The original trilogy of George Lucas’ Star Wars clocks in at just under seven hours. But, Digg has boiled down all those deaths in just under three minutes in a fabulous new video.

People make a big deal about how many people die in a Transformers movie, for example, or even what you see when you watch Pulp Fiction online.

But, look at the final death count for Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi and we’re in a whole different league of dying! 

As we await the December 18, 2015 arrival of Star Wars: Episode VII, let’s look back at how everyone perished in the first trilogy. And who do you think dies last? One guess is all you’ll need!

Star Wars Quotes

Supreme Chancellor: Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis "the wise"?
Anakin Skywalker: No.
Supreme Chancellor: I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.
Anakin Skywalker: He could actually save people from death?
Supreme Chancellor: The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural.
Anakin Skywalker: What happened to him?
Supreme Chancellor: He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It's ironic he could save others from death, but not himself.

Padmé: [crying] Anakin, you're breaking my heart! And you're going down a path I cannot follow!
Anakin Skywalker: Because of Obi-Wan?
Padmé: Because of what you've done... what you plan to do! Stop! Stop now; come back... I love you!
