The internet has allowed fans to distribute a wealth of videos dissecting their favorite films that otherwise wouldn’t exist. Sometimes the OCD of obsessive fandom results in something so insane that you just need to see it just to know someone spent the time to create it. YouTube user suckerpinch decided to take Star Wars Episode VI: A New Hope and reedit the movie sorted by alphabetically by word. Why? We’re not sure. But the resulting 43 minute video is mesmerizing. Watch the Star Wars Alphabet video embedded after the jump alongside some fun facts discovered by suckerpinch in the process. For example, did you know the word “lightsaber” appears in the film only once but the word “the” appears 368 times?
