How to (almost) watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens online right now

So you want to experience Star Wars: The Force Awakens again, but you don’t want to have to buy another movie ticket. While we’re well aware of the torrents and illegal downloads out there in the wild, we’re not about that today. Today we’re presenting a 9-minute video which takes bits of all of the publicly available bits of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and crams them into one big (chronologically correct) reminder of why this is now the most successful film in the history of the world.

The following video contains a massive amount of scenes from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as well as a few that never made it to the movie. In this video you’ll find alternate takes, cut scenes, and even a clip taken from a virtual reality presentation that depicts a scene that was never filmed in the first place.

This video was constructed before the movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released. As such, there are some scenes that are just a BIT out of order. While we did make some executive decisions with a couple clips for pacing (like Han handing a blaster to Rey), we also made some errors that, by all means, seemed to fit at the time.

See if you can count how many clips aren’t in the correct place in this video – if the whole video is supposed to be in 100% film-correct chronological order, that is.

Another way you’ll be able to re-live the experience you had whilst viewing Star Wars: The Force Awakens is to extend it. To do this, we recommend hitting SlashGear’s Star Wars portal and/or heading to the collection we’ve gathered below.
