Like many fans who are preparing for the arrival of The Force Awakens this Friday, there’s a good chance that you decided to embark on a marathon viewing of the Star Wars saga in an effort to get yourself reacquainted with the Jedis, wookiees, scoundrels, droids, and other denizens of that galaxy far, far away. But we also know that takes a lot of time — time most people don’t have.
But if you didn’t get a chance to have a Star Wars marathon before the debut of the new film, and you’re just too busy to devote yourself to over twelve hours of viewing before the big day arrives, we’ve got a handy new solution for you. A YouTube user by the name of Michael McNulty has decided to compile all six existing Star Wars films into one feature length video, all running simultaneously at the exact same time.
After the initial cacophony of John Williams’ iconic score blaring through all six different iterations, the video becomes something of a jumble of laser blasts, lightsaber noises, and wookiee growls. But it’s kind of fascinating once you view it as something of an art installation. Well, that’s what the videos creator refers to it as anyway, and who are we to argue? (We’ll take anything to explain away The Phantom Menace.)
You can watch the entire Star Wars Saga compilation video above, and you can let us know if you made it all the way through in the comments below.
