Awesome short film shows Star Wars from the Empire's perspective

Watch this. Now. TIE Fighter is a short animation by Paul Johnson that shows a bit of Star Wars from the perspective of the Empire. It's done in the style of anime from the 80's and shows an aerial fight scene between TIE fighters and X-wings and is pretty much so awesome that Disney should make this an entire movie.

Wait... Why were the imperials the bad guys? They were fighting a group of religious zealots who were led by a religion, and not by logic. They manipulated other worlds into doing there bidding (Ewoks) and couldn't run a government worth a dam. I put forth the idea the Rebels were the ISIS of the day. Oh yeh, a Peaceful benevolent group of people dont allow furry animals to play the drums on the helmets of the enemys dead.. If it was only just the Helmet..

Long live the Empire!
