“Star Wars Uncut:” 472 Groups of Amateur Auteurs Reenact a Feature Length Classic

At least 472 groups of people signed up to reproduce these scenes (some
scenes have three different versions), which might make this the largest crowdsourced film effort of all time. But at the very least, it makes for some great entertainment. Some scenes are just plain inspired–a sandwich coming out of a microwave standing in for a departing Millennium Falcon, bow-ties for tie fighters–some are more akin to the low-budget “Sweded” remakes from Michel Gondry’s Be Kind Rewind, and some are a little too frighteningly well-produced. Some are just frightening.
