We live in a pretty interesting time. Movie trailers are almost as anticipated as the films they represent. Thanks to the magic of the internet, we are able to watch them over and over and over. We can sit and pick them apart and try to figure out what each little image means and try to glean as much as we can from just over a minute of film footage. It’s really a lot of fun. This kind of thing is magnified when the movie is a major title like Star Wars or Avengers. Fans of either franchise will spend hours trying to piece together a 2 hour plus film just from 30 seconds of footage. It’s always fun to see how accurate we usually aren’t when it comes to these things.
One thing that has come out of our instant and continuous access to movie trailers is the art form of mocking these big time trailers. After the latest Star Wars trailer dropped, we saw numerous versions of it on YouTube. Some of them were pretty creative and clever. Others were just kind of lame. If you have been scouring the internet to find the best version of the latest Star Wars trailer, let me help you out. I have found it. This is it. It is the best Star Wars trailer out there. It may even be better than the actual Star Wars trailer. This particular video comes to us from Mashable, and it is just incredible. Why? Because, well, just watch and see.
There is nothing more fun, or cuter than hearing little kids dub these trailers. As a dad, stuff like this always hits me right in the feels. I can’t listen to these kids reading these lines without a smile coming to my face. What a brilliant idea. Plus, little kids love hearing other little kids, so this makes the trailer that much more accessible for little ones. They will be more excited about it than the original, just because it is little kids like them. What’s even better than the kids reading the lines is when the kids do the sound effects too. That is just brilliant.
So, if you’re having a bad day, and you need a pick me up, watch this trailer a half-dozen times. In fact, i challenge you to watch this video and not have a smile on your face by the end. And, if you need even more convincing, let me introduce you to the same folks doing the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer. 100 % guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Check it out:
There you have it. Hopefully, tonight, I have spread a little joy in the world via some pretty geeky movies, and some kids.
