Star Wars Episode VII Tribute: The Father’s Sins (Amazing Video!!!)

If you’re not following Medley Weaver on YouTube, you’re missing out on some truly fantastic and creative videos.  This tribute to Episode VII focuses on the Father/Child aspect of the Star Wars saga (as we don’t yet know exactly Rey’s lineage).  Weaving together beautifully shots from the Original Trilogy and The Force Awakens, the video (set to music from Gears of War 3 if you wondered) is a powerful tribute to the generational aspect of Star Wars.  Seeing Han and Luke as young men, then grizzled and aged contending with Rey and Kylo Ren, then going even further back to Luke dealing with Anakin, shows the family dynamic at the heart of the saga.  That extends now to the audience.  People my age, who were children at the time of the original movies, are now sharing the resurgence of the franchise with their own children, and in that way art echoes life.  Stories bind generations together, and Medley does a superb job of capturing that aspect of Star Wars in this video.  Bravo!
