The Great Warrior Skanderbeg (Albanian: Skenderbeu, Russian: Великий воин Албании Скандербег, Velikiy voin Albanii Skanderbeg) is a 1954 Albanian-Soviet biopic directed by Sergei Yutkevich. It was entered into the 1954 Cannes Film Festival where it earned the International Prize. Yutkevich also earned the Special Mention award for his direction.

The film is a biography of George Kastriot Skanderbeg (1405 – 1468), widely known as Skanderbeg, a 15th-century Albanian lord who defended his land against the Ottoman Empire for more than two decades.

In 2012, for the 100th anniversary of Albanian independence, the film was remastered for high definition with new voices, music, and sound effects.
