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 wanted to keep expanding the Uncut universe for The Empire Strikes Back Uncut , which launched in 2012 - and boy did the Jedis show up. We received almost 2,000 of the most creative fan submissions we'd ever seen. A team of 20 judges assembled to select their favorites, and the Director's Cut was edited to premiere on the official Star Wars site.
