The Star Wars trailer gets a brilliant remix in the style of Wes Anderson

New, 14 comments

What if Star Wars was a bit less serious, a touch more humorous, and a lot more French? Well, it'd look an awful lot like a trailer for a Wes Anderson-directed movie, which is exactly what director Jonah Feingold has produced. Posting his remix of the now week-old Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser, Feingold plays with the tropes that typify Anderson's work — vibrant colors, dry wit, and a levity about serious matters — to completely reset the mood of the new Star Wars film. There's less menace to this imagined adventure and more je ne sais quois. For his part, Anderson has already said that he'd probably make a bad director for a Star Wars film because, as he puts it, "I don’t know if I have all the right action chops."
