Watch The Interview, as Re-Enacted by Pencil Figures

Scene fromThe Interview: With Pencil Figures.

By now, you’re probably well aware that Sony canceled the planned theatrical release of The Interview, the Seth Rogen–James Franco comedy about an assassination plot to kill North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, because of hacker threats. Unfortunately, there are no announced plans to release the film online, which means that only a very small group of people has had the chance to see it in theaters.

Because some of us here at Slate were lucky enough to screen the film before the towering fist of censorship came down, we were able to recreate The Interview from memory for the benfit of our readers. We did not have the $42 million production budget of directors Rogen and Evan Goldberg, so we had to improvise a bit using office supplies. We hope you enjoy.
