We here at Star Wars Time love us some Star Wars art, and using poor grammar, which is a staple of our weekly podcast. We always talk Star Wars news and speculation, but we also feature a segment dedicated to Star Wars artists, be they fan artists, or paid, so it’s a big niche for us.
While browsing for amazing Star Wars art to share on our IG account (tag us or use #starwarstimeshow) today, I found a stellar stop motion video from mccannimation that features an iconic scene from Star Wars: A New Hope.
Using Star Wars Black Series figures, Jacob faithfully recreated the moments that led up to Luke and Leia having to swing across a chasm while fleeing Stormtroopers on the Death Star. The level of detail and polish is amazing to say the least, and I can’t even comprehend the amount of work and patience that went into creating this stop motion short. Again, with stop motion, the animation is a result of 1000s of images being stitched together like a flip book, so Jacob had to have taken an insane amount of stills to pull this little work of art off.
