Though I've always noticed the similarities between Final Fantasy XII and Star Wars, I didn't expect them accomodate each other so well that it seemed uncannily spooky to a certain extent.

Without further ado, here's the link and may the force be with you.
Final Fantasy XII - The Saga Begins (American Pie)
Song: The Saga Begins (American Pie)

Genius!

At first I was a little uncertain if it would actually work with that song - but it does!
It is clear that you put a lot of effort into making this video - it all goes together so well!

Basch as Obi-Wan Kenobi biggrin.gif ...I never associated him with that character - it makes totally sense! (I always viewed Basch as a mentor figure to Vaan)
I feel sorry for him though, he will have a very hard time in turning this "small fry" into a warrior tongue.gif

Yeah, it was rather tough, the lyrics didn't gave me much problem, it was the length of the song which drained me. The song itself was 5 min+ and that's rather lengthy for me. Fortunately, I wasn't really lack of scenes cause Vaan is a great specimen for goofiness and made my life much easier. smile.gif

Hehe... I like Obi-Wan, more than Anakin and Qui-Gonn. Considering that Obi-Wan was the level-headed one of the group, in that sense I can associate him with Basch quite well. He'll make a fine mentor figure for Vaan, though he'd probably grew a few gray hairs while training Vaan into a Judge Jedi knight. It's a thorny road ahead, but someone has to do it and no doubt the self-sacrificial Basch would be the one to take up the job! angel.gif

Just to let you know, my fav moment was when a certain someone ends up toast and returns as a ghost. OMG, that was such a fitting character for him. Though, I dislike the idea of Basch being his padawan. tongue.gif

So Vaan's 9 and Ashe's 14 ^^ and they'll get married someday....in this case then I wish Padme married Obi Wan XD

In FFXII/Star Wars crossover universe. Yes, I would have liked the idea of Padme and Obi-Wan much more. tongue.gif

And yup, the amazon bunny womans form the Jedi council to secure the peace of Ivalice. Actually, I had thought of using either the Archadia's Senates, Dalmasca war council, the Judges or maybe the Giruvegans. But in the end, I chose the Viera village for the sake of irony and humour. I can't really resist, especially when there was a line from Qui-Gon which mentions 'pointy ears'. Also, I think Jote worked quite well as Yoda laugh.gif
