Star Wars: Heir to the Empire – Chapter 2

It’s fanfilm time again! If you’re a regular here, you know how much I love those. And if you’re not, well, I hope you stick around because we love writing about all things Star Wars and Star Wars gaming.

Up today we have Part 2 of Star Wars: Heir to the Empire from DarthAngelus.

I covered Part 1 for you back in June so if you missed that, go check it out first.

Chapter 2 of Heir to the Empire, by Timothy Zahn. Adapted into a short fanfilm. If you never read the Thrawn Trilogy, the whole trilogy of books is available via Amazon As the first three of many Star Wars spin-off novels, it marked the beginning of an era of rapid expansion of the Star Wars Expanded Universe. The titles of the three books are: * Heir to the Empire * Dark Force Rising * The Last Command

The Rebel Alliance has destroyed the Death Star, defeated Darth Vader and the Emperor, and driven the remnants of the old Imperial Starfleet to a distant corner of the galaxy.

Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting Jedi twins. And Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of Jedi Knights.

But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor’s warlords has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic….

Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments.
