New Thing #329: Star Wars Uncut

Scale_4

I heard about Star Wars Uncut a few years ago, but never realized until now that it actually got produced, or more importantly, released for free on the internet.

The concept is simple, recreate the entire Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope in fifteen second clips using whatever means possible. Most are crude but creative, often funny and sometimes inspired. A lot of it comes off as a vintage Doctor Who episode, or childhood movie project. And there’s a lot of bearded Leias. A lot.

Clocking in at just over two hours you’d think that the visual cocophany of that many cuts would be overwhelming, but somehow it works. I suspect it’s because the original film is so ingrained into my memory that it was liking watching an overlay to the real thing. John Williams’ score is in place too which helps to meld the clips together even more. 

I’m really glad I got to finally see this, and if they’re ever remaking The Empire Strikes Back I’m definitely getting in on that action.
