Cool Videos: Star Wars cut in the style of Guardians of the Galaxy

06.23.2014

When the theatrical poster for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY dropped, it brought with it a classic STAR WARS vibe. While GUARDIANS may be a little more tongue-in-cheek than everyone's favorite space opera, that's no reason to think that the similarities end there. Now someone has come along and cut a trailer of the original trilogy in the same vein as GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, and the likeness between the two franchises seem even more apparent!

Take a look:

Music is obviously a big factor, setting the tone for GUARDIANS in a way that's different from STAR WARS. Brilliant move, as far as I'm concerned, as it immediately clues you in to what type of movie you're in for.

We'll see how GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY compares when it hits theaters on August 1, 2014.

That was really well done. My only problem is that Disney doesn't actually own the distribution rights to Episodes 1-6. Fox owns the rights to those movies, and will always own the rights to those 6 movies.

I'm really finding it hard to get all the praise on this video... it just feels completely out of place for me even considering they used somewhat light scenes from 3(!) Star Wars movies to suit the music (and by that I mean "try"); you could basically do that much better with hundreds of movies except Star Wars is set in space so there's your similarity.... but hey, like they say in my country, it's better to fall in grace than have any grace at all...

PS: I am actually excited about

I think you're missing the point....what's great is that they take something and cut it in a way to make it "light and comedic". You're right, you can do that with any movie....technically the darker the better, because it's just that more impressive with the editing.

All this made me think of is imagine if Disney made a Star Wars/Marvel mash up later down the line.

As my buddy said after I showed him earlier, sometimes the internet gets it right. This is one of this times. Spectacular.

This is pretty awesome. The major problem with it, like many trailers- is that it gives too much away. Especially the destruction of the 2nd Death Star.
