The Empire Strikes Back may be the most beloved Star Wars film of all time. Proof: the existence of The Empire Strikes Back Uncut, a fan-made creation featuring almost 700 artists. This is a shot-for-shot remake, though it’s probably unlike anything you’ve seen before. To recreate this iconic flick, contributors took a variety of approaches. Re-imaginings include animated segments, dramatic (and cute!) bits starring children, scenes with giant AT-AT Walkers lovingly rendered in cardboard, and even some balloon puppetry. The end result is a heartwarming tribute that speaks to the universal love that emerges in fandoms.
