That Game of Thrones swordfight, but with lightsabers [Spoilers]

[Beware, spoilers!] This is an article about last week’s episode of Game of Thrones. If you haven’t seen it, don’t read on.

One of the highlights of Game of Thrones season six, episode three was that epic swordfight between a young Ned Stark and Arthur Dayne, Sword of the Morning. But however awesome it may have been, there’s always room for improvement, right?

By the grace of the seven gods, a Reddit user has edited footage from the fight, replacing the swords with lightsabers. And it looks seriously cool:

The Star Wars-style video comes courtesy of Reddit user requiem1394, who says he’s already working on turning the entire fight into an extended lightsaber battle.

“I have the whole project file open and have started various parts, but there is just so much work to do,” requiem1394 writes, explaining that the editing process involves modifying the footage frame-by-frame in Adobe After Effects.

Apparently the entire process for this short clip took “eight hours of very precise clicking”. Great work, requiem – now click faster!
