This past semester, the Digital Video department of the University of Advancing Technology embarked on well-tread ground with Bohemian Rhapsody: Star Wars Edition. Today, it has finally been released on their YouTube channel, and it is a sight to see.

One thing to note up front is that it looks like something straight out of Epic Rap Battles of History, and that's something of note considering all they had to work with was a single green screen room and several After Effects prodigies. Then again, this is from the same department that created the Mass Effect fan film Red Sand, starring Male Shepard himself Mark Meer, which was actually entered into Machinima's 2013 IFF recently.


If you aren't familiar with UAT, it's an accredited geek college found in Tempe, Arizona (in the outskirts of Phoenix). In addition to videos like these, they also house a Network Security department that has been endorsed by the NSA (but controversially housed a one-time member of LulzSec), as well as an active multi-pronged Game Dev department.

UPDATE: This video just reached 1 million views over the weekend, and has been plugged by Brian May's website, the front pages of IGN and YouTube, and several other fan sites.
