Hey gang! Here's a great fan made Star Wars film that I think you're all going to enjoy! The film is called Star Wars: A Light in the Darkness. They actually did a really good job considering they had a very low budget. It's pretty high quality work. I understand the acting may fall flat, the dialogue and script may be weak, but it's still fun to watch! There's definitely a lot of hard work and heart that went into bringing this short Star Wars film to life.
A young boy watches as the Jedi who saved his people is 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?
Check out the first part of the film below and tell us what you think! Hope you enjoy it!

Info on the Creators:
When Celebration V announced it was coming to their hometown of Orlando, FL, creators PJ Tamayo and Fed Wetherbee saw this as their catalyst. A Star Wars fan film was the perfect project to put their talents to work as well as challenge them to go beyond their comfort zone. PJ Tamayo and Fed Wetherbee met several years ago in an MMA class. After punching and kicking each other for several weeks they started talking and discovered they had similar careers and aspirations. They had been looking for a project to work on together and began working on A Light in the Darkness in early 2010. Meeting the deadline of the Atom.com Fan Movie Challenge was daunting, but they were able to finish principle photography and editing in time to release a trailer.
A Light in the Darkness’ trailer was a finalist in the 2010 Fan Movie Challenge on Atom.com.
