Kylo Ren Reacting to the Rogue One Trailer Is All of Us, Admit It

Search your feelings, you know it to be true.

As you and I and everybody all already know, Kylo Ren can be a bit of a, uh… child when it comes to certain things. So, knowing that, YouTube video maestros Auralnauts cut together a “Kylo Ren Reacts” video of the tempestuous child himself (over)reacting to the brand new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer. The video features some pretty excellent quotables like, “Okay, yeah, that is what power looks like. Angles, and… spheres, and… windows!” Plus (stop me if you’ve heard this one): “Who is this person, anyway? She doesn’t look Bothan. Was it Bothans? Or was that the second Death Star?”

As well, Kylo Ren gets pretty enraged, as only Kylo Ren can, in that one moment right at the end of the trailer when we hear Darth Vader’s iconic asthma inhaler re-breather sound. “Grandfather? Wait, who was playing grandfather?! Is that Hayden? Oh my God, it’s Hayden, isn’t it? Why would they do this to me?!” he yelled, with predictable results. The entire video’s really fun, and pretty well cut. Given how excited we all were about Emo Kylo Ren, I suspect this’ll be a fun series of videos (that is, if the creators decide to make it a recurring thing, hint hint).

In all honesty, I had nearly identical reactions to Kylo Ren here. I’m not sure what that says about me (or the Auralnauts’ version of Kylo Ren), but I’m thinking I probably need to spend a little less time reading internet comments and listening to emo music. Yikes.
