Shot-for-shot Minecraft remake of Star Wars Episode IV gets a final trailer

Posted on July 21, 2014 AT 02:33am

The shot-for-shot Minecraft remake of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope is nearing completion, according to creator Grahame Skeavington, also known as “Paradise Decay” on Youtube, and to celebrate he has released the final trailer before the fan film’s release next year.

According to Skeavington’s latest report, around one hour and 10 minutes of the film is complete and it is currently on track for a 2015 release. Skeavington added 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 around three years and some of the individual sets used took up to six months to build. The film has been created in vanilla Minecraft with no mods at all, just custom textures.

It’s worth noting that once the remake is released viewers will need to own a copy of “the original 1977 version of the film,” to sink up the audio with the Minecraft remake. Presumably this is to avoid the copyright lawyers knocking on the door.
