As The Force Awakens looms but mere days away, fans the world over will doubtless be spending their week rewatching all which came before in preparation. For the majority of the fanbase, it’s the first half of this rewatch which proves the greatest slog; however, one fan, has produced his very own answer to precisely this problem.
Over the past year, YouTuber JeremyMWest-Esquire has crafted his very own “Anti-Cheese” edits of the three Star Wars prequels, with each of the three films re-edited in order to have their more eyebrow-raising moments removed. Each film contains detailed editing notes on their respective YouTube pages, but – predictably enough – JeremyMWest has indeed removed all references to the existence of Midichlorians.
You can view the Anti-Cheese Edits yourself below, ahead of the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the UK on Thursday, December 17th; and in the US the following day.
