Hilarious Animation Imagines Old Star Wars Characters Meeting New Star Wars Characters

Did you see the new Star Wars yet? Of course you did. You probably watched it twice (and if you didn’t watch it yet, stop reading). It was great, right? Such a fun time. Did the franchise good. A heck of a show. Until you realize (stop reading now if you still haven’t seen) that the characters and the storyline are basically the same as before! It’s just recycled awesomeness. Awesomely recycled, of course.

Dorkly pokes fun of the characters by imagining the old Star Wars character meeting the new characters and it’s a riot. Rey and Luke, Han and Obi-Wan, etc.

Zelda did it!

Yes, the movies’ plotlines were similar, but I really think it’s done on purpose.

POSSIBLE SPOILERS

J.J. Abrams has chosen the safe path. He could’ve gone for a completely new cast (like in Ep I and Ep IV), but since it had been so long since an old SW-movie got released and the fanbase was just so big, he decided to pay an homage to the old SW-movies.

In short: SW VII has been made purely as a fan service, where they start killing off old characters slowly, which already happened with Han Solo. I think J.J. Abrams wanted to create a good Star Wars movie, without breaking too many standards that all the people got used to. Pretty sure those big changes are planned for VIII.

I’m also pretty convinced that people would’ve hated the movie if none of the original cast returned and the movie went for a completely new direction, since then it wouldn’t be “Star Wars as we know it!”.

I think it was smart to re-introduce the franchise to the cinemas with a soft launch, if you could call it that. People see stuff they recognise, get time to get to know the new cast and then hell will break loose in VIII.

But then again, that’s just my two imperial credits :)
