A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... or rather in 2009 on the internet, the "Star Wars: Uncut" project was created. More than two years later, it has become a movie. It is a crowd-sourced remake of the original Star Wars film, "A New Hope".
Fans from around the world sent in their own take on scenes from the movie, in a dizzying array of cinematic styles. The movie was divided up into 15-second parts on StarWarsUncut.com. Then fans picked scenes, re-imagined them, and uploaded their clips to the site. So, for example, rather than a live-action Han Solo and Chewbacca battling stormtroopers, you get figures such as Toy Story's Buzz Lightyear and Woody taking on a couple of Mister Potato Heads.
In total, there are 473 scenes, but more than 1,000 were uploaded before the site was closed to submissions and the scenes were stitched together into the full film.
