Awesome animated music video retells entire Star Wars trilogy

So George Lucas wants to make 3-D versions of all six Star Wars films. Good idea? Bad idea? We won't know until 2012. But meanwhile, a talented musician and animator has made his own version of Star Wars that gets as far away from 3-D as possible.

Jeremy Messsersmith wrote a song about Star Wars and created an accompanying music video animated with paper versions of all the familiar characters.

Check out the extremely sweet clip below.
