After the embarrassing amount of time it took me to make this graphic, I consider myself the 481st artist to contribute to this movie.

Hey, it's Friday night. Let's do something fun, but more importantly free, preferably in a way that lets you feel superior to everyone on Monday. Tonight, you can tell nerds that you saw a version of The Empire Strikes Back that they've never seen (on the official Star Wars channel, no less), and you can tell snobs you had to stay in to watch the new follow-up to the Internet's most important crowd-sourced film to date. You'll just be having a good time watching Star Wars, but I like to think up my false arrogance beforehand. This is The Empire Strikes Back: Uncut, a film made up, according to its own description, "480 fan-made snippets culled from over 1,500 submissions. features a stunning mash-up of styles and filmmaking techniques, including live action, animation, and stop-motion. The project launched in 2013, with fans claiming 15-second scenes to reimagine as they saw fit" and online voters choosing whose submissions got in.
