Holy heck, this fan-made anime Star Wars film is absolutely amazing

This concept animation has no sound yet, but that in no way detracts from the fact that this Star Wars short by YouTuber Otaking77077 is empirically huge. Watch as the Imperials and Rebels engage in some furious and frenetic dogfighting. Seriously, someone at Lucasfilm needs to sign off on this pronto. It will give you flashbacks to the enjoyable Star Wars manga from so many years ago. I uttered an audible "Boy howdy!" when we see those AT-ATs chilling out in Star Destroyers — can't wait to see where this project goes. Huge hat tip to Alexander!

UPDATE 7/16: The original was nixed for some reason, but here's a version remixed with Sleigh Bells.

It just boggles my mind that so many people that are not George Lucas seem to understand the SW universe and what the fans want to see in it better than the creator of that universe.

A) hardly missed the sound, would be awesome with it, but it was such a great piece of work it was still awesome beyond awesome. Besides I know what those lasers and ships sound like. That being said, I can't wait to see it with sound.

B) Does this guy need a kickstarter or something? Cause I'd chip in to see this finished. I'm sure there's Lucas rules about making money but he obviously needs money to do it, I know he can't 'sell' it but maybe he could get a project funded? Just a thought.

C) Or maybe he could sell it. This needs to be a series, on CN or somewhere, it could replace the Clone Wars for all I care. I think CW is nice but this is...better. WAY better.

I'm actually upset that I can't see more of this. I trust io9 will keep us updated!
