Start your morning with a solid recreation of this amazing Star Wars: The Force Awakens scene.


If you count yourself among the millions of Star Wars fans worldwide who went to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you’ll definitely remember this scene from the film, the one people will be referencing for years.

Spoilers for The Force Awakens to follow.

The scene is of course the one in which one of Finn’s former teammates breaks out some anti-Lightsaber tech we hadn’t seen before, to combat the – now part of the resistance – hero. We never learn the Stormtropper’s name, but we cheekily just call him TR-8R.

Here’s YouTube user Adam Pinkman recreating the same scene in GTA 5. Most shots here are identical to those in the original scene, and it’s very well-animated.

The ending is cool, too, and unexpected.
