A trailer for an upcoming shot-for shot remake of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope is out showing George Lucas’ monumental sci-fi film made in Minecraft

A shot-for-shot remake of Star Wars made using MInecraft is nearing completion according to the film’s creator Grahame Skeavington (also known as “Paradise Decay” on Youtube). In honour of the achievement a new trailer has been put together showing some Star Wars scenes relived in the Minecraft world.

According to a recent report from Skeavington around one hour 10 minutes of the new Minecraft Star Wars film has been shot so far with the finalised version due to come out in 2015. He has also noted that, ”NO money or profit is to be made from this project and monetization is disabled. It is being created by a fan, for the fans.”

The project has been in development for three years with some of the film sets taking up to six months to build. Minecraft Star Wars is being made without the use of any additional Minecraft Mods, although custom textures have been added.

When the final movie is released you’ll need to have a copy of the original 1977 film in order to get the sound track as the Minecraft Star Wars remake will have no sound to avoid legal wranglings.

Below is the trailer for Star Wars done the Minecraft way along accompanied by some Darth Vadar heavy breathing.
