Star Wars Fan Film Secret of Tatooine
We’ve come across another awesome Star Wars fan film by YouTuber Jordan Inconstant who contacted us on Twitter. This Star Wars Fan Film Secret of Tatooine sees Obiwan Kenobi exiled on Tatooine to watch over the young Luke Skywalker. This short film takes place between episodes 3 and 4. His mission will be over-complicated when the young Luke leaves alone in the desert in pursuit of the Tuskens. In saving him, Obi-Wan stirred the curiosity of a bounty hunter and troops of the empire. Will the Jedi succeed in preserving his identity AND returning to exile whilst protecting Luke?
Star Wars Fan Film Secret of Tatooine is in French with subtitles. If you read some of the comments on YouTube a few are moaning its not in English. However, we did not mind that it was in French, the sub-titles are very good. If we are honest you hardly notice that its in French as the storyline is gripping and has necessary tension to keep you gripped.
We see Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke SkyWalker, Tusken Raiders, StormTroopers and Darth Vader himself. The Bounty Hunter mentioned above is a character called Kalaya. We dont recall Kalaya from the movies so we are guessing hes a new creation. He’s cool though and comes across as sinister and nasty. For a fan made film, its really high quality in terms of acting, effect and set design and fits in nicely between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.
The movie has got a nice balance between dialogue and action with both the Force and lightsabre getting some screen time. If there is any gripe, some more dueling would have been sweet. You are never quite convinced that Obi-Wan is actually going to lose. Kenobi is brooding and moody and looks like he has the weight of the world on his shoulders. Little does he know what awaits him in Episode 4 😉
