WATCH: This fan edit of Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer makes us want to run home and watch the Prequels immediately

November 5th, 2015 by Matt Gault Comments


Since the release of the final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we’ve seen numerous fan edits and reaction videos and now Max Nicholson has done something a little different, delivering a Force Awakens-style trailer for the Prequel Trilogy.

We don’t normally post a video like this as a standalone story but this one was just so darn good we had to. It hit us nearly as hard in the feels as the actual Force Awakens trailer. And that’s really saying something.

“After watching several great fan edits of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, I got inspired to create one for the Prequel Trilogy,” states Nicholson. “One thing that always bugged me about the prequels — including the marketing — was how they gave away the big twist from Empire. So, I decided to make a video that reinforced Obi-Wan’s original story to Luke in the first Star Wars movie.”
