Despite the fact that [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](tag:711158) was almost universally loved, we do have to sigh and concede that there's no such thing as a perfect film, especially when you've got such a legacy to live up to.

But of course, that ending. Rey (Daisy Ridley) finally making it to Ahch-to and the moment which we'd been waiting for for thirty years. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) turns, lowering his hood to regard Rey. She holds out the lost lightsaber towards him, there's a moment of intense staring and... the movie ends.

It was a great if frustrating way to sign off, but what if things had ended a little differently? Because it wasn't just Rey and the Resistance who were seeking Luke; the central quest of antagonists Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) was also to track down the elusive Skywalker.

So what if the bad guys had gotten to Luke Skywalker first or, more importantly, what if Kylo Ren had his wish and got to throw down with his uncle?

The wonderful people of the 'How It Should Have Ended' YouTube channel envisioned and created such a thing and - like most things in life - it's made even better by that fact that it's made out of LEGO.

In their amazing animated version of the ending of the The Force Awakens Kylo Ren and his Stormtroopers catch up with Luke on the watery island planet, with perhaps predictable results as Kylo gets his ass force handed to him.

It even features the internet's favourite stormtrooper FN-2199, better known in the fanbase as TR-8R, who... also gets his ass force handed to him. Also, he single handedly blows up Starkiller Base, showing up Poe Dameron pretty neatly.

Check it out below!

Whilst this comprises mainly fun and games it does raise some pertinent questions regarding Luke Skywalker. For example, just how powerful is he now that thirty years have passed? Would Kylo cry grandfather instead of uncle? (Probably). And damn, now we really want to Luke stopping multiple blasters at once using the force in Star Wars 8.

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' releases digitally on April 1, with the Blu-ray/DVD arriving April 5.
