The Last Jedi Recreated in Battlefront II

This is a peculiar video that will affect Star Wars fans differently depending on whether they are gamers are not. YouTuber UndeadPathfinder_  recreated the final showdown between Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren using the video game Star Wars Battlefront II. Those familiar with the limits of the game are quite impressed, as they know how difficult this project had to be. They particularly praise the work and skill shown in synching the dialogue to the characters.

Those who have never played Battlefront II get a different vibe, right into the uncanny valley. The voices say the characters are real, while the graphics say no. We can still appreciate the work that went into it. (via Geeks Are Sexy)

My buddy at work told me it's all about the red salt under the white salt.
When you watch the whole thing, you will see that Kylo leaves red foot prints and scuffs up the white salt, Luke does not, that's the hint that he's "not there".

Yeah, I noticed that was not part of the Battlefront recreation, except for one red footprint. But then, I have no clue how difficult this video was to make.
