Kyle Kallgren (of Brows Held High) has created this pretty epic summery of the plot of A New Hope without using a single image or sound from the movie itself, only those that came before and after it.

The mashup covers everything from the 1950’s adventure shorts and war movies that provided direct influences on the 1977 original (yes The Dambusters is in there) to parodies, tv shows, videogames and other examples of the hero’s journey new and old.

It’s an impressive watch and an informative one too (Kyle gives a full list of all the material used at the end for the curious).
