If Star Wars was given a True Detective-style intro

There's been a disturbance in the TV signal.

In the same week True Detective’s much maligned second season drew to a close comes this excellent mashup of the first season’s credits and the cast of the Star Wars universe, created by the bods at Star Wars Minute.

Combining virile posing from gunslingers like Boba Fett with the sunbaked, noir-ish grading, wispy soundtrack and headless visual juxtapositions, it gives one of the geekiest films ever made a new veneer of cool. Then again, between bounty hunters, shootouts, and existential questions about what separates good from evil, perhaps the worlds of True Detective and Star Wars aren’t as different as we thought…

Darth isn’t quite the Yellow King, but he’s not far off.
