2008 Fan Movie Challenge finalists ready and willing

It’s time to vote for your favorites in the Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge. The voting period is short – only until July 10 – and there are quite a few finalists… So start watching now! (Looks like the winners will be announced at San Diego Comic Con.)

I’ll be back with my recommendations later – but a quick peruse does show a few videos that we’ve featured are in the running: ESB in 60 seconds, Tarkin n’ Friends and Ryan vs. Dorkman 2.

On the TOS: Hyperspace, fan movies, events

IMAGEIt’s been a weird few weeks – here’s some of the stuff we missed on the official site.

What would you do for a Thrawn trilogy movie?

NOTICE: As of at least March 2008, the site at createstarwars.org is no longer live. Your guess is as good as mine.

CreateStarWars.org isn’t the first fan-produced attempt we’ve seen at the post-ROTJ EU, but they are quite clear on their goal: to create 3-D movies out of The Thrawn Trilogy. Period.

Sadly, I’m not entirely buying their manifesto, or at least the focus on how awful the prequels were. Look: they’re here, they’re done, lay off the whining already.

Still, I can’t say I entirely disagree with the concept as a whole. Not exactly blown away here (it’s Heir to the Empire,) but it’s a nice goal. Never say never…
