March 23, 2017 “Rogue One” and “A New Hope” – together at last!

It was bound to happen, and the results are pretty awesome.

A fan has spliced together the ending of Rogue One with the beginning of A New Hope for the ultimate Star Wars mash-up (we’re not counting anything with Sy Snootles in it…).

Now we can watch the uninterrupted sequence of stolen data tapes being transferred from imperial archives to the rebel forces led by Princess Leia – in both CGI and human-actor form.

Gareth Edwards directed Rogue One as a partial homage to the original film, so they mesh really well together. Only complaint? Where’s Jar Jar?!
