This Shot-for-Shot Empire Strikes Back Remake Was Made By 480 Fans
Star Wars fans are a wildly devoted bunch, and 480 of them just had their dreams come true. The Empire Strikes Back: Uncut is a shot-for-shot remake of Episode V, composed entirely of 15-second clips filmed and submitted by very creative fans.
This is fun to watch. Each of the scenes are uniquely different—live-action and illustration and puppets and stop motion, really polished (and really not) and totally silly—all seamlessly edited into a full-length feature. And it’s actually the second installment in the experimental series; Episode IV was a huge hit a few years back, so mastermind Casey Pugh took on the monumental task of sifting through thousands of entries for this follow-up.
