Star Wars Celebration is in full swing in Chicago, and fans have already been treated to an array of exciting news, including the title of the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The panel for the final film in the Skywalker saga revealed the movie’s first trailer, and the Internet has been abuzz with theories, excitement, and some hilarious jokes. One such joke comes from Twitter user, @andrewmena, who made a pretty spot-on comparison between Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and another beloved adventurer: The Mummy’s Rick O’Connell (Brendan Fraser).
“Same energy tbh,” they wrote. Andrew, you’re not wrong! These men certainly know how to pull off a very specific look.
Many fans were quick to comment on the photo with their own hilarious takes on the comparison.
“Oops, that explains a lot of my current feelings,” @CauseCommotions wrote.
“I'm gonna think about this tweet for the rest of my life,” @kennatrent added.
“This is the Mummy remake we deserve!, @FMGhost09 replied.
Many others chimed in to compare Poe’s look to Nathan Drake’s from the Uncharted video game series.
