Hilarious Honest Trailer Reveals How 'The Force Awakens' Is Basically The First 'Star Wars'

"Star Wars: A Familiar Hope."

YouTube’s Screen Junkies are back with a new honest trailer, and this time, they’re taking on 2015’s biggest blockbuster, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

The video, which has been watched more than 2.2 million times to date, is a no holds barred retelling of the space opera in which protagonist Rey (“how is she so good at everything?!”); villain Kylo Ren (“he acts like a goth kid who can’t find his eyeliner”); and even Han Solo (“[he looks] really old”) cannot escape criticism.

The movie’s plot gets particularly skewered in the clip.

“Gear up for a film so desperate to re-capture the magic of the first ‘Star Wars,’ it practically is the first ‘Star Wars,’” quipped the voice-over, referring to the 1977 film “Star Wars: A New Hope.”

Watch the entire honest trailer above, but be warned, it’s not for the spoiler-averse.
