Patton Oswalt's epic Star Wars VII rant gets awesomely animated

Because some things are better seen than heard -- like robot spider Chewbacca, for example.

Not long ago, Patton Oswalt staged a fake seven-and-a-half-minute filibuster on the set of NBC's Parks and Recreation. The topic of his filibuster: what J.J. Abrams should do with Star Wars Episode VII. Unsurprisingly, the whole thing went off the rails as soon as Oswalt started talking about the villain -- Thanos. Yes, it's the Marvel Universe vs. A Galaxy Far, Far Away in a duel to the death.

And now someone has been so kind as to animate Oswalt's speech so we can witness just how amazing this movie would be. And, kids at home, it's pretty amazing.

J.J. Abrams -- consider the gauntlet dropped.
