Watch: A Video Tribute to Porkins and the Rebel Pilots of 'Star Wars'
"Eject!" "I can hold it…" "Pull up!" "No I'm alri-" Need a laugh? This is a good one if you're a Star Wars fan. Scott Collura and Khalilah Alston have edited a Star Wars Tribute supercut video of all the deaths of the Rebel pilots from the three original Star Wars movies (none of the prequels). Aw, all those poor pilots! They just couldn't hold on. This is really just a fun reminder of how many brave souls flying for the Rebels lost their lives fighting the Empire, those dirty evil rotten scum! Darth Vader is the menace behind it all. One of the great heroes is, of course, the infamous Jek Porkins - seen above. The video jumps to Empire Strikes Back and the Hoth pilots around two minutes in, there's quite a bit to it in just under five minutes. Enjoy!
The description from IGN for "Star Wars - The Tragic Fate of the Rebel Pilot": Nobody ever said fighting the Empire would be easy. To the brave pilots of the Rebel Alliance, we salute you with this video tribute. Good job. The video was made by Scott Collura and Khalilah Alston, as tipped on Twitter. Now I want to watch these original movies all over again! Of course. I hope we get some good X-Wing action in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which it looks like we will featuring Poe Dameron (played by Oscar Isaac) as an X-Wing pilot. You can find out much more info about Rebel pilots on the Wookieepedia.
