Watch the full version of The Empire Strikes Back Uncut, a fan-made, shot-for-shot remake of the Star Wars classic!
With more than 480 fan-made segments culled from over 1,500 submissions, The Empire Strikes Back Uncut (also known as ESB Uncut) features a stunning mash-up of styles and filmmaking techniques, including live action, animation, and stop-motion.
