  • VADER EPISODE 1: SHARDS OF THE PAST - Star Wars Theory FanFilm
    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.

    I like Palpatine's rant on Vader. Vader would truly like to dispose of him, yet, he has no path to follow. Basically, all he has left are his master and his "teachings". Relatable to many real life situations we live and despise, yet at the moment nothing better seems to be at hand.

    A dark, lit cargo bay on a transport housing a primitive-looking dilapidated bacta tank. we see from the view inside the tank, exposing a shadowy figure leaning against a structure beam across from it. The figure steps out approaching the tank, we can see the linings of a body floating in the murky blue water, as the figure approaches the tank forwardly and places his open hand against it. The dark figure speaks mumbled and soft, At last, I never could have imagined how satisfying it would be, to have you at my very whim and control your Destiny as you once controlled mine. The open hand closes into a fist almost trembling, then lifting back and knocking aggressively against the glass. The man inside the tank awakens and sees a face he recognizes instantly, albeit much younger than he's ever seen it before, his body immobilize can only view the room from a single eye, he feels great pain although he knows that the wounds on his face are healing. your finally awake,... JEDI!... glad to see you survived, it will make my vengeance righteous and befitting of my kind. THE view of the body in the tank clears and we see a truly disfigured Mace Windu. The left side of his face although healing, it's severely scorched and in this sub-par bacta tank the wounds are not pretty, His eye basically a burned-out Hole were an eye used to be present. off at a table a mechanical Device is being assembled by a pair of medical droids. The shadowed figure says into the glass this Device will sustain your severe damage and connect to your nervous system it will present an image into the mind and act as a mechanical replacement, I assure you though, its installation will cause you extreme discomfort and pain. I will need you in jedi fit form within reason, for My greatest hunt, THE Jedi Master barely conscious reaches out with the force and feels what his mind had already fathomed, This is Bobba Fett, son of Jango Fett, the Bounty Hunter He had beheaded on Geonosis. As he senses this, He feels the Dark side and his mind flashes thru his last memory's.

    If I have one critique, Palpatine wouldn’t have been so desperate for Vader to strike him down. It almost seems here that he wants Vader to take over from him, but we know that in both Legends and Canon, Palpatine never intended to die and pass on the mantle of Sith Master. He intended to live forever

    I know it was part of a dream, but blast it, Palpatine! Anakin needed that hug from Padme & you just had to spoil it for him!
