After Daniel Craig's cameo as a Stormtrooper in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the Star Wars and James Bond crossover is getting deeper with a new fan-made title sequence for Empire Strikes Back made in the style of the Bond movies. School of Visual Arts student Kurt Rauffer produced the video for his senior thesis as a homage to the two film franchises.

"After re-watching the Empire Strikes Back, I decided to use this as a chance to create a homage in the form of a title sequence," said Rauffer. "I really wanted to play on the concept of Luke trying to find himself and true purpose, so the music and inspiration felt fitting."

The soundtrack is Radiohead's "Spectre," which was made for - but not used - 2015's Spectre.

There's no word on Rauffer's grade for this Senior Thesis, but watch the homage below and tell us what grade you think he deserves.
