The Lion King Rises? Wall-Etheus? It's a Trailer Mash-Up Spectacular!

One of the many things that makes the internet so wonderful is that it provides the ultimate platform to showcase creative genius. Not a day goes by where I don't see something that makes me jealous. Well, today is more than just one of those days. I saw a tweet from Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof saying "for those wondering what PROMETHEUS might look like with a G rating." I clicked on the link, and discovered two of the greatest mash-up trailers I have EVER seen.

Edited by Brad Hansen, the first is The Lion King Rises - footage from Disney's classic animated film The Lion King edited frame for frame to the sound in the trailer for The Dark Knight Rises. Wow, he even got the damn dialogue perfectly synced! The next (also edited by Hansen), is Wall-Etheus - footage from one of my favourite films Wall-E edited to the sound from the Prometheus trailer. Awesome, and strangely enough, just as scary as the original Prometheus trailer. Even the tagline is enough to make me jump up and down. The power of editing is a truly incredible thing!

Hit the jump for what is bound to be the highlight of your day: the result of mashing up two of the most anticipated films of 2012 and two of the best animated films of all time.
