Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is set to release in a few weeks and is anticipated to be one of the biggest movies of the decade. It’s the end of the saga, following behind The Last Jedi‘s release in 2017. While we all love characters in the new saga such as Rey, Finn, Poe, Rose and BB-8, there’s one character we especially love: Kylo Ren.
The conflicted, tantrum-throwing Kylo is now the Supreme Leader of the First Order, and since Disney owns Lucasfilm, we’re going to bring you 9 reasons why Kylo Ren is a true Disney Prince.
His Mom Is Royalty
Kylo Ren, also known as Ben Solo, was born to Princess Leia Organa and Han Solo. Princess Leia is the princess of the planet Alderaan, so, his mom is actual royalty. That makes him at least have the title of a Prince.
His Prince-Like Hair
His swooping locks, which freely blow in the wind like some sort of hair commercial, make him a shoe-in for a Disney Prince. After all, they all have great hair, and Kylo’s no exception.
Disney Princes and Princesses all seem to have some sort of family problems, and Kylo is no exception. Remember The Force Awakens? It’s safe to say Kylo has more than his fair share.
Disney Princes often have girl problems — and we can count Kylo as having one as well. In The Last Jedi after defeating Snoke, Kylo asks Rey to join him and says that they can rule together, and she rejects him. With their Force connection, there’s much more in store for these two.
He’s Got A Cool Weapon
It’s no sword, but he’s got a cool-looking lightsaber that resembles one. All Disney Princes wield impressive weapons, so it’s just more evidence he’s a Disney Prince.
He Sticks Up For What He Believes In
What he believes in might be the Dark Side, but at least he sticks up for it.
He can do a cool slide … that should count, right?
Shirtless for No Reason
In The Last Jedi, he appears shirtless in a Force connection with Rey. What more could you ask for in a Disney Prince then to just appear shirtless at random times?
He’s Tall and Attractive
He’s tall, brooding, attractive, and played by Adam Driver. I think that’s enough evidence.
