Star Wars fans are sitting at the top of fandom mountain after this one. The Empire Strikes Back Uncut is an official remake created entirely with fan-made clips. 

In the second installment of the series—Star Wars Uncut was released back in 2010 and won an Emmy—1,500 fans from around the world put together 15-second clips of the iconic film, with 480 fan-made clips being chosen for the film.

Live action, animation, and even stop-motion has been used by fans and compiled by the team at Lucasfilm, led by director Casey Pugh—who also directed Star Wars Uncut—to create the film.

If you have two hours to spare, give it a watch.
