A few months ago, we posted an awesome sci-fi short film, called R'ha. Well, Star Wars producer Rick McCallum is going to develop the project as a feature film. It will be his first sci-fi film project since working with George Lucas. Star Wars: Clone Wars producer Steve Tzirlin will produce the film with him.
I loved the short, and it should make for a great movie. The story follows a nonhuman alien from a race called the R’Ha, who defend a cluster of solar systems from a menacing attack.
The director of the short, Kaleb Lechowski, will also direct the film from a script written by Matthew Graham, who worked on the series Life on Mars, as well as the live-action Star Wars that will never happen. McCullum revealed in a statement what attracted him to the project saying,
What inspires me and our team is that there are no humans whatsoever in the film, and yet Kaleb has come up with a world that is so engaging and so alive and so real that it really is very different from anything else I have seen in the sci-fi world.
In case you missed the short, or you want a reminder of what it is, you can check it out below.
