Check out this amazing Star Wars fan film, that shows life under the rule of the Empire. This three-part story may have a bit of shoestring-budget cheesiness, but we still think the basic story is pretty excellent. Fingers crossed, this is the kind of stuff we'll see from the mysterious Star Wars television series (if that ever gets filmed).
Officially titled Star Wars: A Light in the Darkness, this flick was created by PJ Tamayo and Fed Wetherbee. Here's the official run down.
A Light in the Darkness' main action takes place approx. 1 year BBY on a small planet in the Outer Rim. A young boy watches the Jedi who saved his people be killed by the very clones who once fought by his side. Years later, as a member of a small insurgency against the empire he and his team hatch a new plan to take back their planet by drawing the attention of the newly formed rebel alliance.
Armed with the fallen Jedi's light saber, he and his team battle to strike fear into the local imperial garrison, and overthrow their despotic governor. Their silent attacks give birth to a legend, and the people speak of a phantom Jedi whose spirit has returned.
As the story spreads they manage to draw attention to their forgotten corner of the galaxy, but who will arrive first, the rebel alliance or the empire?
