We’ve shown our fair share of Star Wars mashups and fan films over the years. I cite for example:
- Hardware Wars: The Mother of All Star Wars Fan Films (and the Most Profitable Short Film Ever Made)
- A 2 Hour Annotated Star Wars Film That Reveals the Cinematic Influences Behind George Lucas’ Classic Film
- Fans Reconstruct the Authentic Version of Star Wars, As It Was Shown in Theaters in 1977.
- Star Wars Recut as Silent Film
The latest and maybe not greatest fan reworking of Star Wars (now available on YouTube) lets you watch all six Star Wars films online. At once. With one film layered upon the other.
Is there some cultural value to this layering of films? Maybe only insofar as it gives the keen observer the chance to find some meta trends running through the films. One YouTuber commented, “The really interesting part is that they’re similarly paced. If you skip around you’ll almost always find all talking scenes lined up and all action scenes lined up. Just shows how formulaic movies are (or at least how formulaic George Lucas is).”
Feel free to drop your own observations in the comments section below. And, by the way, the person who created this mashup has also made available a full gallery of HD still frames on imgur here.
