Anakin Skywalker is DEAD.
For eight months, the mysterious Darth Vader has enforced the Emperor's commands. Fighting between the loss of Padme, and the new cursed life he now leads, Vader must do what must be done when a surviving Jedi Master from Order 66 has lured him to the home planet of his late Wife's tomb...

This project is single handedly the most amazing thing I've ever been part of. Without Danny Ramirez's guidance and help, this never would have taken off the ground, let alone...gotten to where it is today. I owe him a lot. He is da coooolest. I thank every single one of you for watching my videos and supporting my channel. I will do my best to excel your expectations for years to come and provide entertainment you deserve. I thank you for everything, and I hope to one day make episode 2 a reality. In the mean time, all I ask, is for you to share this video, and hit like to spread to word. I couldn't have done this without the talented people behind it. You know who you are (that long credits list). I love you all. And to the fans, meeting hundreds of you at the free premiere in LA was surreal. I will post everything soon from the event. You've changed my life forever, and I hope to bring you this first episode (and many more I hope!) as a gratitude and gift for what you deserve. I am eternally grateful.

      Star Wars Theory thank you! I have always wanted to Vader beat emperor in "fair fight". This is also so accurate, Vader never gets a break but also it was emperor who pushed him too far so his journey to light side began(according to vader comics 2020). Even Vader thought to turn Luke to accomplish this but between lines it was emperors pushing him over the limit and betray him. I dont like the new star wars movies and emperor returning, total bullshit those latest 3 movies.

    Amazing. Thank you. SW can be saved still. I'm returning to a boycott of Disney, looks like we don't need them anymore. Kill off Han, kill off Luke, Disney is absolute evil. Are there that many feminist SW fans out there to warrant destroying all that came before to patch together a weak woke franken-sequel? Unwatchable. I'm worse off by seeing them. Depressing. I turned out for every sequel just to get a fresh kick in the junk every single time. I slept during 9. Almost as bad as releasing Incredibles 2 on father's day weekend on purpose just to try to grind us father's into the ground. I paid $ for that as well to watch every line of dialogue humiliate and berate the Dad in that film. No good reason to dish out that much venom Disney. You have issues. Fix this mess and I may be back. Rant done, thanks for this!

    When Vader picks up the medallion he provided to Padme in his youth...... when you hear the first "Anakin" delivered from the actress, and Vaders response of "Padme".. I get the sensation of Frisson every-time...... goosebumps, full body fluctuation of a "thrill" passes through the system.... This is what "ART" is supposed to do... Move people and stimulate them. Star Wars theory, You have done the most miraculous job in not only providing a safe space for star wars nerds like myself... But you have now officially added to the lore that is star wars. Thank you so much for your contributions, intelligence and sheer determination to be a part of the star wars universe. You are worthy of emulation from others. I would be honored to be half the man you are! Thank you, From Canada

    "Did you ever hear the tragedy of Star Wars Theory The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story Hollywood would tell you. It’s a fan legend. Star Wars Theory was a Dark Lord of the Fanon, so powerful and so wise he could use the Fanfiction to influence the minds to create life… He had such a knowledge of the fanfiction that he could even keep the franchises he cared about from dying. The fanfiction is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he could be afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, Hollywood killed him . Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself."

  • Zod Jenkins
    Zod Jenkins

    The way you deconstructed Anakins inner hopelessness to the final moment, drawing his lightsaber like some mindless yet searching hulk was absolutely awesome; The scriptwriting to disseminate our simple thoughts against the weight of his suffering was a bit complex, but the way it choked the audience was incredibly stylish and grabbing for a first piece, if only it could be longer!! You clearly know your stuff and make that clear, I seriously hope you end up somewhere working on Star Wars plots because you have a proper consideration for the classic pieces and the extended lore wound together. My only criticism is to just bring back the dramatic sequencing similar to the original works, maybe your intention was to create a chaotic environment but I think with a lot of pieces from the 70s they leave a bit of time for the spacial relationships and the semantics to bake in on film... As someone who is a fan of works in english, 10/10 writing team and I hope you get the funding these deserve; you captured a point of nihilism so far beyond average conception using familiar characters and that is really something.

  • Backstage Pass
    Backstage Pass

    I sincerely don't understand the comments fellating this "film." This is the biggest POS I've ever laid eyes on. The acting is awful. The costume designs are laughable. There's no cohesive story - just a lot of BUZZ BUZZ LAZER SWORD GO BOOM and Trump-style fantasies involving killing everything and everyone. Disney and Lucasfilm didn't copyright strike it because it was a threat. They copyright struck it because it used intellectual property that it doesn't own to create a film that's a bad parody of everything Star Wars stands for. George Lucas HIMSELF said that the story of Star Wars wasn't about murder and brutality - something that caused this man-baby to go silent when he was called out on it - although now I see why Theory and the rest of the Fandom Menace screams about "virtue signaling" whenever someone gets hired at Lucasfilm or puts out a Star Wars film: because, at the end of the day, HE believes that HE should have been hired so he could live out his Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader self-insert fantasy. When THAT didn't happen, he began lashing out at everything and everyone - including Brie Larson, for some reason, all because she said "I want to be in Star Wars" - and now, it's just become a habit. He's a hateful, disgusting little troll who has self-insert fantasies that he's FAR too old for, a disturbing and quasi-homicidal hatred of women (especially good looking women), and a "career" that involves sitting on BGfix all day spitting his spleen at perceived injustices that don't exist IN A FICTIONAL UNIVERSE THAT IS NOT REAL LIFE.
