The honest trailer for the original Star Wars makes its dissatisfaction with George Lucas’ tinkering to the series well known from the start, so much so that it refuses to call the film A New Hope. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to still love about the original’s iconic… well, everything.

Screen Junkies’ latest honest trailer takes both a nostalgically fueled look back at the film that started it all, as well as a less forgiving account of its lack of female characters and “the lightsaber battle where two old geezers poke at each other.” At the very least, their passion is on display when it comes to the debate, or non-debate in this case, of whether Han shot first.

Watch the trailer above as it attempts to question some of the stranger aspects of the film, what Darth Vader’s legacy would have been had David Prowse’s voice been used, and whether “Hayden Christensen’s acting choices were intentional” in the prequel films.
