Cast your mind back to when news of a female free edit of Star Wars: The Last Jedi began to circulate.

The version of the latest Star Wars film was illegally uploaded onto a torrent site by and was reportedly called The Last Jedi: De-Feminized Fanedit.

Pedestian.tv downloaded the version of the movie and confirmed that all of the scenes involving female characters had been removed, meaning the film was only 46 minutes long.

Quite why you would want to remove great actors like Carrie Fisher, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran and Daisy Ridley from Star Wars and make it less-great is beyond us.

Thankfully, the internet is a wonderful place (at times) and Twitter user @LoganJames has edited another film in response; Saving Private Ryan.

If you've seen Steven Spielberg's World War II epic you'll realise that the film is basically 98 per cent male characters, with virtually no screen time for women.

This edit removes all the scenes with just men...

That's right, no Tom Hanks, no Matt Damon, no Vin Diesel. Just scenes featuring only women and shots of scenery.

How long would the film be if it didn't feature any men? The answer is just 2 minutes 20 seconds, which is astonishing considering the original film is 2 hours 49 minutes long.

The clip or should we say "short film" has quickly gone viral and it has prompted Logan to make a cut of another famous male-centric film; The Shawshank Redemption.

Without the likes of Morgan Freeman or Tim Robbins this beloved prison drama clocks in at just 1 minute 37 seconds (original run time is 2 hours 22 minutes).

As you can imagine some people weren't too happy about these edits but everyone else seemed to enjoy them.
