Star Wars Speed Bike Jetovator Battle in Real Life

Watch Star Wars Speeder Bike Chase Played Out In Real Life With Jetovators

Guess what? The Speeder Bike featured in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi exists! Yes! Here on Earth! Ok, we all know that a Speeder Bike is scientifically not possible with today’s technology, but thanks to the water-powered Jetovator we saw four years ago, it is sort of a reality now and thus, allowing Devin Supertramp and his team to recreate the Speeder Bike chase scene fairly accurately – except that, this entire ‘remake’, or real-life Speeder Bike battle, have to be played out over a river because, Jetovator. Hmmm, I don’t recall Endor has any river at all.

Nope. No forest here…

Anyways, it is an excellent effort and also, good job in dressing up the Jetovator with the Speeder Bike prop. Overall, it was as exciting to watch as the original movie, made more thrilling by the fact that the entire thing was shot without major CGI.

Here’s the video that no self-professed Star Wars fan should miss:

And here’s the original chase scene for your comparison…

    And just how close is the Support Boats? Something has to be Pumping the “Waterjets”…

    • Yes, they did have jetskis a few feet behind them feeding the water required to lift each Jetovator. See it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSgUwi5IdTg

        Has to be fairly big to be able to keep to Jetski up close a personal and Pump Enough Water to keep the Jetovator in the Air at the Same Time
