Jawas hijack C-3PO and R2-D2 in fantastic fan-made Star Wars short

What do you get when you combine educated VFX students, a love for Star Wars and three months of lead time? This, and it's awesome.

A new fan-made CGI Star Wars short is in the wild, thanks to director Brad Murphy and the June 2012 graduating class of the Digital Animation and Visual Effects School.

Here's the synopsis:

C-3PO and R2-D2 embark on a rollicking adventure when the Jawas hijack an experimental Mon Calimari starship.
If this is what you get to do in visual effects classes, I think we all got into the wrong business. Because this looks like fun, and lots of it.
