Ralph McQuarrie’s original concept art for Star Wars still influences the designs and creatures we see in the films, in comics, and on TV today. His legacy in the shaping of the saga’s visual identity is unquestionable. But his work also paints a picture of a Star Wars we never got to see—one this fan film…
Many live-action anime adaptations are objectively terrible, but Robot Underdog’s Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope manages to set itself apart. Not with incredibly high production values or brilliant fight sequences, but with an earnest love and respect for the series that it’s based on.
If your problem with the Star Wars prequels was that they took themselves too seriously, then you’re in luck. One Star Wars fan has released a full-length, homemade recreation of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, and it’s absolutely absurd.
Ask people what they most remember about Steven Spielberg’s Hook, and the answer is bound to be Rufio. The character, played by Dante Basco, was the leader of the Lost Boys before Peter Pan returned to Neverland, and ultimately, he’s killed by Captain Hook.
As George R.R. Martin and HBO try to figure out which (and how many!) of the five Game of Thrones spin-offs they’re working on a small group of indie filmmaker in Belfast have taken it upon themselves to make their own prequel, titled “The Wild Wolf,” a short depicting Ned’s doomed brother Brandon Stark and Catelyn…
For decades, Star Wars has been treated as a series for boys—but ever since 1977, girls and women all over the world have loved the saga too. A new documentary plans to speak to those female fans to see what inspired their relationship with the galaxy far, far, away, and the heartwarming trailer is worth a watch.
Not only is this fan-made short series really well edited and put together, it’s got an art style quite unlike anything you’ve seen before from the grim dark future of Warhammer 40,000's setting.
Iron Man’s replacement in Marvel’s current comics, Riri Williams, was an MIT student before she started flying high as the Invincible Ironheart. So it’s pretty damn awesome that a group of her real-life alumni have made their own fan film about the young hero and her life at the university.
As played by the late Heath Ledger in Batman: The Dark Knight, and Jared Leto in Suicide Squad, the latest recent live-action versions of the Joker have been among the most debated iterations of the character. A new fan-produced short has them fighting each other.
Even fan films get lavish trailers these days—but this trailer for Slice of Life, set within the world of Blade Runner, is almost lavish enough to make us think it was coming straight from Blade Runner 2049.
There’s a lot of war in Star Wars, as its name implies. But while lightsabers swinging and blaster fire screaming down hallways is a lot of fun to watch, what if the Rebels and Empire resolved their conflicts more peacefully instead? like, say, a game of Force-chess?
We heard yesterday that we might have to wait a little longer to see the young Han Solo Star Wars Story movie. While you’re waiting, why not check out this nifty fan film that gives a little taste of just how fun a pre-A New Hope Han Solo film could be?
Age of Ultron’s heavily touted Hulk vs. Hulkbuster fight was rather spectacular—and while this fan film might not have been made with the splashy budget of a Hollywood action movie, it certainly matches AoU in the beatdown department.
If you can watch this and not desperately wish that there was an Indiana Jones cartoon to accompany it, then you are a stronger person than I.
Stormtroopers are helmeted for a reason—not being able to see their faces makes us feel okay about our heroes mowing down tons of them as they go about saving the day. This short but sharp fan film puts the focus on the people behind the masks, and in the process, makes you feel a little sympathetic about the endless…
What happens when you go from being one of the most prominent Jedi masters in the galaxy to an old man hiding out in the desert? Well, for one thing, your hair gets really long.
Life as a Stormtrooper is miserable. You’re a faceless cog in a giant machine (that also happens to be a rather evil machine), you shoot at some rebels, probably miss, and then probably die. But this brilliant fan film digs a little deeper into the life of one Stormtrooper to examine the trauma of fighting in a…
Good news: Paramount and CBS’ have created a way to ensure a fan film won’t get sued. Bad news: The way they’ve done that is by issuing some seriously confusing and oppressive rules about what fans can and can’t do.
Camera-mounted drones can be used for all sorts of wonderful videos. But I’m pretty sure the most wonderful use is to create own X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter dogfight videos—because man, this is one brilliant idea.
