An Amazing Version Of Star Wars Made From Everything That Inspired It

This is still an early version — Hellmann says he hopes to add more classic influences into the cut before he's finished — but it's still a fantastic watch for Star Wars fans and cinema buffs alike.

(Although to be fair, a great deal of Space: 1999 was lifted from 2001: A Space Odyssey." So, yeah.)
