Paradise Decay has released a new video for his Minecraft project, which recreates the full film version of Star Wars – A New Hope. It’s looking pretty damn rad.

Watch on YouTube

In case you are unfamilair with it, the fan-film project from Minecraft map maker and machinima artist Grahame, has been three years in the making and upon completion will be free to view, as all monetization has been turned off and disabled for the film.

According to the man himself, in order to watch the final film with sound, viewers will need to fire up the original 1977 version on their DVD/Blu-ray player. This is because there will not be any sound in the final version.

All footage is taken from Minecraft and “no mods have been used, just custom textures and art.”

“All video footage is from the game itself and any characters featured are parodies of the original characters. These are depicted by ‘testificates’ and simple custom textures and skins,” wrote Paradise Decay.

At present, one hour and 10 minutes of the film is complete and should be completed next year.
