You might remember a few years ago when Star Wars superfan and character actor, Topher Grace, edited all the prequels into one 85-minute movie. Well, Grace is at it again, this time creating a five-minute trailer for the entire series that will give you goosebumps, bring you to tears, and show you what the Star Wars universe is all about.
Topher teamed up with Jeff Yorkes to create this trailer. They claim they had a lot of time on their hands because their wives were out of town. Well played.
Yorkes added via Twitter: "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... @louscafe_edit"
Check out the trailer below.
I know there's been some recent backlash with Star Wars. There was controversy about the casting, about The Last Jedi, about fanboys, the Solo directors, and just the future of the franchise in general. If there's one thing to take from all that, it's the love and passion people have for these characters. I think this trailer does a great job highlighting that love and passion, but also reminding us where it came from and what Star Wars is all about.
Star Wars is a diverse and interesting universe that specializes in telling the stories of those marginalized on the outside.
