Excuse me, while I dry my eyes and get this lump out of my throat, but I just came across a year old fan video on Jedis that kinda got me all emotional. Phew, what an experience!
Anyway, the video you can watch below comes from a Lightsabers page on Facebook, and while it’s a bit lengthy at 8-minutes, if you’re a Star Wars fan — hopefully not one of those angry ones — but even then I think you’ll appreciate the story it tells. It essentially relates the stories of Luke and Anakin, and how both of their paths as Jedi were different but the same, and does so with expertly edited clips from all three trilogies, and that gut wrenching song from the Dead Island video game that captured the Internet’s souls many years ago.
The video really excels at showing how Luke and Anakin’s journeys were similar but different, and it does it in a way that makes the three trilogies feel as one. I know everyone has a hard time agreeing on if the Prequels are worse than the Disney trilogy, and this, that, and the other thing, but the way this video is edited makes it hard to hate any of the Star Wars films, regardless of how you may feel about them in a standalone setting.
Enough of my babbling, you shouldn’t need anymore persuading to check the video out. Have an emotional moment, it’s good for the soul!
