Star Wars Trilogy Gets Masterful Fan-Made Trailer

YouTube channel Medley Weaver has uploaded a fan-made trailer for the original Star Wars trilogy, in the style of modern trailers.

The 1977 trailer for Star Wars was infamously clunky, featuring unfinished special effect shots and inexplicable voice-over narration (“A billion years in making”).

This modern trailer, uploaded to the net in April, features clips from all three of the original films (Star Wars, also known as A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi). It is scored by the song Twelve Titans by Artifice, which also featured in the trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015.
