Awesome: <i>Game of Thrones</i> with lightsabers
Jul 9th, 2012

There's only one thing cooler than the climactic Game of Thrones swordfight between Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Eddard "Ned" Stark (Sean Bean), and it's from a galaxy far, far away.

With a bit of digital magic, the season one Thrones duel is now a Star Wars-inspired lightsaber fight to the death in an awesomely edited fan-made mash-up clip.

Posted by Joel935M on YouTube, the clip is his "first attempt" at "rotoscoping" animation, which involves tracing over real footage frame by frame.

He shows real promise — but let's hope George Lucas doesn't rope him in for another round of dreaded "director's cuts" of Star Wars. Shudder.
