The Force has awakened in Peter Quill, thanks to this brilliant fan-made mash-up video. The work from YouTuber Alex Luthor sees Guardians of the Galaxy collide with J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens as the video cuts together footage from Marvel’s space opera with the various Star Wars trailers we’ve seen so far.
Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord answers the words of Maz Kanata (Lupita Nyong’o), wields a lightsaber, and commands the Millennium Falcon, while Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) replaces Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) as the disciple of Thanos. No Vader, but Thanos.
You have to say, it’s a remarkably skilful piece of editing from Luthor on YouTube so we can tip our caps to him and say well played, sir.
Is this an indication of the possibility of a crossover? How awesome would that be? Or would it be disastrous? Hmmm, probably a bit of both. Check out the Star Wars-Guardians mashup in the video above.
