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…

The Fallen Knight – A Kylo Ren Origin Story – Star Wars Fan Film

Here we go… it’s time for another Star Wars fan film review. You guys know how much I love these. So, this one is all about Kylo Ren. This film from RZM Productions checks in at just over 22 minutes long and tells us the origin story of Kylo Ren. It has great acting, a great story, and it’s as professional as I’ve seen a fan film come (although it was well funded by the community). If you have not seen it yet, go ahead and take some time to sit down and give it a watch. You won’t be sorry. It is really a unique and fantastic story that leaves you asking more questions. It would be great to see where this same team would carry the story if they had the chance to do so. If you’re sitting around on winter break looking for a great way to pass some…

Rebel Assault – Star Wars Battlefront Cinematic Film

A Rebel Assault Team arrives on the planet Tatooine to attempt and drive out Imperial Occupancy, only to be met such resistance that it will be the battle of their lives! You know how we love Star Wars films. Here is another one to add to your list. This is a Star Wars Battlefront cinematic. If you haven’t seen it yet, we highly recommend you take a few minutes out of your day to make it happen. It’s under 30 minutes long and it will not disappoint. If you’ve been playing Battlefront, and if you’re looking forward to the new game, this cinematic will get you excited about playing. If you don’t play the game, but  you love Star Wars, you’ll still enjoying watching it. They put over 11 months into filming and now you can view all of the hard work for yourself. You may have seen their previous…

Kylo Ren: Smuggler’s Son (A Star Wars Fan Film)

Brought to you by Shattered Star Productions, here’s a short (just over 10 minutes long) fan film that we absolutely love. The story is moving, the special effects are great, and the entire production is well done. If you’re into Star Wars fan films, here’s another you’re going to want to check out. Have you ever thought about what it would be like to be a smuggler’s son? What kind of family life would a smuggler have? Honestly, the real reason many of them had no family at all is because it’s easier to fly solo than to be away from the ones who care about you. Here’s a film that touches on some of those issues. A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away… The Dark Side of the Force has a new acolyte: the young man once known as Ben Solo, but who now terrorizes the galaxy…

Regrets of the Past – Star Wars Fan Film

I love Star Wars fan films, something you probably already know if you’ve been following the site for any length of time. There is no shortage of these films on the internet today but some far outside the others when it comes to quality, story, and all those other things that make a great film. Here’s one that is definitely worth the watch. A lot more work went into this than what we see with short films and it shows. It’s nearly an hour long and it had more than 150 people on the crew. Many working professionals put their own spare time into this project to make it possible for us to enjoy. It’s amazing and is truly a cut above many of the others we write about and share with you here on the site. This one deserves more views. So go ahead and pop some popcorn, or…

Star Wars: Rise of the Empire – A Star Wars Fan Film

An empire will rise. Join the rebels in the biggest battles across the galaxy in this epic Star Wars fan film. This is a really awesome fan film from BTV that you have to see for yourself. Created entirely in GTA V using mods, this was an exhaustive creation with over 125 shots and fx, Rise of the Empire is their biggest Grand Theft Auto machinima. This is absolutely stunning! Visually it’s bright and crisp. The story and cinematography are engaging. The sound effects and music are spot-on. This film will get you excited just the way a Star Wars film should. You’ll be on the edge of your seat to see what happens next. Personally, I’m a fan of machinima already. I think it takes a lot of creativity and they can be so much fun to watch but this one goes above and beyond most I have seen. It’s clean, it’s realistic,…

Star Wars: LIBERATION – Fan Film

You know how we love the Star Wars fan films. Well, it’s been a while since I’ve been able to bring you a great fan film so I think we are overdue. In this film, Liberation, we learn the story of a prisoner of war trying to negotiate a way out from his captors. The negotiation goes south quickly when he realizes they aren’t telling him the truth and it only gets more interesting from there. It’s just over 11 minutes long so this short will not take up a lot of your time but it definitely will leaving you wishing there was more. It’s a fun little watch and we highly recommend you give it a go for yourself. “It is a time of great peril for the Rebel Alliance. One of its fiercest warriors Vince Nurada has been captured by the Empire and held captive aboard an imperial…

Dark Jedi Revan’s Apprentice Fan Film

You know how we like our fan films around here and also how we love pointing out some of the best and sharing with you. Here’s a cool little video we came across that’s under seven minutes long but really pulls you into the story. It’s not perfect. It’s not professionally made, but it’s a good start and while they said this was just done for a school assignment, I’d love to see them make some more short films. They have a little something going here for just a student and some friend volunteers. So if you want something creative to pass a little time, we highly suggest you check it out. It’s a fun little fan film. Zoukmazing says of the video, “This was zero budget with no crew, and made for a visual effects uni assignment. I spent many sleepless nights to get this completed on time. Not made for…

The Best April Fools’ Gag this Year

If you missed it the other day, you must see this trailer for Fury of Maul on Netflix. Really, if you weren’t already a Netflix lover, would this not make you subscribe immediately? “Happy April Fools’ Day! Darth Maul makes his live-action series debut on Netflix! A mysterious, dark power is butchering those on both the light and dark side of the Force.” Directed and Shot by Sean Finnegan Seriously, this looks awesome. If you didn’t know already, it was just an April Fool’s joke from IGN and that’s really too bad because it would make a great series. Star Wars fans everywhere can cry like that poor little boy who’s dad let him watch not knowing it was prank. May we all go to our beds and bawl our eyes out because this will never come to be. Honestly, April Fool’s pranks are the worst, are they not? I…

“Kara” A Star Wars Fan Film

Star Wars fan films… oh, you know how much we love them! Here is a fun one put out by A Whitelist Production just a couple of weeks ago. It’s called “Kara” and it’s a little over 7 minutes long so it’s not going to eat up your entire afternoon to give it a watch. I will say this though: it left me wanting to see more from these guys. For an unofficial Star Wars film, it’s pretty darn good. It’s not Hollywood perfect quality but it’s really darn good and has a good feel to the story. Because they kept it so short and sweet, I think it even adds more to the appeal. Some of these fan films are too drawn out and it makes it much more difficult to capture and hold the attention of the audience for that length of time. It also draws us in,…
