An enterprising Star Wars fan is giving other devotees of Lucas' universe a new hope; a new, low-resolution, super-blocky hope. "Paradise Decay" is recreating Star Wars: Episode IV inside of Minecraft, using only custom textures and art - no special mods.

The project, which has been in development for more than three years, is nearing completion. The new "Breath" trailer, seen above, will "probably" be the last preview we get before Paradise Decay releases the full movie in 2015, according to the YouTube description. Even though the fan film will be free to view when it's *Emperor Palpatine voice* complete ... you'll still need a DVD version of the original movie for sound.

Then, young Padawan, you will be ready.
