Star Wars fans (isn't that everyone?) will already be looking forward to The Force Awakens, due for release this December. But what if we're craving a taste of the franchise a little sooner?

Sure, there's Secret Cinema and the new Madame Tussauds exhibition, but they don't come cheap, and it would nice to see something for free. Well, fortunately that's about to be an option: Marc Hagan-Guirey's intricately-detailed scenes from the saga, all cut from a single sheet of paper (an art form known as kirigami).

The exhibition, which opens next week, features scenes that will be instantly recognisable to Star Wars fans: Han Solo's conversation with Greedo before the shoot-out, how to trip up an AT-AT, and Obi Wan's fateful lightsaber duel with Darth Vader.

Hagan-Guirey took to Kickstarter to fund the creation of the works and the subsequent exhibition. With such a stellar idea and many Star Wars fans out there, it came as no surprise that he was able to raise over £16,000 in a very short time.

The preview scenes look spectacular and our inner fanboy can't wait for this exhibition.

Cut Scene - The Exhibition: 12 Kirigami models inspired by Star Wars cut from a single sheet of paper will be on at 5th Base Gallery, 23 Heneage St, E1 5LJ from 8-16 August. Entrance is free.
