It’s another seven months until Star Wars: The Last Jedi is released, but fans have received an unexpected gift in the form of an amazing mash-up.

Vimeo user Barre Fong spliced together the ending of Rogue One with the beginning of A New Hope.  The ending of Rogue One was set immediately before A New Hope, giving us some backstory into the Rebel Alliance’s fight against the Empire, and showing viewers how the Rebels secured the Death Star plans in the first place.

Watching the two movies side-by-side, the differences are negligible, showing how much care Rogue One director Gareth Edwards took to stay true to the original classic.

Watch the full nine-minute mash-up above.
