The Empire Is Totally Metal in This Anime-Style Star Wars “TIE Fighter” Short



I’m a little slower to the party than normal due to a weekend that included a ride on a massive Ferris wheel with an open bar inside each pod. But speaking of enclosed spheres that give you a spinning sensation, this short about TIE fighter pilots scored to guitar rock is what I imagine Imperial propaganda to be like. Not only is the music way better than anything Star Wars characters actually listen to, but the spaceships actually manage to hit Rebel targets more often than not.

it took four years to complete, and is worth seven minutes of your time.
