Skyrim Meets Star Wars: The Force Awakens in Brilliant Trailer Mash-Up
Fantasy and Sci-Fi collide in Skyrim Wars: The Thuum Awakens, a mash-up of Bethesda's record-breaking Elder Scrolls game and LucasFilm's record-breaking trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It's essentially a shot for shot remake of the first trailer for JJ Abrams upcoming Star Wars movie, and honestly, it's kind of perfect.
Everything about this trailer made me smile, from the moment when the Skyrim version of Finn pops up onto the screen to the use of a dragon in place of the Millenium Falcon, it's all just so much fun. In fact, I didn't realize quite how much of a utility vehicle the humble Skyrim dragon could be. The video successfully uses dragons as a fleet of X-Wings, with Poe Dameron's look of determination another serious highlight...
The video was created by YouTube user, Yong Yea, who has built something of a name for himself with his Skyrim-themed fan movies. But this isn't the first time that Skyrim and Star Wars have come together. There are some brilliant Star Wars mods for Skyrim, which help you to replace Wood Elves for Sith and standard swords for lightsabers.
