Now, there are a whole lot of reasons to love Star Wars, but chief among them might well be the saga's continued ability to influence pretty much every aspect of our day-to-day lives, and those of pretty much everyone around us. It's a big, open, ever-expanding club, and its membership is only going to expand come this December's release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

One of the side benefits of Star Wars fandom's relatively universal scope - perhaps unmatched by any other cultural touchstone - though, is the fact that it has led to a whole bunch of awesome fan-made creations.

The latest to emerge? A fan-made film that might just be...

The Most Teasingly Nostalgic Star Wars Fan Film Ever

What's more, the film - written and directed by J.C. Reifenberg - comes complete with an absolutely epic twist reveal in its closing moments.

Yup, that's right...


Something which, when you go back and look re-watch the film, becomes increasingly apparent.

My personal favorite hints and teases?

The Mischievous Dog Named Robot

Who later shows some 'bad' behavior, giving us a classic "Bad Robot" line - hinting at a certain production company...

The Field of Clover That the 'Monster' Falls Into

Because the audio and visual cues for Cloverfield were great and all, but there's no better symbolism than that...

The Epic Escape of Luke Skywalker

Mission Impossible's Ethan Hunt, eat your heart out...

The Very Modern Seeming Light Saber Darth Vader Is Rocking

Kylo Ren, anyone?

And, of course:

The USS Enterprise

Because OF COURSE.

You get the feeling J.J. Abrams would be proud...

The thing is, though - there are a whole lot more Easter eggs, hints and teases hiding in there. What's your favorite?

And while we're at it...
