Monday Fan Films

March 29, 2011

All this talk of fan films yesterday made me think that Monday is a perfect day for drudging the sarlacc pit out back, and for posting over seven different, classic Star Wars fan films.  Some of them are longer than the average YouTube series, while others are short and funny soda commercials.  They’re also in order of less favorite to most favorite, and consequently time of release as well (maybe).

To start off the line up is the classic, original Star Wars fan film Hardware Wars, made before computer editing existed and people still shot movies on actual film.  Sure it shows a little bit, and the humor is obviously 70’s, but cut it a little slack, there are some gems amidst the thumb twiddling.

The Star Wars Kid

I think it’s important to remember the originators of a movement.  For one lucky kid in Canada, the movement was internet fan films, and though we may never know his true identity, we will remember him fondly as The Star Wars Kid.

And all of his remixes…
