Watch 'Star Wars' episodes 1, 2 and 3 cut together into a single, more coherent story (All gone, sorry!)

Topher Grace, who is perhaps best known for his role in That '70s Show, once re-cut the new Star Wars trilogy into a single 85-minute film as an experiment to see if he could make the newer films a bit easier to watch. The result has only been shown once, as far as we know, but now you can watch a similar edit of the trilogy online.

This is Turn to the Dark Side: Episode 3.1. It comes in at over two hours, a much longer cut than what Grace is said to have created, but it jettisons much of the worst parts of the films in favor of a faster pace and a more compact story. It's not altogether successful, as there's only so much you can do with the material, but it's an interesting experiment for Star Wars fans.

Give it a watch while you can, you could argue this is a transformative work, but it likely won't be online for long.
