This is a clip from Star Wars Uncut, a forthcoming movie assembled entirely from fanboy recreations of Star Wars. It's the edits that make it for me: one cast of nerds, Leia buns and Han Solo sideburns in place, making way for another altogether different set of nerds. Maybe this Leia is a little podgier, or the droids shabbier, but then it's onto the next, and they're made of lego, the next, and the Chewbacca is made out of strips of old carpet. The effect is transcendent, ecstatic. "If there's a bright centre to he universe, you're on the planet that it's furthest from," says Luke in the film. Not anymore.
