Happy Star Wars Day

For Star Wars Day, if you have to ask then you really are not a fan!  Here's the more than two hour hour long 100% fan sourced "Star Wars: A New Hope" fan film...

'In 2009, Casey Pugh asked thousands of Internet users to remake "Star Wars: A New Hope" into a fan film, 15 seconds at a time. Contributors were allowed to recreate scenes from Star Wars however they wanted. Within just a few months SWU grew into a wild success. The creativity that poured into the project was unimaginable.

SWU has been featured in documentaries, news features and conferences around the world for its unique appeal. In 2010 we won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media.

Finally, the crowd-sourced project has been stitched together and put online for your streaming pleasure. The "Director's Cut" is a feature-length film that contains hand-picked scenes from the entire collection.

Many thanks to Aaron Valdez (video editor - and Bryan Pugh (sound design/mixing - for the countless hours they put into this masterpiece.

We can't thank everyone enough for making this such a special project.

Follow SWU!'

Oh okay, Today is Star Wars Day because; well what's the date? 4th of May, or May the 4th.... "May the Fourth be with you"...

And for the ladies on Star Wars Day, an idea as to how to celebrate...

Or you could dress up as Princess Leia...
