Television editor Oscar Rene-Lozoya created the video titled "Crib Wars Episode I: The Baby Menace," employing his young second cousins as the stars. In an email to ABC, Rene-Lozoya said that he was inspired to create the video after snapping a great photo of his cousin Matthew Gaxiola (baby Yoda) scarfing down a Mickey-Mouse cupcake.



Wanting to capture the moment on video, he decided to craft a short film combining his family's love for Star Wars.

According to Rene-Lozoya, his actor family had a lot of fun. Five-year-old Joshua Gaxiola (baby Darth Vader) is a huge Star Wars fan, and Violet Marquez (baby Princess Leia) was laughing throughout the whole shoot.



"I love making these videos with my family!" said Rene-Lozoya. "These videos really give me an excuse to meet up with my family, have a lot of fun, and still feel like I'm working on my craft as a filmmaker."

Rene-Lozoya said that friends volunteered to help him shoot the video with his family, knowing how much fun they always have. During the five-hour filming session, the cast and crew had a relaxed time as they watched football in the background, jammed out to Star Wars music, and ate pizza and cupcakes. He even shared this unlisted video with us of little Violet high-fiving the crew after the shoot wrapped:
