Toy Story 2 is synonymous for its Empire Strikes Back homage when Buzz Lightyear learns the sad truth that the Evil Emperor Zerg is actually his father. While that may not be the case entirely, what we do know is that the folks over at the Nukazooka YouTube channel created a masterpiece that must be seen to be believed. Somehow, they were able to take the Toy Story Franchise and Star Wars and blend them together to make an incredible video. This video is every Toy Story and Star Wars fans dream.
Check out the entire video below and make sure you wait until the ending. You won’t be disappointed…
The Amount of Work Put Into The Project Is Far Out!
These fans must have had such a fun time crafting this video. The amount of passion, work, and dedication it must have taken to make this cinematic masterpiece should not be underestimated.
Just read the quote that’s listed on their page by the Creator:
“This was a bit of a passion project for me. I love both Toy Story and Star Wars, so it was a dream to combine the two. Hope everyone enjoyed it!”
I certainly did and I hope you all did too. The creativity in this video should not be undervalued. I mean, just take a look at some of these effects:
In that scene, the wrist blaster from Buzz Lightyear’s arm is extremely powerful which takes Darth Vader by complete surprise. Throughout the video, the two continue an epic battle that promises a fight for the ages! The action absolutely delivers as Buzz actually puts up a fight against an evil Sith Lord.
Vader even uses his famous Force choke on the poor guy:
You can’t help but feel bad for this guy as he’s being pulverized into the side of a hill. Vader of course mentions the full power of the Dark Side while also quoting Buzz’s famous phrase in a menacing tone: “To infinity and beyond!”
The result isn’t surprising as Vader ends up winning by igniting Buzz’s jet pack sending his (dead?) body into outer space..
But The Ending Is Pure Genius
After crash landing on earth, we see a shadowed cowboy figure approach him who lifts up Buzz’s foot to reveal his owner. Shortly after, the cowboy does the same and realizes that they belong to the same owner. That cowboy of course is none other than Woody himself.
Not only does Woody take Buzz home, but he also makes sure to have some extra batteries on hand. Thankfully, he had some to spare and places them in Buzz’s jet pack. This was a fantastic ending to a wonderful tribute to both Star Wars and Toy Story Fans. The way the creators were able to meld the universes together was a stroke of genius. I cannot wait to see what other videos they have in store for us!
