Star Wars: The Force Awakens has just released on DVD and Blu-Ray, and unsurprisingly, fans are discovering a ton of cool stuff about it that they didn't when it was in theaters.
Whether it's all the behind-the-scenes stuff, or a new easter egg that nobody noticed before, fans are picking apart TFA and expressing their love for this movie in the best way!
One fan took it to a whole new level, and used TFA to combine the two of the internet's favorite things; mash-ups and conspiracy theories!
A Reddit user noticed something pretty odd about The Force Awakens. Something that it shares in common with another movie; The Wizard of Oz.
We all know The Wizard of Oz right? The age-old story of young Dorothy from Kansas who is suddenly whisked away to a fantasy world. She finds herself in the magical world of Oz, and meets a variety of strange characters, including the Lion, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Wicked Witch of the West.
We've all seen the movie, heard the tale, it's forever implanted in the very recesses of our minds; right there next to Batman's parent's deaths.
Since we all probably know the story of The Wizard of Oz like the back of our hands, you're probably wondering just what this movie and TFA could possibly have in common. Well, while their stories may be vastly different (unless there's a film analyzer out there who can prove otherwise), the two do share a rather peculiar fan theory.
Released in 1973, the infamous Pink Floyd album Dark Side of the Moon has become the subject of several internet conspiracy theories. The most famous being that it was actually meant to be the soundtrack for The Wizard of the Oz!
First discovered in 1995, this crazy (but pretty convincing) theory has only garnered more and more attention during the years. Fans have titled it "Dark Side of the Rainbow", and continue to try and prove that the album was made specifically for the movie.
You can find a ton of videos like this one online, including the full movie paired up with the full album.
As it turns out, The Wizard of Oz isn't the only movie that matches up well with Dark Side of the Moon. Reddit user knnl found out that the album goes surprisingly well with The Force Awakens as well!
Pretty cool right? Even if you don't like Dark Side of the Moon, or The Force Awakens, it is impressive seeing them synced together. Who would have thought that a movie from 1939 and a movie from 2015 would both have something in common—with that something in common being an album from 1973?
If you want to try syncing the film and the album yourself, knnl gives pretty clear instructions on how to do so here!
What do you think? Does the song actually match up with either movie? Or are knnl and others just hearing what they want to hear? Sound off in the comments below!
