J.J. Abrams is great and all, but come on.
After that prequel trilogy, the idea of more Star Wars movies is kind of ridiculous. And these days, no one does ridiculous better than Wes Anderson. Maybe that's why filmmaker Jonah Feingold decided to muck with the Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens trailer and show us what it might look like had the man behind Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, and The Life Aquatic been handed the reins of this once-great sci-fi franchise.
Feingold has done a fantastic job of Wessing up the much-watched teaser, adding in some groovy French pop and twee touches sure to be missing from the actual Abrams production. Even if The Force Awakens exceeds all expectations and reaffirms our faith in the series, it will almost certainly fall short of the version Anderson could have given us. Imagine Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, and Jeff Goldblum blasting through space, fighting evil with their quirky, neurotic version of the force. Also: Kinks songs.
It's just the kind of reboot Star Wars needs, but sadly, we'll have to settle for the 57 seconds below.
