Star Wars A New Hope

May the Fourth is here! As a pun on the iconic line, “May the Force be with you,” this is the best day to celebrate the glory of Star Wars day and go down a rabbit hole of thousands of memes, GIFs, and videos that populate the Internet. From riffs on the Force Awakens to the nostalgia of A New Hope, here are 10 to celebrate the world’s most awesome intergalactic pop culture institution.


Luke Is All By Himself

The end of The Force Awakens saw Rey paying a visit to Luke on a remote island to give him his lightsaber. He has been living on this island for God knows how long. That said, someone decided to take full advantage of this moment and add a little Celine Dion.

 


Rey’s Nightmare

When Rey touches Luke’s lightsaber in the basement of Maz Kanata’s bar, she has crazy fever dream which was a little foreboding and gives us a peek into her past. Here is an edited version of that scene…with a young whiny Anakin and Jar Jar. It gets pretty scary.

 


Honest Trailer for the first Star Wars

Honest trailers are always fun, but how they poke fun at Star Wars (they refuse to call it A New Hope), makes this particular trailer one of the best.

 


Star Wars and Hamilton mashup: “Luke the Son of Anakin”

Hamilton is the hottest musical right now. Star Wars is having a strong resurgence in pop culture. Combining the two was bound to happen.

 


Undercover Boss: Kylo Ren

Kylo Ren is probably the most menacing Star Wars villain since his grandfather. As a prominent figure of the First Order, he is probably a very difficult boss to deal with. This Saturday Night Live sketch with Adam Driver illustrates that in the best way ever.

 


Darth Vader Recording GPS Directions

Ever wonder how it would be if Darth Vader was giving you directions on your GPS. Well, wonder no more. And after watching this video, I’m sure you’ll be questioning your pronunciation of “roundabout”.

 


The Path Of A Lightsaber

Out of all the lightsabers featured in the Star Wars universe, Luke’s probably has the best story. From The Phantom Menace to The Force Awakens, here’s a very well-done video that traces the history of Luke’s prized possession.

 


The Force Awakens: How It Should Have Ended

I liked the end of The Force Awakens, but this ending would have taken the movie to a whole new level.

 


The Tonight Show‘s Acapella Performance Of the Star Wars Theme

Jimmy Fallon and The Roots teamed up with and the cast of The Force Awakens to perform one of the funnest renditions of John Williams’s iconic Star Wars theme. Just to see Harrison Ford sing makes it all worthwhile.

 


Ultimate Franchise Trailer

In a little over three minutes, this mega-trailer features all the Star Wars movies and captures the fantastical magic that makes this franchise one of the best (if not THE BEST) in cinematic history.
