ARST ARSW: Star Wars Sorted Alphabetically” is the latest proof that fandom for George Lucas’ movie empire knows no bounds. YouTube user suckerpinch painstakingly broke down all of the English dialogue from the original Star Wars and created a video concordance, presenting, in alphabetical order, each time a word is spoken.
