Watch: 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Teaser Trailer Gets Sweded
Even though the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a minute and a half long, there's just about as much blackness on screen as there is real footage in the trailer. Therefore, it makes it fairly easy to make a low budget, sweded version of the trailer. And that's exactly what Dumb Drum (via FlickeringMyth) has done, complete with some crafty cardboard artistry. There's some impressive moving cardboard elements used for the quick shot of the ball droid BB-8, not to mention the moneyshot of the Millennium Falcon flying through the desert. Just a fun video to keep the Star Wars hype alive. Watch!
Here's the sweded version of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer from Dumb Drum:
