Three years ago, a group of Star Wars fans decided to remake Star Wars: A New Hope out of fan-generated scenes. Now, the Star Wars Uncut project has finally The U Street Movie Series Kick off Wednesday evening, June 19th with Star Wars Uncut at the come to fruition with a Director’s Cut, a two-hour+ YouTube video created entirely by crowdsourcing.

When fans were encouraged by organizer and fan Casey Pugh to recreate the Star Wars movie in 15-second segments, they were given free reign to do whatever they wanted. Out of the thousands of wildly creative scenes, video editor Aaron Valdez and sound designer and mixer Bryan Pugh picked the best of the bunch, putting together this whimsical Director’s Cut, a rip-roaring re-creation of the George Lucas film.

Movies for the balance of the series are:

July 17th – The Nine Lives of Marion Barry
August 21st – Summer Wars (anime)
September 18th – The Legend of Cool “Disco” Dan
