Watch all six Star Wars movies in just three minutes

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is nearly upon us, so you better brush up on your knowledge of the Force.

A YouTube video condenses the entire Star Wars hexalogy into just three minutes.

The short was created by Eclectic Method, and summarises all six Star Wars movies for posterity.

It’s a great way to refresh your memory of the epic space opera ahead of The Force Awakens.

Newbies to the franchise can also use it as an easy-to-chew catch-up – although that’s totally cheating.

The UK release date for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is 17 December, with the US release pegged for 18 December.

It’s the seventh film in the core Star Wars franchise, and takes place roughly 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983).

JJ Abrams is directing, co-producing, and co-writing the flick, which will star: Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, and John Boyega.

The Force Awakens is the first of a planned trilogy that was announced as a result of Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm in late 2012.
