Star Wars fans are still very much surprised to learn about Kylo Ren's fate in The Rise of Skywalker. And while the movie's ending is still sinking in, some fans are eager to know more about Ben Solo's turn to the Dark Side. The miniseries proves to be promising so far, and it seems like an Easter egg was even spotted too!

This article contains SPOILERS for Star Wars: The Rise of Kylo Ren #2.

In the second issue of Star Wars: The Rise of Kylo Ren, readers will find Ben and Luke Skywalker in Elphrona where they found a treasure trove. It seems like the Jedi has used the place as a storage site, however, they weren't able to return and use the items in it.

Luke was excited about the stuff and even told Ben that they have a lot of things they could learn using those. However, Ben and Luke sensed that something was wrong, with the next panel revealing the Knights of Ren, along with their leader. Star Wars fans would be very familiar with Ren's greeting upon his entrance. "Well, hello there," he said. You can check out the preview below.

Yes, the line was similar to that of Obi-Wan Kenobi's greeting, "Hello there," from the iconic scene where he faces General Grievous in Revenge of the Sith. That being said, it isn't clear if they intentionally place that sentence as a reference to the Jedi Master's line, but it is a pretty cool touch.

The full preview is available here. Star Wars: The Rise of Kylo Ren #2 is already on sale on January 8th, so you could check out what happens next to Ben and Luke in this issue.
