Star Wars and Kenny Loggins aren’t usually used in the same sentence, but we can’t get enough of this X-wing scene video compilation set to the Loggins hit, “Danger Zone.” The Star Wars fan video was shared by user Jackson McKay on BoingBoing. He also credits Emmett K in the caption.
This X-Wing tribute includes all of the scenes that feature the fighters from 7 total Star Wars films: the original trilogy (Episode IV: A New Hope, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Episode VI: Return of the Jedi), the sequel trilogy (Episode VII: The Force Awakens, Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, and Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker) , and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
We’d never thought about it before, but the Top Gun theme song is the perfect ode to X-wing pilots, who took their lives in their hands daily during the Rebellion’s long fight against Imperial forces and the First Order.
We can almost hear Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) singing “Danger Zone” to himself as he climbs into the cockpit…
“Revvin’ up your engine, listen to her howlin’ roar. Metal under tension, beggin’ you to touch and go.”
