Man, this took way longer than I thought it would. Hats off to all the people at Lucasfilm who have to animate lightsabers. I feel your pain. True, you probably use the latest version of rotoscoping technology in your work, but still-- it's a hard job.

Our story begins a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

I have a bad feeling about this

it ain't like dusting crops, girlie

a master of evil

you aren't my father

your kung fu is good

I am altering your skull.  Pray I don't alter it any further.

the unmanning backslash

BOOM!!  Shake-shake da ROOM!!

Professor Trelawney, what does my palm say?

next Sith apprentice-- Darth Quaalude
