I know exactly what you're thinking. Star Wars wasn't Australian enough. I know, I know. I've thought it too. Luckily, a bunch of enterprising Aussies have gone and made their own incredible fan film which imagines a universe solely inhabited by Australians. Kind of like most youth hostels then.

A few months ago a trailer debuted, but now the whole 30-minute short is available online. According to the creators, Michael Cox and Bryan Meakin, their film "finally answers the age old question, that has confounded many a film buff before: What would happen if you crossed Star Wars with an Australian beer commercial. Answer? 'Star Wars Downunder'"

So crack open a tinnie, fire up the barbie and check out the entire film below:


Well, I thought it was rather bloody good, what did you think? Let us know below.
