Topher Grace Edits Star Wars New Trilogy to 85 Minutes

Apparently, if you cut out almost all of Count Dooku, many of the ham-fisted romance scenes, all of the political scenes, Boba Fett, Jango Fett, General Grievous, Jar Jar Binks, and all but 5 minutes of the first movie, the new trilogy clocks in at a spruce 85 minutes. Topher Grace did all the work and showcased at a semi-secret screening during the week.

IGN says it’s not perfect, but I know my curiosity is piqued. He made the project as a fan and just to see what it would look like, so we aren’t likely to see his cut anytime soon or at all. Topher Grace further pitches that other should people should try it similarly with other films and see what happens. I can’t think of something as high profile as Star Wars that would garner as much attention. This may come out to just an exercise in the hypothetical, but I’d pay about 10 bucks to see that cut in a theater. Time to go to my wishing rock. Hey, wishing rock! Make it happen!
