Countdown – A Star Wars Fan Film

Here’s another great Star Wars fan film that went above and beyond to share their story. I’ll let you watch it to see what I mean by that statement, but for now, let’s move on to the story. In a desperate attempt to save the future, Xenia travels back in time to a pivotal moment in history–the untimely assassination of Senator Desera–hoping that by saving the senator, she can change the course of history for the better. It was great story, it has action, and the fight/lightsaber scenes are great. The acting is good and the dialogue isn’t stiff like with some fan films. Costumes and props are also nicely done. All in all, it hits all the marks for what I’d say makes a great film. You can tell a lot of time and dedication went into this which is part of what I love the most about Star…

Star Wars Origins: Revan Fan Film

Fans of Knights of the Old Republic and especially Revan can rejoice, for there is a new fan film on the way, set to feature Revan in his youth. Eddie Lee Henderson is leading the Star Wars Origins: Revan fan film project, which he describes as “the most ambitious fan film ever produced.” Henderson’s Dallas-based production company, Black Ginger Media, is currently working on this project and aims to launch on Kickstarter on January 9, 2017. The film tells the story of the young Revan sneaking into a cantina reminiscent of Mos Eisley. While he’s there, he’s witness to a black-market deal between a Mandalorian and another trader. When the trade sours and other people see what the valuable object of the trade was, chaos breaks out as everyone tries to get their hands on this precious item. The fact that there is a Jedi in the mix when this…

Nadia Grell Fan Drawing is Amazing

Reddit user zulzulfie shared her SWTOR art with fans and it’s really awesome. The first drawing I ever saw was her rendition of a cute little Nadia Grell. Then I browsed through her Tumblr and saw she has a lot of cool stuff. I know I’m a sucker for fan art but this is really good and I love the cute, “girlie” style to it. She says she’s going to do male characters too, after she gets through the female ones and I really look forward to seeing that as well. They remind me of the chibis you can find of superheros and similar styled art. Here’s one she did of Vette that I really like: I love how they have a cartoony, cutesy feel to them. She has a tiny Satele Shan, tiny Senya, Lana Beniko, a drawing of Vaylin that I adore, and more. It’s really worth taking the time…

Star Wars On the Go: Awesome Themed SUV

If I was still living in Texas I’d have to take a drive and try to spot this fantastic vehicle for myself. The Houston Chronicle explains what you see in the photo below: “An SUV spotted outside a Toys R Us in the Woodlands this week is covered in iconic objects from the movie such as the Millennium Falcon and even displays a scene with Luke Skywalker and his green saber in the rear window. But what really makes this the coolest “Star Wars” display is the license plate that reads B KENOBI, a reference to the movie’s Obi-Wan Kenobi who is later known as Ben Kenobi.” Photo: Katelyn Sclafani What is one of the coolest personalized Star Wars items you’ve seen?

Show Us Your Star Wars!

Whether you’ve seen the new film or been living under a rock the past couple of weeks, it’s very apparent that the Star Wars craze is here to stay. It doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon. With this in mind, I’ve now taken to a little personal gamed called “Spot the Star Wars” and started taking photos of Star Wars items and displays that I come across throughout my daily life. So this got me thinking… what are other people seeing in their parts of the world? With this, an idea was born: Show us your Star Wars! We invite you to head over to our Facebook fanpage and share your own photos of Star Wars scenes, displays, merchandise or other goodies while out and about. We may even feature some of our favorite pics here on the site in a future post. To get it started,…

The Weight of Forgiveness – Star Wars Fan Film

We have something fun and interesting to bring you today. This just released SWTOR fan film has our attention. It’s called “The Weight of Forgiveness” and it’s all about the birth of a Jedi. It’s in Italian and it’s about 15 minutes or so in length so it’s a short watch. There are different possible interpretations of the short, which is part of its appeal. The synopsis says it is a Star Wars fan film “open to interpretation” and there have already been several ideas as to what it all means. If you know and love Star Wars (like all of us here do), you may appreciate it on those grounds alone but we ask you to watch it with an open mind and don’t limit yourself just to the Star Wars universe, then see what you think of it. Some say it is the story of redemption of a pastor…
