    This Fan Remake Of ‘Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back’ Is Incredible: Watch Now
    'Star Wars' fans might be the most dedicated fans in the galaxy.

    Hey, “Star Wars” fans, got any plans this weekend? If they don’t involve watching this two-hour, shot-for-shot fan remake of “The Empire Strikes Back,” then you might want to reevaluate your priorities.

    The masterminds over at Lucasfilm had the brilliant-beyond-brilliant idea to recruit their legions of creative, dedicated fans to reshoot the 1980 sci-fi classic in 15-second chunks. More than 480 fans sent in 1,500 submissions, which were stitched together piece-by-piece to form one big, beautiful crowdsourced rendition of “Episode V.”

    The result is a wickedly out-there, entertaining remake starring cats, dogs, babies, potatoes, Legos, cookies and everything between. There’s claymation, puppetry, some hilariously awful live acting, a galaxy made out of needlepoint, stunning animations and so many googly eyes.

    Check out a few of our favorite highlights:

    Here’s the Battle of Hoth, recreated with party balloons.
