If you’re like me, you’ve watched the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer several dozen times and will continue to do so until the next one comes out. By now, you may know every second of the trailer just as well as the original trilogy and you’d be open to seeing something new. Like clockwork, the Internet obliges.
Several different parodies of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer have appeared online but two stand out above the rest. First is a super impressive shot by shot recreation in Lego. Second is J.J. Abrams lens flare edition. And third is a “George Lucas Special Edition” version that, much like the first trailer, brought tears to my eyes. This time though it wasn’t nostalgia, it was because I was laughing so hard.
Here’s the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer in Lego thanks to Snooperking.

As cool as the Lego one is, and as funny the lens flare one is, I love the George Lucas version. It just gets so incredibly ridiculous that by that final shot, I was giddy with laughter. And that Sy Snootles cameo? Brilliant.
Here’s the official description of The Force Awakens:
