Star Wars Uncut: Appropriation At Its Finest

Recommended Videos

It’s safe to say that Episode IV: A New Hope is an icon in sci-fi/fantasy storytelling, and that any childhood and/or adulthood is incomplete without having been exposed to it. As such, I’m sure many can remember holding anything from a toy to a tree branch and pretending it was a real lightsaber. And that neighbor kid who always broke your things? Obviously a servant of the Dark Side, however cute she might have been.

Or was that just me?

At any rate, for nearly a year fans have been eagerly living out those fantasies on camera and posting them online in 15-second snippets thanks to a project known as Star Wars Uncut. Amateur videographers from around the world were given the chance to take up to 3 15-second scenes and recreate them however they saw fit, be it with actual actors or with action figures. Those clips have all been stitched together into a remixed version of the original film. Check out the trailer below:

According to their website, the project is 100% complete and is gearing up for screenings at the CPH:PIX Festival in Copenhagen on April 19th, as well as several more in NYC in the future.
