If True Detective did Star Wars…

These True Detective-inspired Star Wars opening credits will make you pine for a galaxy far, far away

Someone has recut the opening credits for True Detective season one using famous scenes from Star Wars, and the result is as galactically weird as you would hope.


As True Detective season two comes to a close on Sky Atlantic, the mash-up by YouTube channel Star Wars Minute has recut the original opening titles with shots from previous Star Wars movies. 

Everyone from Princess Leia and Darth Vader to Lando Calrissian make the cut, but what is seriously impressive is how neatly the bastard child reflects the original, as you can see below.

It’s proof that even in a galaxy far, far away, that grim theme tune brings everything back down to earth.


As Rust Cohle says, “It’s all one ghetto man, giant ghetto in outer space”.
