So, a guy spent 4 years making a ridiculously high-quality TIE Fighter anime short in the crazy high-octane 80s sci-fi style of stuff like Macross or Gundam: Stardust Memory. It’s a reminder of just how badass the old TIE Fighter PC game was and just how badass Star Wars can be when it’s not being terrible (which is pretty often!).
Frankly, I’d be more excited if someone told me that this guy had been handed millions of dollars to make a full length animated feature film than I could ever be about the new JJ Abrams movie. Sorry, JJ, you’ve done some alright stuff, but this 7 minutes is more awesome than any of it.
The characters all have pretty extensive backstories which can be found here.
The worst Star Wars fan on the Internet, on the other hand, can be found here.
