Watch: German Airport Becomes Home To Epic ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Fan Footage

Watch: German Airport Becomes Home To Epic 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Fan Footage

If YouTube user Frank Wunderlich was trying to get onto the radar of “Star Wars” fans and Hollywood types, he certainly accomplished that mission. Last week, he posted a video of something interesting he saw on his flight home to Germany from the United States, and it has since gone viral.

“Looks like the story of ‘Star Wars’ plays on Earth too in the next episode,” he wrote in the text accompanying his video. “I took these pictures on my flight back from the States to Germany at the Frankfurt Airport. Seems like the biggest German airport plays a key role as an imperial starport in the new episode — there have just been imperial forces at the scene. Maybe the Rebelboys hide in Berlin…”

And what follows is a pretty clever, if brief, video showing Imperial Shuttles, AT-STs and a giant AT-AT all hanging around the airport and tarmac, like they belong there. It’s well done, the effects are pretty seamless and it’s cut nicely as a fake in-the-moment travelogue. Somebody give this guy a call. Watch below. [THR]
