…is a GoPro strapped to a Jedi. Work those lightsaber katas!
Ingenious and entertaining parody of the usual GoPro extreme sports-type videos. Via slashfilm:
As you can see, it starts simple with the Jedi taking on some of the Empire’s least accurate soldiers, but then he ends up facing some speeder bikes, a TIE Fighter and an AT-AT, all before some X-Wings and the Millennium Falcon come through to save the day.
While it’s cool to see this play out in live-action video format, with some decent special effects too, I can’t help but think that this Jedi is on the verge of turning to the dark side. Not only is he recording his encounters with the Empire (for whose enjoyment?), but he dispatches with that TIE Fighter pilot in a pretty aggressive way, after he’s already incapacitated the ship. Just seems a little excessive for a Jedi.
Ah well, when you have Jedi space magic powers, why not.
The video was made by talented youtuber Bill Parker (billywarp1), who is based in the United States, and according to the Daily Mail, attends Taylor University in Indiana. Several behind the scenes videos are also available on his channel. Check them out!
