Star Wars With The Heart of an 80s Anime

In Film, Video

Good evening friends,

I recently watched an excellent short Star Wars film, TIE Fighter, and I felt it’d be a crime not to share it with you. No, it is not a J.J. Abrams joint or a fan made live action movie, but an imaginative take on a space battle between the Imperial Army and the Rebel Alliance in the style of a 1980s anime made as a labor of love. Think Ghost in the Shell or Akira. I’ve never really thought about giving Star Wars the anime treatment, especially from this era, but now I wish there was an entire TV series or film using this style. Thank you to Paul Johnson for creating this labor of love. Watch it for yourself below.

Enjoy,

– MK
