SKYWALKER’S APPRENTICE (2019 Star Wars Fan Film)

'S APPRENTICE (2019 Star Wars Fan Film)

Ah, time for another fan film. You know how much I love these! We are getting some new Star Wars fan films in 2019 and some of them are pretty awesome. Here’s one that is truly a work of art. It’s a great story (Starwalker lives on!) and it’s really well done. Nice acting and effects, music and everything. All the elements that make for a good film are here. So, what’s it about? In the wake of the destruction of Starkiller Base, a young Jedi Knight, one of the few surviving pupils of Master Luke Skywalker, gathers his own Padawans for a learning lesson in the ways of the Force.

Star Wars Fan Film “Shrouded Destiny”

Star Wars Fan Film - Shrouded Destiny

Here’s the start of a very interesting fan film. Shahbaz Sarwar was born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark and has been working on a film draft for 2 1/2 years. This is a test shot of that script in action. I really don’t want to ruin it by telling you much more about the film/story itself. You just need to watch it. It’s just over 6 minutes, so it’s not going to take up a lot of your time, but I think you’ll be glad you watched. It had me both rolling with laughter and screaming at my screen. It’s good. Very good. I’m going to let you see for yourself, but allow me to tell you a bit about the creator and the project itself. This is what Sarwar has to say about it: “Like many people, “The Force Awakens” really got a lot of people back into Star…

ODYSSEY: A Star Wars Story – Fan Film

ODYSSEY A Star Wars Story (2018 Fan Film)

Odyssey has been a project in the works for over two years! It was a labor of love, talent, and hard work for sure. They have done a truly amazing job with this one. Honestly, it’s so above caliber that I almost don’t want to call it a “fan film” (and you guys know how much I love my fan films). Ever wondered what it would be like to see stormtroopers in a film like Saving Private Ryan? Well, this fan film is as close as you can get. This film is set in the Star Wars universe and it’s all about a war, and follows the life of a young rebel named Quinn on his first mission with the Odyssey Squadron. It has dramatic and uplifting music, great costumes (Rebel and Imperial uniforms that look professionally-made), great stories, and realistic acting. It ticks all the boxes for a really…

Star Wars – Battle of Sullust – Fan-Film

Star Wars - Battle of Sullust - Fan-Film

Ah, fan films… one thing that brings the Star Wars community leap years ahead of other fanatics. We love our Star Wars stories, games, and lore. And it shows in the sheer amount of fan films that are out there, along with the production quality and the time that gets put into making them. In Battle of Sullust, we get to experience an awesome fan film with great CGI, music, story and backdrops. It definitely feels like a fan film, but this isn’t a bad thing, since if you’ve been a regular here, you know I love them. This story takes place moments before the events in Star Wars The Clone Wars: Nightsisters. Anakin Skywalker joins in the battle for Sullust against the Separatists, offering help to the soldiers of the 144th Legion after they were stranded on the battlefield after the death of their general. This battle is important…

The Samurai Mandalorian – A Star Wars Fan-Film

Here we go with another awesome Star Wars fan film. This one has a samurai so I was intrigued from the start. It’s short, has live actors, great costumes, and an interesting story. It clocks in under four minutes long so you’re not going to need to block out a lot of your day to give it a quick watch. It has great music, too, and they are in the very, very beautiful castle Schauenburg in Dossenheim, Germany. I would personally love to be able to see this castle and location for myself. There’s an epic lightsaber battle, some beautiful shots of the sun setting and the scenery, mixed in with a great Samurai story as well. So go ahead and give it a few minutes and watch for yourself. Be sure to leave them a comment if you really liked it and maybe they’ll get around to making more for…

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…

Karl Hewitt Paints Amazing Death Star Mural Over 20 Hours (and Records It)

Karl Hewitt painted a Death Star mural for a huge Star Wars fan, and recorded the whole thing (posted in time lapse) for us to see. It’s really, really awesome. The 31-year-old mural artist from Clywd, UK, got what must be one of the coolest jobs ever – to paint a giant Death Star mural. His business, Noo Design Murals, has been at it for about four years. It’s a whole different ballgame from his previous job as a forklift driver. While he’s new to the painting business, his natural talent clearly shines through in his amazing work, and I suspect it will only get better and better with time. Here are some photos of the Star Wars mural from his Facebook page. Hewitt markets his business from Facebook, and you can see more examples of his work there on his page. He does a lot of awesome stuff for kids, a football mural for…

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…

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…
