Now that it looks like the proposed live action Star Wars TV show is on hold, something about an intergalactic TV series with spaceships and aliens and lasers being too expensive to produce, I know! right?, maybe it’s time for the fans to come up with something. Well this group of fans did back in 2008 and produced Sandrima Rising. Sure the acting is bad but some of the effects are decent and really, is this worse than any SyFy original movie? No, I don’t think so.
The vibe I get from watching this is Serenity set in the Star Wars universe, which intrigues the hell out of me. Instead of going wide scope, perhaps Lucas needs to narrow things down and go for a more personal approach. Heck, if he wanted to go dark, how about following the exploits of a team of Jedi hunters? I’d watch that!
