Star Wars Fan Short with 70s Look and Feel is Definitely Worth a Watch

Dark Empire Episode 1: The Destiny of a Jedi is a recently released short film from WilkinsAnimations. With a run-time of approximately 12 minutes, it’s definitely not the length that makes it stand out. Instead, it’s unique, 1970s-era animation style and great story line are what keep you interested. In fact, the short is so good it actually feels like a teaser – just casually wetting your appetite for a full-length episode. The creator does have additional episodes in the works, which is exciting because this talented artist may be able to bring in a big enough audience to capture the attention of the likes of Lucasfilm Animation. The story follows an adventure featuring Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO. R2-D2, and Luke Skywalker. The events take place a few years beyond the battle of Endor. A new, unknown disturbance within the force has appeared in the galaxy, threatening all…

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

Fan Film: Battle of the Dreadnoughts

Give it a watch on your lunch break, if you want. It’s a lot of fun to watch and it’s very, very well done. Seriously, it could have (and should have) been an actual movie scene.

But here we get to see one person’s idea of what that might look like. It’s called Force of Darkness, and the short is just over 10 minutes long. So grab yourself some popcorn or a bag of chips and settle in for a little look-see.

Star Wars Fan Film: The Young Jedi

Star Wars Fan Film The Young Jedi

If you’re a regular reader here, you know how I love Star Wars fan films. There’s something really magical about the way a fan community can come together to create beautiful works of art like we often see in these fan films. There are different reasons why people make Star Wars fan films but the love of the franchise is one thing that connects them all. It’s also the great connector that brings all of us, the viewers, in to watch these films as well. Here’s one from back in 2018. but it’s good and worth another watch even if you did see it before. It’s under 5 minutes long so this short is not going to take up your whole day, but you’ll be really impressed by it, I’m sure. It’s a lot of fun to watch and it has great visual effects, which makes sense, as that is…

Star Wars Fan Film “Shrouded Destiny”

Star Wars Fan Film - Shrouded Destiny

Here’s the start of a very interesting fan film. Shahbaz Sarwar was born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark and has been working on a film draft for 2 1/2 years. This is a test shot of that script in action. I really don’t want to ruin it by telling you much more about the film/story itself. You just need to watch it. It’s just over 6 minutes, so it’s not going to take up a lot of your time, but I think you’ll be glad you watched. It had me both rolling with laughter and screaming at my screen. It’s good. Very good. I’m going to let you see for yourself, but allow me to tell you a bit about the creator and the project itself. This is what Sarwar has to say about it: “Like many people, “The Force Awakens” really got a lot of people back into Star…

ODYSSEY: A Star Wars Story – Fan Film

ODYSSEY A Star Wars Story (2018 Fan Film)

Odyssey has been a project in the works for over two years! It was a labor of love, talent, and hard work for sure. They have done a truly amazing job with this one. Honestly, it’s so above caliber that I almost don’t want to call it a “fan film” (and you guys know how much I love my fan films). Ever wondered what it would be like to see stormtroopers in a film like Saving Private Ryan? Well, this fan film is as close as you can get. This film is set in the Star Wars universe and it’s all about a war, and follows the life of a young rebel named Quinn on his first mission with the Odyssey Squadron. It has dramatic and uplifting music, great costumes (Rebel and Imperial uniforms that look professionally-made), great stories, and realistic acting. It ticks all the boxes for a really…

Star Wars - Battle of Sullust - Fan-Film

Ah, fan films… one thing that brings the Star Wars community leap years ahead of other fanatics. We love our Star Wars stories, games, and lore. And it shows in the sheer amount of fan films that are out there, along with the production quality and the time that gets put into making them. In Battle of Sullust, we get to experience an awesome fan film with great CGI, music, story and backdrops. It definitely feels like a fan film, but this isn’t a bad thing, since if you’ve been a regular here, you know I love them. This story takes place moments before the events in Star Wars The Clone Wars: Nightsisters. Anakin Skywalker joins in the battle for Sullust against the Separatists, offering help to the soldiers of the 144th Legion after they were stranded on the battlefield after the death of their general. This battle is important…
