"Game Of Thrones" With Lightsabers Is The Crossover We All Deserved
15 August 2017, 15:05
Still waiting for the next Star Wars? All it takes is a bit of VFX know-how to put lightsabers in the hands of your favourite fighters from Westeros.
People who have been on YouTube since the early days will know how much we love a good duel with lightsabers. Because budding VFX artists everywhere have stuck the glowing blades on top of everything; from wizard wands in "Harry Potter" to sword fights in "Kill Bill", every major pop culture character has had their shot at being a Jedi.
So with the latest season of "Game Of Thrones" giving us some superb sword scenes, it was only a matter of time before some of it got the "Star Wars" treatment. This edit, by YouTube user Omid G, has pulled in over 1.5 million views in just a couple of days.
The video puts lightsabers in the hands of Arya Stark and Brienne of Tarth.
It's not hard to imagine Arya going through a little bit of Jedi-style training on Braavos; but giving her sword Needle a sick purple glow to the blade is the icing on the cake of an already awesome sword scene.
