ODYSSEY: A STAR WARS STORY Is a Cool Fan Film Set During the Events of ROGUE ONE
If you’ve got a hankering for a new Star Wars fan film to watch, I’ve got a good one here for you today called Odyssey: A Star Wars Story.
The movie is set during the events of the Rogue One and tells the story of a the first mission of the Odyssey Squadron and how the rebel recon mission goes horribly wrong. It’s described as a “gritty and intense struggle that rebel squads faced in the years before the Death Star.”
Here’s the synopsis:
When Quinn makes a decision to ignore his orders of not intervening in civilian affairs, the situation goes from bad to worse. The small six man reconnaissance squad must fight for their lives and beliefs as both are threatened in an all out battle with Imperial Forces.”
This short film showcases “the conflicts and struggles that are universal to any war story. It is a matter of what you want to fight for, and what you are willing to risk for the cause. Instead of rebel soldiers being dispensable characters on the screen, we want you to care when these men and women are at risk. We want to show you the humanity and fear in the fight against the empire. This film will be a Star Wars story like no other.”
This project was funded by Kickstarter and was made with the help of 120 cast and crew members. They all did a great job developing this film and delivered a fan film that Star Wars fans are sure to enjoy.
