Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy mash-up video brings The Force to Marvel
The Force has awakened in Peter Quill, thanks to a new 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 that from the Star Wars trailers.
It’s like something out of Patton Oswalt’s Parks and Recreation fillibuster. 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. He is determined to continue what his master started, even if that means mentally torturing Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper).
Now that Marvel and Lucasfilm both reside within the Mouse House, you never know what could happen with crossovers. Check out the Star Wars-Guardians mashup in the video above.
