When the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released, the collective geek consciousness oohed and awed and with every passing second. Until, of course, fans got a glimpse of the now infamous lightsaber redesign.
Popular opinion is split on the hilted lightsaber, ranging from enthusiasm to unbridled disgust.
Mr.TVCow’s YouTube channel has taken the concept of strange lightsaber designs to a new level in a recently uploaded video which spoofs the snow streaked faceoff in The Force Awakens’ trailer.
In the video, the two combatants prepare to square off against one another in a battle to the death. Each fighter, however, seems much more intent on making their lightsaber appear bigger and badder than their oppenets. The satire is well thought out and enjoyable – the perfect laugh for any and all Star Wars nerds.
