First Teaser for Star Wars Uncut: The Empire Strikes Back


In 2009 Casey Pugh tasked Star Wars fans with recreating A New Hope, and the result was nothing short of spectacular. Each participant contributed 15 seconds of a particular scene to the overall project, and they were able to use any artistic style they wanted. Scenes were remade using various film techniques, and a boatload of creativity on behalf of the Star Wars loving public. The video won amateur film making awards and has garnered millions of views.

The success of Star Wars Uncut: A New Hope has motivated the team to remake The Empire Strikes Back using the same formula as their first fan made project. A new teaser has been released for it, and it looks like the Star Wars fans have stepped up their game once again.

If you’re interested in contributing there’s still time to sign up for your very own 15-second scene from Empire. Head on down past the break if you need a better idea of what the whole Star Wars Uncut movement is all about. While down there you can watch the teaser for Empire, but if you have a few hours to kill, you can also watch the full version of A New Hope. You’ve been loving the amount of creativity that this fan project exudes…
