The Arizona Wildcats turned to Star Wars for their latest hype video for the upcoming football season.
It’s a time-tested move: turn to Star Wars for your sports videos.
Julian Edelman and the New England Patriots turned it into Star Pats earlier this spring, the Minnesota Twins and Phil Hughes remade the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer and numerous teams found ways to enjoy “Star Wars Day” on May 4.
The Arizona Wildcats are the latest, taking the audio from a Force Awakens trailer into a hype video for the upcoming football season. The audio is literally the same from the trailer, and the video just intersperses various featuring Anu Solomon, Nick Wilson and various Wildcats-related scenes.
Awesome for sure, but come on—no Rich Rodriguez as Han Solo? Now that's a missed opportunity.
