Ahead of Star Wars: Episode IX releasing later this year, a new parody video has emerged, featuring Kylo Ren and Rey serenading each other with an adapted version of ‘Shallow’ from A Star is Born.
Freddy Scott portrays a masked Kylo Ren, with Myah Marie as Rey. The pair faithfully capture the singing styles of Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga respectively, while still maintaining their characters’ place in the Star Wars universe.
As Kylo Ren attempts to convince Rey to join him on the Dark Side, Rey encourages him to consider who he wants to be: Kylo Ren or Ben Solo. Then they join together in a rousing chorus, but instead of repeatedly singing the word “Shallow,” the pair alternate “Kylo” and “Solo.”
Directed and co-written by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: Episode IX stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Keri Russell, Matt Smith, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams and Carrie Fisher, with Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant. The film is scheduled to open on December 20.
