Count Dooku, using his knowledge of the dark side as a lure, is causing many to leave the Jedi Order. An award winning short film set in the Star Wars universe, Star Wars Betrayal deals with a Padawans reoccuring dream about his past and his doubts about his current mission assigned to him by his mentor, Jedi Master Allouben.
Tales of the New Republic was a film released with much anticipation on May 25, 2007. There was a lot of speculation at the time that this film was a trailer for The Clone Wars 2008 series. It was actually a class project at The Digital Animation & Visual Effects School in Orlando, FL and I am sure it was done to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars. The film plays like an animated trailer for a possible new series and is very well done. A must see!

Throughout this trial the prosecution and defense provide evidence, counter-evidence, and double counter-evidence drawn from the 1977, 1997, and 2004 releases of the movie, in which the events in question are represented in three distinct ways.

Fett, motivated by revenge for his father’s death, proves effective…
