The whole story of Star Wars can feel overwhelming, but in this new fan-made supercut, it feels like the tightest story every created. By incorporating deleted scenes, and the major beats from all ten existing Star Wars movies, this supercut truly binds the galaxy together. It’s called “Star Wars Forever” and it tells the whole story in five brilliant edited minutes.
It starts off with Luke Skywalker looking through his special macro-binoculars up at the sky on Tatooine. The thing is, that shot of Luke looking up into space isn’t actually in any of the official cuts of Star Wars: A New Hope, and is, in fact, a very famous deleted scene. But, the sly deep cuts keep coming. The supercut drops in several other scenes not actually in the theatrical cuts of the films. For example, Bail Organa (Jimmy Smits) talks the fall of the Republic in a deleted scene from Revenge of the Sith, Luke builds his green lightsaber in a deleted scene from Return of the Jedi, Biggs talks to Luke about not getting drafted by the Empire in another A New Hope deleted scene, and even some of Leia’s dialogue (calling Han and Luke “moon jockeys”) sounds like it comes from an unused screentest! Wow!
The slick editing weaves in scenes from the prequels seamlessly with stuff from The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi and back again. While everyone waits for the new trailer for Episode IX, this supercut will make anyone who loves Star Wars feel more than a little bit nostalgic.
Here’s the supercut again. Punch it!
