THE SITH RELIC – Star Wars Fan Film

You know how we love Star Wars fan films here, and honestly, there’s no shortage of them out there to choose from. It seems there’s nearly as many Star Wars fan films as there are Star Wars fans. With that in mind, here’s an interesting one we dug up for you. This short film from Scruffy Looking Workshop was posted in Jan of this year and is just under 15 minutes long. It has a solid story, nice costuming and decent acting. It’s not just your typical lightsaber duel (not that there’s anything wrong with lightsabers, but we like to see something different). And if different is what you want, then you’re definitely going to get it with this one. There are some… uh… interesting little pieces in this one that you won’t see in other fan films. The reaction from those who have watched it seem mixed – either they love…

THE GREY JEDI : A STAR WARS STORY (Fan Film)

You guys know how I feel about fan films. I’ve said many times before that some of these fan films are just as good (or better in some ways) than a lot of the professional films out there. This is one that I can say with confidence is on that list. This is an absolutely amazing fan film! My only complaint is that it’s so short. I wanted to see more. I truly hope that this crew continues making more films because I’ll be first in line to get to see them. If you want to check out The Grey Jedi yourself, it’s shorter than 10 minutes so it won’t take up a lot of your day. It’s something you can do on a quick break even. So give it a watch! You’ll be so glad you did. See the short film here:  Prologue : As the War of…

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…

Hearts of Kyber – A Star Wars Fan-Film

You know how we love our fan films here! Honestly, it’s what holds me over in between official Star Wars movies. Some are of such great quality, you’d think they were professionally done, but even the ones that are not can still be fun to watch. I have seen pretty much every Star Wars fan film I can find and I always walk away pleased. That said, we try to bring you only the good ones here, since I know not everyone is as easily amused by this as I am. With that said, here’s another good one that’s definitely worth your time. It’s under 9 minutes long, so you can watch it on a quick break, or to unwind at the end of the day. It’s not going to take your entire evening, but it will give you some temporary entertainment. The acting is good, the costuming and makeup…

Days Past – A Star Wars Fan Film

You know how I love watching every Star Wars fan film I can find. I share some of my favorites with you here. Well, here’s one you can put on your list because I definitely have it at the top of mine. This is really a great film in and of its own right, but as a Star Wars fan, you’re going to love it. It’s very well done and for a short film (this one is under 20 minutes), it’s all the more important that you get it all right. There’s less time and more attention to detail that will be given by the viewer so it’s all the more important to get all the details straight. The acting is fantastic – seriously! I can’t say enough about how great the acting is. The plot and the story are like something right out of a book, and it will…

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…
