Topher Grace is not only the actor who starred on That ’70s Show and more recently in the Oscar-winning movie BlacKkKlansman. He also does editing work, and his most recent project was a big one. Collaborating with editor Jeff Yorkes, Grace created a five-minute “mega-trailer” for Star Wars that combines footage from all 10 live-action Star Wars movies, including Rogue One and Solo.
“10 movies. 2 nerds. 1 weekend (when our wives were out of town). Enjoy…” Grace wrote on Twitter. Yorkes added, “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? Wouldn’t that kick ass?! Well, that’s what my pal Topher Grace and I thought…”
Titled Star Wars: Always, the trailer is slick with its use of memorable scenes and music that, even when stitched together in this non-traditional format, combine together nicely. It follows Luke’s journey as its through-line, mostly. Check it out below.
The next Star Wars movie is Episode IX, which hits theatres in December. The film recently finished filming. “It feels impossible, but today wrapped photography on Episode IX,” director JJ Abrams said earlier in February. “There is no adequate way to thank this truly magical crew and cast. I’m forever indebted to you all.”
Beyond Episode IX, which is the third and final instalment in the new trilogy that began with The Force Awakens, Lucasfilm is producing a new trilogy from Rian Johnson. Outside of that, there will be a new Star Wars TV show called The Mandalorian.
