This budget version of the Star Wars trailer is superb

Right, you know we told you this morning that we'd drop the excitement for all new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailers? 

That we were concerned there'd be no unseen footage left to fill its two-hour-or-so runtime? 

Well, we're going back on our word - but you'll be grateful we did.

The budget trailer makers of YouTube channel Dumb Drum have spared no expense (they've literally spent no money, AT-AT all) to recreate April's Force Awakens trailer.

From the DIY special effects to the cardboard back drops that populate many of the scenes, their work is worthy of your attention. Heck, we're hoping they recreate the whole film.

Keep an eye out for the dog at 1:26...
