Brilliant Fake Star Wars Episode VII Footage

SPOILER ALERT! is what we would be shouting if the following piece contained any actual Star Wars Episode VII footage. As it is, we've got a rather wonderful spoof for you alongside some proper Star Wars news. Don't say we're not good to you.

The work of YouTuber Frank Wunderlich, this excellent piece of photoshopping and video editing provides insight into what an earthbound Imperial space port might actually look like: AT-ATs and AT-STs lumber around the Frankfurt Airport, while a vast Star Destroyer hums in the background.

An obvious sign of the video's forgery is that neither Crystal Clarke and Pip Anderson are anywhere in sight. Disney has announced that the two little-known talents are the latest cast members to be added to the Star Wars galaxy. No details have been given on their roles, but it would look like Crystal fills November's casting call for a "beautiful, smart, and athletic" 17-to-18-year-old woman, while Pip fits the bill of the "handsome, smart, and athletic" 19-to-23-year-old man.

Now, quench your thirst for Star Wars action with this delicious spoof.
