You’ll never look at lightsabers the same after watching this reimagined ‘Star Wars’ battle scene – New York Daily News

Forget everything you know about “Star Wars” and feast your eyes — and ears — on this.

Twitter user Josh Billinson became an internet sensation when he shared a clip of a reimagined “Star Wars” lightsaber battle. The scene in question, taken from “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace,” features Darth Maul, Obi Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn.

Billinson edited the video, replacing the whooshing sound fans have come to associate with the iconic weapons with actor Owen Wilson saying, “wow.”

The tweet began making its rounds online on July 14, racking up more than 100,000 retweets in a matter of days. Nearly 3,000 other Twitter users have responded to the tweet, most praising its genius.

“I had a hole in my life and I didn’t know how to fill it but this video was the answer so thank you,” one person wrote.

Billinson hasn’t responded to his viral fame. He briefly returned to Twitter after announcing that he was taking a break for a “relaxing weekend” to share that the video had landed him his own Twitter moment.
