The Fan Menace

No need to line up for Star Wars Uncut

Two weeks from today, thousands of people will line up to see the 3DĀ conversion of The Phantom Menace.

You won't be among them, as anyone who doesn't dress up as a Jawa knows, that movie sucked the first time around. No pair of glasses will shield that.

Instead, fire up the computer and set a course for the YouTube system, where you'll find Star Wars Uncut: The Director's Cut.

We told you about this ambitious, fan-created project when it began a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away (August 2010).

The deal: The original Star Wars (Episode IV: A New Hope) was divided into 15-second-long scenes, which were then claimed by Internet filmmakers who wanted to do shot-by-shot reenactments.

And reenact they did. The new "improved" clips contain original animations, a sexy female Vader storming the rebel blockade runner, and scenes recreated in Lego.

And now, they're finally stitched together into one full-length movie, complete with dialogue, soundtrack, you name it.

Everything, thankfully, except Jar-Jar.
