Have you ever wanted to watch all six Star Wars films in under three hours? Ever wondered if Lucas hid Easter eggs only viable when double-exposing certain movies? Two months ago, YouTuber "marcus" (Marcus Rosentrater, senior illustrator for FX's series, Archer) teased a super-mashup of all six Star Wars films with this nine-minute sample. The entire video, now released in it's two-hour-twenty-two-minute glory is oddly watchable and possibly fit for its own gallery show as seen in the curated screenshots below.
The result of the mashup is really pretty lovely, a mix of potent cyan shadows and orange-tinted highlights, accentuated by layers and layers of color grading. While I'm not sure I'd watch the entire film(s) start-to-finish, I had a really great time jumping around the video finding how the action overlapped and wanting to punch through my screen whenever I caught a glimpse of JarJar.
Turns out the only way to make the prequels watchable is by layering them over each other and Episodes IV, V, and VI — who knew?
