Tie Fighter Short Film (Video)
This Star Wars fan film is awesome on so many levels. It’s an anime style short film that was created by one single animator. It took him over four years to do this on his own (not every day of course). There is no voices but the animation totally speaks for its self. The sound effects are great and this definitely looks like it could be something that was produced by a large studio. Honestly I’m a little surprised that this stylized version of Star Wars hasn’t been done already…
Taken from OtaKing77077 YouTube page; What if there was an Empire-focussed short Star Wars animation, drawn with the crazy detail and shading of classic 80s anime that’s all but vanished from Japan nowadays? Fans of Lucasarts’ seminal 1994 TIE Fighter game may notice a few familiar sights and sounds. That “incoming missile” noise gives me horrible flashbacks to this day. Just brilliant and honestly Tie Fighter and X-Wing were two of my favorite PC games of all time.
I love that this plays to anime and Star Wars fans alike. The story is pretty simple but honestly he has taken some of the best parts of Star Wars and gave us a small glimpse of what the Rebel Alliance had to face going up against the Empire. Let’s just say it doesn’t end well for the Rebels in this short film.
Anyway, check out the Tie Fighter Short Film and let me know what you think Nerd Nation. Would you like to see more animations like this based on the Star Wars universe? What if an entire series was animated this way? Leave me your thoughts in a comment below, on the Facebook page, and hit me up on my Twitter page.
