Scoundrels: A Smuggler’s Tale (A Star Wars Fan Film)

We have another Star Wars fan film for you to check out today. This was is new – was just added to YouTube on May 4th. They’ve done a really great job of it. It comes in at just over 20 minutes so it’s longer than a typical short, but shorter than a full-length movie. It has a good story, nice casting and an interesting plot. It’s a smuggler’s story and I was just talking to a friend today about how I have always loved smugglers. Funny that I would come across this right after that conversation. It has all the elements of a good smuggler story and a good Star Wars story. I don’t want to ruin it for you though, so really you just need to give it a watch for yourself. We’ve embedded it but head on over to their YouTube account and follow them if you want…

Knights Of The Old Republic Is STILL The Best Star Wars Game

Are you a fellow fan of Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR)? If you’ve been around our blog for a while, you know that we have regularly posted about this game and I’ve said myself how it is one of the best, if not THE best Star Wars game to date. Well, I’m not alone in this opinion. The Star Wars franchise is not putting out as many games these days as they once were, and there is a higher quality demand being placed on the games that do come out. But how do they measure up against a classic like KOTOR? This is a question that ScreenRant takes head-on in this piece that says KOTOR is STILL the best Star Wars game. The author, Derek Stauffer says: “Knights of the Old Republic was one of the first Star Wars stories of its kind. It ignored all mention of the Skywalker family…

One day I’ll become… (Star Wars fan film)

You know how we love our fan films here. Here’s a little golden nugget that is absolutely worth your time to watch. It clocks in at just under 12 minutes, but they have absolutely done a lot with the time they have here. They say that they had no budget for this and it’s honestly amazing what they’ve created from so little. True talent is displayed here and I hope we’ll be able to see more films from him because it’s fantastic. For a fan film, it’s truly impressive. The quality is there, the story, and the visual effects are also amazing. It could easily be a tie-in or trailer to a professional Star Wars film. From Roman Gregorička: “This is a short fan film, our tribute to the Star Wars saga.It was made only with delight, enthusiasm and a zero budget.” See for yourself here: “It has always been my dream…

Why the Last Jedi Is a Powerful Fable on the Importance of Teaching

The Star Wars series had been enthralling the global audience since 1977 with the three generations of the Skywalker family, starting with Anakin Skywalker in The Phantom Menace to Ben Solo/Kylo Ren in The Force Awakens. And now we are on the cusp of bidding farewell to the series after four decades with the release of Star Wars: Episode IX. It would be perhaps safe to say that Star Wars has been one of those rare franchises with a wide range of merchandises ranging from dresses to toys. It also includes electronic gadgets, products for office use, etc. You can get to see various themed online slots games at online casinos and online bingo websites. Most of them have Star Wars themed games. Log in and find your favourite game online. One major reason for the success of the Star Wars franchise will be the lessons that can be learnt…

What do you think about a book about Star Wars Galaxies? SWG was one of the most popular Star Wars games and to this day, hardcore fans of SWG are still talking about those good ole days. What if you had a book written by a fellow fan to help commemorate the game and the great times it contained? You can learn more about it and follow the updates here on Facebook. Here’s a snapshot of the table of contents so you can get a good idea of what the book is about: It was shared, along with an FAQ from interested fans.

The Lord Of Pain Darth Sion: A Star Wars Story

Here’s another Star Wars story from The Scoundrel’s Cantina. It was first published back in Dec of 2016, but if you missed it back then, you can still give it a watch. We highly recommend any of these videos from the Scoundrel’s Cantina. They really know their Star Wars stuff, and the videos are well made. They’re entertaining, and very informative as you are sure to learn something new in every one you watch, even if you’re already a super fan. This one is all about another famous Darth – the Lord of Pain Darth Sion. He’s not as well known to your layperson as far as Darths go, but he has an interesting and deep history that is explored fully in this video. They use a mix of both the Expanded Universe and the “Official” Star Wars Canon. He was a human who became a Sith Maurader in the war. Rather than…
