Details about the new J.J. Abrams-helmed "Star Wars" film are as tightly sealed as Han Solo in carbonite, but if you're looking for your daily "Star Wars" fix, boy, do we have a treat for you:
"Star Wars" Parkour is the brain child of stunt coordinator and professional free runner/parkour trainer Ronnie Shalvis. While we don't remember Luke having to do mid-air flips as part of his training on Dagobah, if Abrams is looking for some inspiration for the next generation of Jedi masters, might we suggest an intergalactic training montage of Jedi free running?
Suffice it to say, impressed, we are. In no particular order, here are four of the coolest stunts from the video:

According to the video's creators, if "Star Wars" Parkour gets enough views, they'll be making a sequel video featuring a parkour chase scene AND a lightsaber battle.

Get on it, Internet, while we collectively wait for more news about "Episode VII."
