The "Star Wars" series is at once one of the most beloved in cinema history, as well as one of the most hotly contested, inspiring fierce loyalty, endless admiration, and yes, plenty of nasty trolls, too. And even if you're not really a fan of the galaxy far, far away, there's no denying that the franchise is iconic, something that is made abundantly clear by a new mega-trailer that mashes up all 10 films in the series so far.
Actor Topher Grace and his pal, editor Jeff Yorkes, have made it a hobby to re-edit and re-cut certain films and series, either creating new movies entirely, or in the case of this most recent clip, epic trailers. In the past, the pair has taken on the "Star Wars" prequels, Peter Jackson's "Hobbit" trilogy, and Steven Spielberg classic "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."
Their latest project was to create a five(ish)-minute clip that mashes up all of the "Star Wars" flicks: The original trilogy of "A New Hope," "The Empire Strikes Back," and "Return of the Jedi"; the new Skywalker Saga films "The Force Awakens" and "The Last Jedi"; the prequels "The Phantom Menace," "Attack of the Clones," and "Revenge of the Sith"; and the spinoffs "Rogue One" and "Solo." What Grace and Yorkes came up with is nothing short of breathtaking -- and proves that whatever beef some fans may have with the latter films, the magic of "Star Wars" is still very much alive.
While we anxiously wait for a look at the upcoming "Episode IX," we'll be tiding ourselves over with this clip in the meantime.
The Imperial Forces -- under orders from cruel Darth Vader (David Prowse) -- hold Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) hostage, in their efforts to quell the rebellion against the Galactic Empire. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford), captain of the Millennium Falcon, work together with the companionable droid duo R2-D2 (Kenny Baker) and C-3PO (Anthony Daniels) to rescue the beautiful princess, help the Rebel Alliance, and restore freedom and justice to the Galaxy.
