Going to the movies can take up a lot of time, particularly when that movie is Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which means getting to the theater early enough to not only get tickets, but also good seats. So in addition to the movie's 136 minutes (plus those few minutes it takes to go to the bathroom and stand in line for popcorn), that's a lot of time in today's busy world.
For those who have not yet seen the film and still haven't managed to make the time for it, though, 1A4 Studio has recreated the film with simple animation that takes you through the movie's major plot points in just 60 seconds.
Most impressively, though, is that this version of the movie is as entertaining as the original, and probably even a lot funnier.

1A4 Studio has created quite a few funny and similar animations for other franchises, including Game of Thrones, Trainspotting, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Jaws.
Of course, there are many other Star Wars: The Force Awakens parodies out there, including the puppies and kittens version of the trailer and a Wes Anderson makeover of the trailer. However, the most popular parody featured The Force Awakens' own Kylo Ren (actor Adam Driver) appearing in a Saturday Night Live segment as an "Undercover Boss" on the Star Killer base.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens not only became the biggest movie of 2015, but also broke records after its release by becoming one of the biggest movies of all time worldwide. It was also one of the most talked about films on social media, before and after its release.
For those few who really haven't seen The Force Awakens in a movie theater, it's still pretty much playing in theaters everywhere, although for those who prefer the comfort of their own home, the DVD and Blu-ray release of the film is available for preorder now.
In the meantime, expect much more Star Wars with Rogue One arriving this year and Star Wars, Episode VIII arriving in 2017.
