This is what Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back would look like as a Bond film

Skywalker. Luke Skywalker. 

You're right, we've never pondered at this particular mash-up either; British spies and deep space fantasy wars don't hold an awful lot in common.

And yet, with Disney looking to push a Star Wars film out every year between now and forever, the saga of Jedi v Sith could someday rival Bond's 24-and-counting outings. 

So perhaps the Star Wars films could learn something from 007's credit roll? It's an idea that appeals to video editor Kurt Rauffer, who's crafted a piece of brilliance with this new opening for 1980's The Empire Strikes Back.

Here's hoping we never see the day when Star Wars is in need of a 'gritty reboot'.
