WHATEVER HAPPENED TO MACE WINDU? (A Star Wars Fan Film)

Sometime after the fallout of “Revenge of the Sith” and before the events of “Rogue One”, Mace Windu found his way to a desert planet with no name, where he prepares his counter-strike against the Galactic Empire and his nemesis- Darth Vader. Here’s what happens when Windu faces up against Vader. You know how we love our fan films here and this is no exception. It’s a fun little short, clocking in at just over 10 minutes and it’s well worth taking the time to give it a watch. We think you’ll find it just as entertaining as we did, especially if you happen to be a fan of Quentin Tarantino, as explained below in a note from the director. Check it out, brought to you by blinky500. ~A WORD FROM CHRIS~ Written, shot and directed in the style of a Quentin Tarantino film, this short is meant to be as…

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: From the Shadows (A Fan Film)

To what lengths will two teens go to convince their superfan friend that they lived a Star Wars adventure? This fun, cute Star Wars fan film will answer that question. Drew Struckmeyer brings us “Star Wars: From the Shadows” and it’s a fun little short that’s worth your time to give a look. What’s it all about? Well, you really need to watch it for yourself to get the full experience but let me give you a little breakdown. It’s just over seven minutes long and tells a fun narrative of one guy trying to convince his young friend that he and another friend had a real life Star Wars experience. It starts off as the two play video games and young Wyatt says he “wishes” Star Wars was real. After stating that it’s “scientifically impossible” for that to happen in real life, Drew tells him a story he just can’t believe….

Survivors – Star Wars Fan film

It seems like December 2016 was the month of the fan film and we have another one for you to check out. Survivors, from Cinemage is a film that gets right to the action and suspense from the first scene. You’ll see a chase and a lightsaber fight all within the first minute. It really gets your Star Wars blood pumping to find out what happened and why. Who are the survivors? What are they surviving? Who will win this battle? Honestly, it might leave more questions than answers once you watch it all but personally, I loved how it whets the appetite and makes you want to see more. I hope they keep writing, keep acting, and keep filming. There’s nothing like true Star Wars fans to capture the spirit of the franchise and that’s part of what makes these fan films so much fun to watch. Even when they’re not…

Star Wars: Inquisition (A Fan Film)

A rural family’s patience is tested as the Jedi padawan they’ve been hiding for years is putting their family at increasing risk. With their father dead, and their crops not selling, it’s time to decide what to do. Evil comes knocking, and one Jedi finds you can’t hide forever. A coward can’t be a hero. This Star Wars fan film from ThePsychoJellyfish is a good watch. It attempts to bring a deeper story to the Star Wars universe. It comes in just over 13 minutes so it’s a quick watch. It’s a little slow in parts and some of the acting a little stiff in places, but all in all, it’s a great story and it’s produced well. It’s unique, shows the struggles real people would have in this position, and the price that is often paid for trying to do the right thing during a time of war. What happens when…

Han Solo: A Smuggler’s Trade – A Star Wars Fan Film

You know how I love the fan films and since I just saw Rogue One this week, I have been hungry for more Star Wars video. Fan films and shorts are a great way to get your fix while you await the next official films. Honestly, it’s more than a guilty pleasure because some of these fan-made films hold their own against the official films. So I stumbled across this one and as a fan of Han Solo (who isn’t?), I really enjoyed it. It comes in under 15 minutes so it won’t take up a lot of your day to give it a watch and it keeps with the feel and personality of Solo that we all know and love. There’s not a lot of actors who could pull off Han Solo so well but this one definitely is impressive. He has the look, the attitude, and the entire…

So that’s exactly what we have for you today. Here’s another great fan film that would classify as a short. It’s just under 12 minutes long but it has a great, intriguing story,…
