Natalie Portman Stars in Padmé, the Star Wars Spinoff We Really Need

The Oscar goes to this trailer.

What if Queen Padmé Amidala from Star Wars got the biopic treatment in the style of Jackie?

Burning question, we know. Filmmaker Nelson Carvajal charmingly imagines the result in “Padmé,” a mashup trailer of Jackie and Star Wars episodes I, II, and III. Both, of course, star Natalie Portman. Carvajal pulls the audio track from a Jackie trailer, in which Portman recites lyrics from the musical Camelot, and fuses it with scenes of Padmé's life. This would definitely give Natalie Portman her second Oscar.
