Star Wars fans are something special and any time a new Star Wars fan film pops up you can bet fans will be all over it. We have covered Star Wars fan films in the past and this new Star Wars fan film is from an experienced group of Star Wars fan filmmakers.
Jadon Gauthier and Jamie Costa are the producers of KENOBI. The two also produced A Smuggler’s Trade, which we covered before. Gauthier is joined by a talented group of individuals who are trying to make yet another mini-story to add to the Star Wars fan film catalog. Here is the synopsis of KENOBI:
Updated December 28, 2019: The filmmakers have finally released this movie, check it out below:
After the rise of the Galactic Empire, the Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi vanished.
Now, on the desert planet Tatooine, an aging warrior who goes by the name of “Ben” stands silent watch over a special child who holds the fate of the galaxy. But Ben is consumed with doubts and guilt — he failed the Republic, the Jedi Order, and his dearest friend. As he dwindles away, questioning his purpose alone in the desert, he will be tested as his very presence draws threats both known and unknown towards the Skywalker boy.KENOBI
Hello there… We are passionate filmmakers who absolutely LOVE Star Wars. And one of the best ways we know how to express our passion is through fan films like we did with Han Solo: A Smuggler’s Trade (2.4million views!). Much of Star Wars revolves around the Skywalker saga and one of our favorite Jedi: Obi-Wan Kenobi! For a long time now many have wanted to see what Kenobi was up to on Tatooine following the events of Episode III… so we have pulled together to propose a gripping new chapter!KENOBI crew
