Do you remember the first time you watched a Star Wars movie? Was there a feeling of adventure? Excitement? Magic, even? Well now you can relive all of those feelings and more with this mega cut trailer featuring all 10 films in the franchise thanks to editor Jeff Yorkes and actor Topher Grace.
Tuesday, Grace and Yorkes dropped the 5 minute long video on YouTube, which they created over a weekend together. When their wives were out of town, of course. It’s not just a trailer splicing footage from all of the movies together, oh no. This fan project exceeds it, showing the emotional core of the franchise. The successes and failures, the excitement and heartbreak. Yorkes took to Twitter to share why they created it. “Why don’t studios make ‘mega-trailers,’ tying all the movies of one franchise together, reminding you why you fell in love in the first place? Wouldn’t that kick ass?! Well, that’s what my pal tophergrace and I thought…” Trust me, you definitely fall in love all over again.
Some of the best moments in the trailer come from cut footage from the films. Such as Biggs Darklighter talking about resisting the Empire. Not to mention the formation of The Rebellion, featuring Bail Organa, Padmé Amidala and Mon Mothma. Just seeing all of the stories connect together pretty smoothly is such an experience. It’s enough to give you chills! Also makes you want to grab a bowl of popcorn and marathon all of the movies immediately.
Grace is no stranger to editing films. He’s previously re-cut the entire prequel trilogy into one film as well as making The Hobbit trilogy into a single two-hour movie. While those are impressive and many fans have praised him doing it – this trailer really shines. In fact, they did such a good job, I’d love to see all sorts of franchises made into mega-trailers. However, since Star Wars is my favorite, I can be happy with just this.
