Even before “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” hit in December, we’d already seen countless homages to the film.
There have been low-budget and Lego remakes of the trailer. The US Navy made its own version of the trailer. Creative fans also gave the infamous “Star Wars Holiday Special” a <a href="http://redirect.viglink.com?key=11fe087258b6fc0532a5ccfc924805c0&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cnet.com%2Fnews%2Finfamous-star-wars-holiday-special-gets-force-awakens-parody%2F%22%3E"Force Awakens" makeover.
Now that fans have seen the full-length “The Force Awakens,” some have taken their appreciation a step further and remade their favorite parts of the film using action figures in the stop-motion tribute “Star Wars: The Toys Awaken.”
In this video, made by YouTube user Probot Toy Cinema and animated by Damon Wellner, we see all our favorite characters in action. Rey, Finn, Kylo Ren, BB-8, Han Solo, Chewbacca and every character in the film is represented by their Hasbro toy in this “Force Awakens” tribute.
The stop-motion animation is incredibly well-executed in the video, which posted Monday. It almost makes me want to get out my beloved vintage Chewbacca action figure and make my own YouTube movies.
Keep in mind, if you have yet to see “The Force Awakens,” the video below does contain spoilers.
