The Empire Strikes Back Uncut Launches and the Star Wars Fan Film Awards Return


Finally, a full version of "The Empire Strikes Back Uncut" has been released and posted by StarWars.com!, This brilliant, fan-made, shot-for-shot remake of the Star Wars classic is one definitely checking out for both casual and hardcore fans of the Saga!

Check out the details on the film below as well as details on the upcoming Star Wars Fan Film Awards!

With more than 480 fan-made segments culled from over 1,500 submissions, The Empire Strikes Back Uncut (also known as ESB Uncut) 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 – resulting in sequences created with everything from action figures to cardboard props to stunning visual effects. Helmed by Casey Pugh, who oversaw 2010’s Emmy-winning Star Wars Uncut, the new film has a wonderful homemade charm, stands as an affectionate tribute to The Empire Strikes Back, and is a testament to the talent, imagination, and dedication of Star Wars fans.

The Empire Strikes Back Uncut, a fan-made crowdsourced mashup video of the iconic Star Wars sequel, debuts on StarWars.com alongside an announcement heralding the return of the Star Wars Fan Film Awards this October!

The Emmy® Award winning Star Wars Uncut, which began as a labor of love by developer Casey Pugh and evolved into a massive internet project involving nearly a thousand fans, recreated the original Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope shot by shot with homespun footage contributed by amateur filmmakers around the world. Following its success, a sequel version for The Empire Strikes Back was announced with another call-out for submissions, this time garnering over 1,500 responses from fans sending short 15-second segments using their own actors, props, animation, artwork, or action figures to tell the story of The Empire Strikes Back. The result is a marvelous patchwork of styles and technique that is a humorous, inventive and affectionate homage to one of the Star Wars saga¹s most beloved movies.

In the spirit of The Empire Strikes Back Uncut, Lucasfilm is also announcing the return of the Star Wars Fan Film Awards, which will begin accepting submissions this October with the best selections to screen in a special ceremony at the upcoming Star Wars Celebration event in Anaheim next April. Originally launched in 2002, the Star Wars Fan Film Awards officially acknowledged and embraced the fan film genre, giving fans an official forum to express their love of Star Wars through film. Though briefly retired in 2012, the Star Wars Fan Film Awards are being re-launched this year, welcoming multiple genres to be judged in several different categories. Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy will select a winner for the "Filmmaker Select Award."

"The Star Wars Fan Film Awards are a wonderful way for us to acknowledge the extraordinary talent and passion of our fans that have supported us throughout the years," says Kennedy. "Since Star Wars has inspired so many to take up a camera and begin their own filmmaking careers, we'd like to share some of that inspiration with an audience and encourage those filmmakers to follow their bliss. I'm looking forward to witnessing the incredible creativity I know our fans are capable of!"

A set of two tickets to Star Wars Celebration Anaheim will be awarded to the best films in each of seven categories, including Filmmaker Select, Best Animation, Best Non-Fiction, Spirit of Fandom, Best Comedy, Best Visual Effects, and Audience Choice. Entries can be no longer than five minutes and must be submitted by individuals at least 13 years old and legally residing in the US or Canada (except Quebec). No purchase necessary to enter to win. For a full list of rules and restrictions, please go to starwarsfanfilmawards.com. To learn more about Star Wars Uncut and The Empire Strikes Back Uncut, please visit starwars.com/esbuncut.

NYCC 2014: James Asmus and Steve Lieber Target QUANTUM AND WOODY MUST DIE! #1 – Coming in January from Valiant!‏

Critical darlings. Comic book legends. Heroes for cash. Quantum and Woody are all this and less…but, in 2015, the world's worst superhero team is dead meat!

As revealed today at New York Comic Con 2014, Valiant is proud to announce QUANTUM AND WOODY MUST DIE! #1 (of 4) – the FIRST ISSUE of a dastardly new limited series jumping-on point for the most nominated series of the 2014 Harvey Awards! The first in a new series of limited series for the world's worst superhero team, start reading here as award-winning writer James Asmus (Gambit, Thief of Thieves) and Eisner Award-winning artist Steve Lieber (Superior Foes of Spider-Man) bring the most talked-about duo of semi-professional heroes in comics to a whole new high! (Unfortunately, there are a bunch of people that would like to kill them up there.)

They came. They saw. They pissed off a whole lotta folks. And now a team of mystery vigilantes has singled out the world's worst superhero team out for complete and utter destruction. The first target: their minds! But who are all these all-new enemies? Are Quantum and Woody really hitting it off with a sexy duo of cat burglars? And, dear god, what have they done to the goat? Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Sex Criminals isn't the only comic that can quote Queen, comics fans – here come Quantum and Woody! (Or so they think! [Trippy, right?!])

"All of a sudden, a half-dozen mysterious forces are operating against them that they've never seen before," said writer James Asmus in an interview today with Comic Book Resources. "It's a whole batch of things that are both picking up where we left off and also feel like something's changed off panel that both the reader and Quantum and Woody will be trying to figure out how we got there."

Valiant's a-number one team of super-hero misadventurers get it where it hurts – right in the cerebral cortex! – this January when James Asmus and Steve Lieber make their worst fears a reality in QUANTUM AND WOODY MUST DIE! #1 (of 4)! Featuring covers by Mike Hawthorne (Deadpool), Johnnie Christmas (Sheltered), and Eisner Award winner Chip Zdarsky (Sex Criminals), make with the sales on this one and we promise not to hurt the goat…maybe…

QUANTUM AND WOODY MUST DIE! #1 (of 4). Coming in January. Only from Valiant Entertainment.

Did you catch the Star Wars Rebels mini-movie on Disney Channel/Disney XD? It was GREAT! I can't wait for more Rebels. The Lucasfilm Animation team really did a tremendous job capturing the action, adventure and humor of the original trilogy films.

Now StarWars.com has made the move to provide some bonus content for us Rebel fans! Rebels Recon is a series of behind-the-scenes looks at the Rebel series, much like the content Disney XD plays in between show segments for their Marvel Universe block of programming. I really enjoy the style in which they produce these segments. Check out this premiere episode!

In the first installment of Rebels Recon, StarWars.com takes you inside Star Wars Rebels’ debut episode, “Spark of Rebellion,” with cast and crew interviews, coverage of the premiere’s L.A. screening, and an exclusive clip from next week’s episode.

At the premiere, Lucasfilm’s Andi Gutierrez spoke with the cast about the experience thus far. “It’s been overwhelmingly positive and wonderful,” Tiya Sircar, voice of Sabine said. Jaime King, actress and longtime fan, says her child was introduced to Star Wars “since he came out of the womb.” Dave Filoni, the show’s executive producer, revealed that he showed “Spark of Rebellion” to George Lucas last week – and he loved it.

In the StarWars.com offices in San Francisco, the show’s creators discuss its development and what they like most about the era of Star Wars Rebels. For Joel Aron, CG supervisor, it’s being chronologically close to A New Hope. Kilian Plunkett, art director, loves working with the Empire.
