An eagle eyed reddit user noticed a pretty huge Easter Egg in Kylo Ren’s scar. If you didn’t notice, Kylo Ren’s scar is a little different in Star Wars: The Last Jedi than it was in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That’s because The Last Jedi director, Rian Johnson, changed it and now we may know why.
In the climax of The Force Awakens Kylo Ren came face to face with his father, Han Solo. In the scene Solo tries to coerce his son back to the light side of the force and to come home. Solo caresses Ren’s face and as a Reddit user pointed out, the same spot Solo touched, is where Ren’s modified scar is in The Last Jedi.

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Images Showcase Rey & Kylo Ren Throne Scene
Disney has released some high-res images from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Some of these images give high-quality looks at some of the film’s characters but the highlight is certainly the image taken from the film’s epic throne scene featuring Rey and Kylo Ren using their Force skills against the Praetorian Guards.
Even with the film’s polarizing reception among fans, including a certain moment that occurs before the action in the throne room commences, this scene between Rey and Kylo Ren has been universally praised much of which is thanks to Rian Johnson’s impeccable visual storytelling, certainly inspired by the ways of samurai and how they battle.
The way the throne room just glows with beautiful red iconography just showcases the mastery that Johnson possesses with his direction. Top that off with incredible lightsaber choreography and you got a scene that will go down as one of the all-time classic sequences in the entire Star Wars saga.
What do you think of the images? Based on them, what do you think of Steve Yedlin’s cinematography? Do you think it is vibrant and stands out in the Skywalker saga?
