Topher Grace Creates ‘Mega Trailer’ for Star Wars Saga
Collaborating with editor Jeff Yorkes, actor Topher Grace has combined pieces of all 10 live-action Star Wars films, including Solo and Rogue One, to create a five-minute “mega-trailer” celebrating the franchise.
“Why don’t studios make ‘mega-trailers,’ tying all the movies of one franchise together, reminding you why you fell in love in the first place?” Yorkes wrote on Twitter. “Well, that’s what my pal @tophergrace and I thought…”
As the best trailers do, this one tells its own mini-story and uses editing to create an emotional impact. Piecing together footage from the films as well as deleted scenes and, of course, John Williams’ iconic score, the video uses the prequels and standalone films to accentuate moments from the original and sequel trilogies. It shows off the full breadth and scope of the Star Wars saga, while following the through-line of Luke’s journey and the Jedi.
