Star Wars: The Force Awakens has inspired two new parody Twitter accounts that are increasingly gaining followers - Very Lonely Luke and Emo Kylo Ren.

*WARNING* Spoilers ahead.

At the end of J.J Abrams blockbuster we see Adam Driver as Kylo Ren - a.k.a. Ben Solo, the son of Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and the former student of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) turn to the Dark Side.

As a lanky, raven-headed kid with a penchant for black robes, it's not hard to imagine him as an ultra-privileged, ultra-moody teen - desperate for validation from both his famous father and deceased grandfather.

Emo Kylo Ren tweets about the struggles of being an emo teen, along with the secret to achieving his glossy, dark locks.

The world is totally against him... the Starbucks baristas can't even get his name right. Kyle?

The account has already amassed over one million followers.

Another Twitter account has imagined what Luke Skywalker was up to until the point he was discovered in The Force Awakens (living as a hermit on a secret planet after the betrayal of his Jedi apprentice Ben Solo).

The solitary, hooded figure that was perched atop a cliff, staring at the expanse of sea below him had had plenty of time to feel sorry for himself and ponder life's biggest questions.
