In 2009, thousands of Internet users were asked 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.
And so they did, lovingly and unbelievably accurately, in almost every format imaginable: poorly-costumed live action; spectacularly-costumed live action; Star Warsaction figures; Star TREK action figures; hand-drawn animation; digital animation; LEGO; stop-motion models; PEZ dispensers; Playmobil; SIMS; cats....

Here is the Star Wars Uncut project official site, which gives more details on how it all came together....

And here is the result.



(Can also be viewed at Vimeo.)

I whole-heartedly endorse watching every single second of this magnificent piece of crowdsourced delight.

And whenever you see someone online moaning that the people against SOPA/PIPA "just want to steal stuff," point them to this and explain that, had those acts passed, anybody involved in this this joyous film/homage/interpretation would have been under threat of arrest (or flat-out arrested), and any website that hosted it would have been brought down, and the owners of the website prosecuted.
