MACE WINDU – Star Wars Fan Film

It’s fan film time again and I love everything about this one. For one, I’m a big fan of Mace Windu and here we get to see a young Windu in action. Next, the acting was really great and the costuming was of professional level and keeping with the time period. It has the staple of a great Star Wars film – an awesome lightsaber duel. And the story is really great. While it’s a short film, you get immersed it in right away and I can’t wait to see more films by them. I wish they’d do more Windu but I’m sure anything they produce will be a fun, entertaining watch. Nearly 20 years before Phantom Menace, young Jedi Knight Mace Windu locates a missing Jedi. What he encounters is unexpected. See for yourself here: From the creators, Full Fledged Pro: Subscribe for more cinematic short films! Thanks for…

Star Wars Smuggler’s Fate

All of this social isolation means I’m spending even more time at home than usual (and that’s saying something) and I’m finding one way I enjoy passing that time is with new videos. And if it’s Star Wars, well, you know I’m gonna watch it. Star Wars fan films are totally my thing. The good, the bad, the ugly – and everything in between! I’ve said it before but there’s something great about even the “bad” fan films. The spirit of Star Wars that goes into each one is special in and of itself. Here’s the latest one I’m enjoying: Star Wars Smuggler’s Fate. It’s just over 10 minutes long and is the final part of a trilogy, so be sure to watch the others first, if you haven’t. While this one is not Hollywood-level acting or videography, it has a charge to it. I also really like the costuming…

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…

Remnants of the Order – A Star Wars Fan Film

If you’re stuck in your house for social isolation, it’s a great time to catch up on some Star Wars fan films! That’s what I’ve been doing and I have a few great ones to bring to you over the next few days (or weeks). Starting with Remnants of the Order. This one is from FantastFilms and it’s a full-length film that comes in a little over 20 minutes long. The acting is great, the characters have real personality, and the film overall is well shot. I really love the look and feel of the whole thing We even get to see some personalities from the Troopers and it makes them feel more humanized and not just like fighter bots like some films. If it feels a little slow in the beginning, give it time. I got so invested around mid-way through, I just had to see what happened next!…

KENOBI – A Star Wars Fan Film

If you’ve been a reader here for a while, you know that I love fan films. There’s something special about the energy that fellow fans put into Star Wars projects and I love it! This film, KENOBI by Jamie Costa via YouTube is a perfect example of what I love so much about fan films. It has a true Star Wars feel to it, and it ticks all the boxes of what makes a great film. You can see it for yourself here: A really cool factoid about this fan film: they got James Arnold Taylor, the voice of Obi-Wan in the Clone Wars to be in their FAN film? This is sooo awesome! If you didn’t recognize him, he’s Leegus, the Empire Captain. How awesome is that little cameo? I just love it! This short film has amazing acting, storytelling and real emotions that pull you in and keep…

DARK JEDI – A Star Wars Fan Film

I have another interesting fan film for you today. This one is fairly new so you may have missed it. It was published back on December 13th by urbanamadei on YouTube. It features a popular YouTube Parkour artist and a Holly wood stuntwoman for intense action fight scenes that look and feel realistic. Dark Jedi – A Star Wars Fan-Film with Parkour YouTuber Urbanamadei and Hollywood Stuntwoman Marie Mouroum from Star Wars Rise of Skywalker. Made by Lorenz Hideyoshi Ruwwe. See why one viewer said, ” This lightsaber duel makes the Last Jedi look like 6 yr olds with broomsticks!!” Check it out for yourself here: The choreography is clearly the star of the show on this one. The acting can come off a bit cheesy throughout, but that’s almost standard in fan films and didn’t prevent me from enjoying the short. However, it’s the choreography that steals the show….

Star Wars Fan Film: Stormtrooper Target Practice

It’s fan film time again! You know how I love those. This one from Millquas Movies is so worth the watch. It’s a great concept, acted and shot well, and it’s truly comedy gold. It’s not new, but even if you saw it years ago, it’s worth watching it again. The first annual Storm Trooper Target Practice. Fan film made for the Star Wars fan film awards, 2015. Check it out: “You’re kind of tall to be a stormtrooper…” “Sorry sir, it won’t happen again.” Hilarious one-liners everywhere. This would be an amazing series. I’d tune in every week to see what shenanigans the Stormtroopers were getting into next. Seriously. What do you think? I thought it was a fun little short (under 8 mins) and now it has me daydreaming of my ROTC days if we were all Stormtroopers… haha Join the forum discussion on this post
