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

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…

Star Wars Fan Film: Whisper in the Dark

Star Wars Fan Film Whisper in the Dark

It’s fan film time again! I really do love fan films and they bring out the best of the Star Wars community. people geeking out over what they love and coming together to bring other fans some fun and enjoyment as well. Even the “bad” fan films are good because they embody the spirit of what we love about Star Wars. Some of them are cheesy, some of them may not have professional-quality sound, or acting, or lighting. But they all embody the spirit of Star Wars and they nearly always have a great story. I suppose that is part of why I like them so much. So, here’s a fun one to entertain you for a bit. It’s just at 15 minutes long so you can watch it on a break even. It’s from TheJW Phillips and hopefully we see more from them in the future. Set in a…

BUCKETHEADS: A Star Wars Story

BUCKETHEADS A Star Wars Story

You know we love our fan films here and we have another fun one to bring to you today. Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a Stormtrooper? What do they go through in life? What do they experience while trying to carry out their job? Now, in this new film, you can discover some answers to that. BUCKETHEADS is a Star Wars Fan Film from the Stormtroopers’ perspective. Shot in September 2017 in Vancouver, BC, Canada, it was a wonderful journey, with over 76 people directly involved in this effort to tell a Star Wars Story from the Imperial point of view. This film wouldn’t have been possible without the involvement of the 501st Legion, Vader’s fist. Learn more here: http://www.501st.com | http://www.whitearmor.net I had the very nerdy pleasure of meeting some of the 501st before and I can tell you they are amazing and they work…

Vader Episode 1: Shards of the Past

You know how we love our fan films here but we haven’t had any for you in a while. That is going to change today, however, because we have stumbled across an awesome new film for you to enjoy. As far as fan films go, this one is really top of the game. It will keep you hooked from start to finish and it really shows that it IS possible to take older characters and bring them back in new stories and new ways and it works. And it doesn’t feel like a fan film. That’s probably one of the best parts. It doesn’t feel like people in costumes. It is immersive. It is realistic. It will suck you in and you’ll forget it’s not an official film. In fact, some fans even feel like it’s better than some of the new official films we’re getting in the franchise. Yeah,…

The Dark Resurgence: A Star Wars Story (Fan Film)

There are so many things to love about May 4th, but of those, one of my favorites is all the Star Wars fan films that come out. There are so many great Star Wars fan films out there and in May of every year, we get to see even more. It’s an exciting time for any Star Wars fan. With that in mind, here’s another great film to add to your list. It’s just under 15 minutes long, so it’s a quick watch, but I think you’ll like it as much as we do. From Mike The Marine: “I’m proud to finally present, The Dark Resurgence: A Star Wars Story!!! My team and I worked hard on this film for a little over 2 years! Due to my school and work, the visual effects and editing took much longer. But in the end, the Force was with me and I…
