Chris Hardwick IS Luke in a Homemade Star Wars Death Star Trench Run

hardwicklukeswededA sweded version of the Death Star trench run? Okay, sure. A sweded version of the Death Star trench run starring our own Chris Hardwick as Luke Skywalker? YES. Add in Jonah Ray and you have today’s Video that Wins the Internet, from Homemade Movies at Cinefix. It’s shot-for-shot, made with trash barrels, toys, and cardboard. Lots of cardboard. Needless to say, the more cardboard, the better the video.

And here’s the side-by-side, shot-by-shot comparison:

    I haven’t watched the side by side yet, but it looked spot on to me (don’t ask how many times I’ve watched it)

    I must say, I love that Chris even does that odd shoulder roll that Luke does. Nice one. Oh, and sweded “Han” is still a hottie 🙂

  2. Megan says:

    Awe, this was adorable. 🙂

  3. Richard Woloski says:

    That was GREAT! How long did it take?
    I would love to see how you tackle the Jawa canyon scene. Good luck!

  4. Beaucifer says:

    That is Amaze-balls. I really dig that and hope you guys do more, not just Star Wars. Next time I’d like to something from Indiana Jones.

    a very good sweeded scene!

    @Keith: “where Jonah stuffs Chris inside Matt.”…. what you made me mentally picture, i can not unmentally picture. damn ye!

  8. Keith says:

    Better idea: Need to do scene on Hoth where Jonah stuffs Chris inside Matt.

  9. JetpackBlues says:

    Luke, at that speed, will you be able to pull out in time?

    Sorry about the mess.

    You came in that thing? You’re braver than I thought!

    Most excellent! Need to do the scene on Hoth where Han stuffs Luke inside a Tauntaun.
