Down the Tubes: Epic Rap Battles Presents Harry Potter vs Luke Skywalker

Down the Tubes is a (semi) regular feature where we, the SAW staff, share our favorite movie-related videos with the Wasteland.

One of the best YouTube channels to never really put out bad content is Epic Rap Battles of History. They are fun, engaging shorts that take two popular figures (historical or fictional) and pit them against one another through the power of rap.

Well, after a hiatus, ERB is back with a new episode. This time the short was shot with LEGO through stop-motion animation. And what are two of the biggest licensed LEGO franchises right now? Harry Potter and Star Wars. So it makes sense that ERB would pit Harry Potter against Star Wars’ Luke Skywalker.


To see how the video came together, check out the awesome behind-the-scenes footage:
