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…

If you’re prepping for Star Wars Celebration in just a few more days, you may want to plan your strategy in advance. I know every time I go to a convention, I try to plot out my schedule with the map in advance. Sure, you can just show up and wing it, but places are packed and if you’ve never been there before, it can be disorienting.

LucasFilm Games is Hiring

Lucasfilm is looking to get back into the games industry. They have posted a list of jobs at Disney Careers. Many of these are positions for Lucasfilm Games. There are open positions for: ProducerBrand Art Coordinator Brand Marketing CoordinatorAssistant ProducerAssociate Brand Art DirectorAssociate Brand Marketing ManagerAssistant Producer – Asia Could this mean a revival of LucasArts? It’s too early to tell right now because it seems like it’s just going to be LucasFilm for games under the existing EA contract. It’s actually not likely that it’s a revival of LucasArts we we knew it before. Most likely, it’s something else. These are publisher positions, not developer positions, so they are not doing internal games. Instead, they are working on projects already in the EA/Disney umbrella. Either way, it’s interesting. And if you’re looking for a position in the industry, this could be a great open door for you. I definitely…

Replaying the Classics: TIE Fighter

It’s another session of “Replaying the Classic”. Boy, do I love these! It’s so much fun to see my favorite games coming back into the forefront. It’s so much fun to reminisce over the best Star Wars games of yesteryear, and it’s a great introduction to the younger generation of Star Wars fans who may not have had the great pleasure of playing these the first time around. Some of the games that have been shared in this series so far have been favorites of mine. Others were a little before my time, or on a platform I didn’t own. But this one is one that I definitely played a lot! As a little girl, I dreamed of becoming a pilot and seeing all the ships in Star Wars really made my dreams full of flying them in space. Video games made that fantasy at least a little closer to…

★Evolution of Star Wars games from Atari to PlayStation 4★ ★1982 – 2018★ Star Wars gaming is as old as me! Every year or so, I get excited about writing one of these. This year, there’s an awesome video compilation I can add to it (up to 2018 games).

Seriously though, every time I look at this, I see how far things have really come. How far the gaming industry has come, how much the graphics and playstyle has evolved, and how much we must love our Star Wars because it’s still alive and well for new generations to enjoy! Check out the video to see a mashup of all of these great Star Wars games over the years (over 35…
