Writer and director Benjamin Eck has just released one of, if not the best Star Wars short film we've ever seen! The extremely compelling fan film, titled 'Jakku: First Wave' tells part of the story behind the Battle of Jakku, which took place right after the events of Return of the Jedi and is also where we found Daisy Ridley's Rey in The Force Awakens. The new film humanizes the Stormtroopers in a way that has only been hinted at in the films and really gives a lot of emotional depth to the troopers.
Check out the incredible fan film below and sound off in the comments section with your thoughts. Did you love this Star Wars short as much as we did? If so lets talk about it. Also would you like to see an actual Star Wars film from this angle? As always, thanks for stopping by your favorite place for cool Star Wars stuff, EastCoastMovieGuys!
Cast: Joseph Bearor, Aaron Goddard, and Tyler Wolfe
