The Star Wars universe exploded with LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, introducing over 300 playable characters and hours of immersive gameplay. But, Star Wars fans have noticed a massive change to Han Solo and Kylo Ren that goes against what originally happened in Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens (2015).

Upon reuniting with his son Ben Solo/Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) on the Starkiller Base, Sith user Kylo Ren conquers the light side of his spirit by igniting his iconic lightsaber and killing his father.

The scene in The Force Awakens is brutal and shocking for many, as icon Han Solo’s Star Wars tenure finally came to a close with Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker (2019).

Now, every Star Wars fan can relieve this heartbreaking moment in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker SagaSort of.

In the above video, Kylo Ren does not stab his father, but rather Han Solo deals with his death with Ren’s lightsaber.

Upon helping his son complete a task that he does not require the strength to do — clean his lightsaber — Han Solo carves a perfect circle around the catwalk that he’s standing on, only to fall through in a Looney Tunes fashion.

That intense, gripping moment from the Sequel Trilogy has been altered hilariously, shedding light on what truly lies behind all of the backlash that directors J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson faced upon the release of Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi (2018) and more.
