That’s right, I said it. A fan made Star Wars video is better than all three prequels, even the one with Darth Maul. Everybody knows that the original Star Wars trilogy was a work of art that made the term Space Opera relatable, while the last three were more of “I’ll watch them if I have nothing better to do” quality. Jeremy Messersmith decided that the best way to pay homage to the older movies was to make a short video featuring key scenes from the original trilogy. What makes his video so great is how he perfectly catches the nostalgic value of the series with his paper animations. Perhaps the best part of this video is seeing an adorable paper Chewbacca choke Lando Calrissian while a dismantled C-3PO looks on in shock. All of the paper facial expressions are priceless. The music is what really brings the video together. The original song, Tatooine, is also performed by Jeremy Messersmith. It is calm, relaxing, and reminds us of better times, before we knew who Jar Jar Binks was. Enjoy the video below.
