YouTube user Morphin Bad shared a video Friday comparing footage from the two spots in an effort to demonstrate the numerous parallels between them. Beginning with a panting Finn popping up from the desert in The Force Awakens, juxtaposed with a gasping Rey on the ground from The Last Jedi, the edit showcases the similar format Disney used for both trailers.
