In honor of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, here’s a little mini-throwback to some talented Stormtroopers. At least, even if they can’t hit their enemies, Stormtroopers can dance.

From Rogue to Hope

Now that is just awesome. This guy spliced the ending of Rogue One with the opening of A New Hope, and you can see just how much attention to detail the Rogue One had to ensure seamlessness in its connection to A New Hope. They really could be just one movie.

I think it’s time for a little original Star Wars trilogy marathon.

Carrie Fisher had suffered a heart attack sometime last week, but reports indicated she was already in stable condition. Now, just a few days later, she’s gone.
