Kara: An Unofficial Star Wars Film

2016 | Fan film | Science Fiction | Short Film


Star Wars Kara tells a story of a veteran X-Wing pilot who helps transport a young girl with mysterious powers and her desperate father to an underground Rebel base. It's one of the first fan films inspired by Star Wars: The Force Awakens (so far) that really captures the spirit of that movie, specifically how amazing Daisy Ridley's character Rey is. In this film, Andra Nechita stars as Kara, and there's a really big reveal with her near the end that makes this even more exciting. To top it off, this has impressive technical aspects including outstanding VFX work (X-Wings, Tie Fighters galore!) and tons of futuristic action that actually feels real.

Star Wars Kara (2015) Review:

Star Wars KARA is the extremely impressive, unofficial fan film set in the Star Wars universe. The vision, style, and technical proficiency on display in KARA has convinced me Joe Sill is a young talent who will leave an indelible mark on filmmaking. With KARA, writer and director Joe Sill has produced a short that looks as if it could be a deleted scene from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Sill has paid remarkable attention to detail in terms of mimicking the production design, tone, and style of the iconic sci-fi films. But what makes this short truly an achievement is within its seven minute runtime, you are introduced to the three protagonists and become fully invested in their plight.

Cast and Crew:

Director: Joe Sill
