hasn’t stopped fans from coming up with their own theories about this villains true identity.

Kylo Ren is Luke Skywalker. Are we crazy? Maybe – but just hear us out before you decide for yourself.


This has to be mentioned first because of how obvious it is. Kylo Ren and Luke have never been seen together – ever. We’re not just talking about official trailers; Kylo and Luke haven’t been seen together on virtually any piece of promotional material.

It has already been confirmed that Luke is going to be in the movie – he was talking in the very first full-length trailer and we’re almost sure that he was the one putting a hand on R2D2.

What adds even more merit to this Kylo-Luke theory is that Luke is the only main character that is not featured on the movie’s poster. That’s odd. So why hide Luke if his identity won’t be a major plot point in the movie? Kylo is on the poster… so maybe Luke really is there, in some form.
