Over 800,000 people have already viewed the over two hour flick that hit YouTube January 18. It comes as the idea of Casey Pugh back in 2009 when he reportedly asked Internet users to remake “Star Wars: A New Hope” into a fan film, 15 seconds at a time.
“Contributors were allowed to recreate scenes from Star Wars however they wanted. Within just a few months SWU grew into a wild success. The creativity that poured into the project was unimaginable,” reads the YouTube caption.
One clip includes a Twitter post that reads, “In a galaxy far, far away,” while another scene looks like it was created in chalk.
Reportedly, Star Wars Uncut had been previously featured in documentaries and conferences around the world and in 2010, even reportedly won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media.
Lucky for us, the project has been posted online for the world to share—According to StarWarsUncut.com, the “Director’s Cut” is a feature-length film that contains hand-picked scenes from the entire StarWarsUncut.com collection.
“We can’t thank everyone enough for making this such a special project,” reads the caption.
