Star Wars invades Earth's skies in pulse-pounding drone-powered dogfight

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" gave audiences plenty of in-atmosphere dogfights between X-wings and TIE fighters, something that had rarely been seen before. Now, the crew at Corridor Digital have taken that idea one step further by creating epic dogfight videos using drones, GoPros, 3D-printed cockpits and "Star Wars" figures.

Using drones from Rotor Riot, the Corridor Digital team filmed GoPro footage of drones going head to head in the skies. They then 3D-printed some X-wing and TIE fighter cockpits, filmed them making all the moves separately, and mashed the footage together for a jaw-dropping action sequence. There's even a surprise Sith reveal at the end.

You can also see how the team made this film in the behind-the-scenes look below.
