Is there a piece of science fiction technology that's more iconic than the Lightsaber? Sure, some might argue that the likes of the sonic screwdriver or Iron Man's armor are the ultimate in sci-fi tech, but they'd be wrong. Nothing inspires awe and excitement in both adults and children quite like a lightsaber battle. While these neon-fueled duels aren't necessarily the heart of the Star Wars franchise, they're still one of its key components. This is a sentiment that is beautifully summed up in a new trailer for the Star Wars saga by UK broadcaster, Sky.

The trailer isn't just the best montage of lightsaber battles I've ever seen, it's also one of the most compelling Star Wars trailers, period.



There's a lot to admire in this trailer, but it's that perfect transition from Episode 3 to Episode 4 that really steals the show. Seriously, even on the 10th run through it just doesn't get old.
