Star Wars Uncut is a crazy fan mashup remake of the original Star Wars movies. It is the brainchild of Casey Pugh, a developer dedicated to creating interactive experiences on the web. In 2009, Casey was inspired to use the Internet and an ever-ready pool of passionate Star Wars fans to crowdsource the classic film Star Wars IV: A New Hope. This pet project turned into a labor of love and creativity on a large scale. Nearly a thousand fans came together to participate and the resulting movie is equal parts fun, kooky, and dearly nostalgic.
Star Wars Uncut has been featured in documentaries, news features, and conferences around the world for its unique appeal - we thank everyone for making it such a special project. StarWarsUncut.com won a 2010 Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media - Fiction.
We created Star Wars Uncut in 2009 with just some blood, sweat, and pipe cleaners. It took time and a lot of trial and error to figure out how to bring this new concept to life—we learned a lot alongside our thousands of contributors. With one fan-made film under our belt and plenty of inspiration, we can’t wait to get fans together to recreate the next episode in the galactic saga. Past contributors, new friends, and future Jedis of the world: we know you have a lot more up your sleeves for The Empire Strikes Back Uncut.
