Star Wars fans recreate shot for shot version of The Empire Strikes Back
If you are a huge Star Wars fan and if The Empire Strikes Back is one of your favorite movies, then this story surely is for you. The 1980 classic by Irvin Kershner has been re-created by hundreds of Star Wars fans who have contributed their own reimagined scenes of the film to create The Empire Strikes Back Uncut in a full 2 hour long movie. The shot-for-shot remake of the Star Wars classic is created painstakingly by joining together more than 480 fan-made segments (each about 15 seconds long) which are picked from over 1,500 submissions. The movie was released on Star Wars YouTube channel and its official site on Friday. The project was directed by Casey Pugh who was responsible for the creation of the Star Wars Uncut project similar to this back in 2010.
The two hour long movie is an amazing treat for a Star War fan which portrays the commitment, care, hard work and devotion of his fellow Star War fans. Featuring original’s score and audio, The Empire Strikes Back Uncut is filled with charm, inspiration, humor and oddities too. One of the reimagined scenes from the movie shows Anthony Daniels’ C-3PO portrayed by a man wearing nothing but gold paint and underpants. One scene depicts R2-D2 as an ornate pumpkin while one shows represents Tauntaun as a fleshy human mount. The ESB Uncut is a tribute to the original The Empire Strikes Back and to the talent, imagination and commitment of Star Wars fans.
