Here's a great little fan made Star Wars animated film created by Daniel Smith and Jeff Scheetz. The short film is called Star Wars: The Solo Adventures, and follows Han Solo and Chewbacca and the filmmakers take the opportunity to explain why Han Solo ditched Jabba the Huts precious cargo prior to Episode IV. The short won Best Animated Film at Celebration V.
Here's a description of the project:
The 3D fan film sensation of Star Wars Celebration v was "The Solo Adventures."
It is the tale of how Han Solo "Dropped his cargo at the first sign of an Imperial Cruiser." But of course there is a lot more to the story! This film was a class project by students at the DAVE School of digital Arts and Visual Effects in Orlando Fla. This version of the film is not the same as the one that appears on Atom films.com. This version is the primed and polished HD version that was shown at Star Wars Celebration V (minus the 3D conversion.) Much thanks goes to the folks over at the DAVE School for giving us the opportunity to post this amazing film!
Watch the short film, and fell free to share your thoughts in the Rant Back section below!
There's also a 3D version of the movie if you have 3D glasses!
