The Dark Resurgence: A Star Wars Story (Fan Film)

There are so many things to love about May 4th, but of those, one of my favorites is all the Star Wars fan films that come out. There are so many great Star Wars fan films out there and in May of every year, we get to see even more. It’s an exciting time for any Star Wars fan. With that in mind, here’s another great film to add to your list. It’s just under 15 minutes long, so it’s a quick watch, but I think you’ll like it as much as we do. From Mike The Marine: “I’m proud to finally present, The Dark Resurgence: A Star Wars Story!!! My team and I worked hard on this film for a little over 2 years! Due to my school and work, the visual effects and editing took much longer. But in the end, the Force was with me and I…

Star Wars: Dresca – Award-Winning Fan Film

Here is another great Star Wars fan film. This one from Damsel in Damnation in honor of May the 4th. Not only is this an awesome short, but it’s also great to see the female lead and a fan film written, directed, and produced by a female fan. As a fellow female Star Wars fan and nerd, I love seeing this and supporting women doing an amazing job in this field. It has great acting, great CGI and effects and a wonderful story that will keep you hooked until the very end. It’s actually written and performed well enough that it could be part of the official canon (maybe minus a nitpick but overall, a winner). It’s honestly one of the best Star Wars fan films I’ve seen, and those of you who read our site often know that I have seen a lot of them. It has a great, original story,…

Scoundrels: A Smuggler’s Tale (A Star Wars Fan Film)

We have another Star Wars fan film for you to check out today. This was is new – was just added to YouTube on May 4th. They’ve done a really great job of it. It comes in at just over 20 minutes so it’s longer than a typical short, but shorter than a full-length movie. It has a good story, nice casting and an interesting plot. It’s a smuggler’s story and I was just talking to a friend today about how I have always loved smugglers. Funny that I would come across this right after that conversation. It has all the elements of a good smuggler story and a good Star Wars story. I don’t want to ruin it for you though, so really you just need to give it a watch for yourself. We’ve embedded it but head on over to their YouTube account and follow them if you want…

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…

Together – A Star Wars Fan Film

Here’s another Star Wars fan film that you need to check out if you haven’t already. It’s called “Together” and it’s by Justin Christie. It was posted just last month, so we’re getting some fresh fan films to keep us busy while we await the next official Star Wars movies. This is a great film, all 3D animated in Cinema 4D with a great story. It’s only 4 minutes long so it’s not going to take a lot of your time to give it a quick watch, but I really enjoyed it. It’s well worth the time to watch it and I hope we see more from Justin soon. I really liked it. Hopefully, we will see more like this from him soon. When it comes to fan films, I’ve seen pretty much all of them so it’s refreshing when something really catches my attention and stands out to me. This is one…

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…

We love fan films here. If you’ve been following our site for any amount of time now, you know how much I love to write about Star Wars fan films.

Just in time for The Last Jedi, we have an original story of Rey. Want to know where she really came from? How she ended up where she is now? Here’s a fun take on Rey’s origin story that you won’t want to miss. See this video from Working with Lemons “Before there was ever a Last Jedi did you ever wondered how Rey became stuck…

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…
