What if you took the original Star Wars movie, broke it up into 15-second chunks, and got fans from around the world to re-create those parts of the movie however they liked? The result is Star Wars Uncut, which retells the film using animation, toys, kids, pets, puppets and more. Star Wars Uncut will be screened at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, MA on June 7th at 8:00pm.
We probably won’t ever be able to screen the original Star Wars here at the Brattle but we’re thrilled to be able to present this amazing crowd-sourced, fan remake of the most famous and revered science fiction film of all time. The creators of this innovative project chopped the original Star Wars into 15 second chunks and solicited the internet to find filmmakers to remake each scene. Now, they have stitched together a feature length version of the project that retells the entire story of the film entirely through the eyes of fans. With quality ranging from remarkable to dismal, STAR WARS: UNCUT roams from animation to amateur child performances to hilarious reinterpretations of the material including appearances from Moe the Bartender, the stars of The Big Lebowski, and several out of place cats.
