As far as movie trailers go, the new one for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story that was released last week is one of the best we’ve seen in awhile. It captures the look and feel of the earlier Star Wars films, but also modernizes things enough to make it look distinctly like a modern blockbuster.

So naturally, someone decided to make an Empire trailer in the style of Rogue One and the end result is pitch perfect. Created by Youtuber Medley Weaver, this reimagining uses scenes from the fifth episode in the Star Wars saga and gives it a Rogue One style cut, complete with the foreboding music from the trailer.
