Silent Night by Chewbacca

Silent Night by Chewbacca

If Film Theory How It Should Have Ended is to be believed, Chewbacca played the long con. Over the decades, he’s used his limited screen time in Star Wars movies to piece together a holiday tune. One of those things that’s funnier the second time around.

K-2SO’s Rogue Twos

In the must-watch Star Wars prequel Rogue One, Alan Tudyk voiced the Imperial droid-turned-Rebel sidekick K-2SO. But as Diego Luna revealed on Conan, Tudyk also acted out K’s scenes alongside Diego Luna. And that led to a lot of awkward moments.

For his latest video, Devin Supertramp replicated the classic speeder bike chase from Return of the Jedi – but instead of flying precariously between giant redwoods, they did the stunt on water, using specially modified Jetovator jetpacks. Duct tape ftw.

Rogue One Film Theory
