The Millennium Falcon may have made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, but a trailer combing bits of all 10 of the Star Wars films will make your heart race in just about 5 minutes.
From “A New Hope” to “Solo,” the super sci-fi cut is the work of two total Star Wars geeks — actor Topher Grace and editor Jeff Yorkes. The video, titled “Star Wars: Always,” has more than a million views after being released on YouTube this week.
There’s young Luke Skywalker and old Luke Skywalker; young Hal Solo and old; young Princess Leia, Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi and old. Oh, and old Yoda and … old Yoda. Characters and footage from the original trilogy, prequels and latest trilogy are combined for a rather seamless take on the franchise.
Bookended by Luke at the start and Rey at the end, the trailer would be a great primer for a newbie who might be just getting around to taking in the iconic storyline of good vs. evil in a galaxy far, far away.
Here’s how Grace and Yorkes shared the trailer on 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 https://t.co/qRBBE5sbpK
