Star Wars Fan Film: The Young Jedi

Star Wars Fan Film The Young Jedi

If you’re a regular reader here, you know how I love Star Wars fan films. There’s something really magical about the way a fan community can come together to create beautiful works of art like we often see in these fan films. There are different reasons why people make Star Wars fan films but the love of the franchise is one thing that connects them all. It’s also the great connector that brings all of us, the viewers, in to watch these films as well. Here’s one from back in 2018. but it’s good and worth another watch even if you did see it before. It’s under 5 minutes long so this short is not going to take up your whole day, but you’ll be really impressed by it, I’m sure. It’s a lot of fun to watch and it has great visual effects, which makes sense, as that is…

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…

BUCKETHEADS A Star Wars Story

You know we love our fan films here and we have another fun one to bring to you today. Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a Stormtrooper? What do they go through in life? What do they experience while trying to carry out their job? Now, in this new film, you can discover some answers to that. BUCKETHEADS is a Star Wars Fan Film from the Stormtroopers’ perspective. Shot in September 2017 in Vancouver, BC, Canada, it was a wonderful journey, with over 76 people directly involved in this effort to tell a Star Wars Story from the Imperial point of view. This film wouldn’t have been possible without the involvement of the 501st Legion, Vader’s fist. Learn more here: http://www.501st.com | http://www.whitearmor.net I had the very nerdy pleasure of meeting some of the 501st before and I can tell you they are amazing and they work…

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…
