We are now less than one week away from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the most anticipated film of the entire year. All the trailers have teased an intense and emotional sequel, so fans are understandably excited to see Rey, Luke Skywalker, and Kylo Ren. Star Wars has no shortage of fans, and one group is so pumped for the movie that they've created their own homemade version of The Last Jedi trailer. They didn't have a million dollar effects budget, but they did still have a porg, so check out the trailer below!
You don't need spaceships and laser beams when you have cardboard cutouts and Christmas lights. The YouTube account Dumb Drum made their own sweded version of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer. Using a minimal budget, they recreated the trailer frame by frame utilizing actors and homemade props and sets. They even do an acapella version of the music! It's always fun to see what people can do with some imagination (and duct tape), and the fact that they are able to recreate some of the more effects heavy sequences is pretty impressive. They should also get points for that Chewbacca made of cardboard boxes.
Directed and written by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi continues the story of Rey and her quest to find out more about her past. Undergoing training with Luke Skywalker, Rey's Force powers continue to grow at an alarming rate, giving Luke unpleasant flashbacks to a certain other pupil he had. Meanwhile, Finn and the Resistance continue their battle against the First Order, which is planning a major counterattack following their loss in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Buzz is high for the movie right now, and we will likely here critics first reaction to the movie before the weekend is over.
To see how this trailer stakes up with the actual The Last Jedi trailer, Dumb Drum also provided a side by side comparison. Their video is pretty spot on compared to the original so check that out for yourself below.
We can't promise that there will be any fun cardboard cutouts, but there will be plenty of other mindboggling effects in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The highly anticipated sequel is all set to hit theaters on December 15, so if you haven't pre-ordered your tickets yet, you might want to get on that. To learn more about the movie, here's what we know so far about The Last Jedi.
