TIE Fighter

I hesitate to post this here because in general I don’t endorse my generation’s excessive devotion to the Star Wars franchise. I enjoy the original films and characters, but the nearly religious devotion that they inspire in others is lost on me. That said, this short tribute to Star Wars from animator Paul “OtaKing” Johnson is a stunning piece of work. It imagines a Star Wars film in the mold of 1980s-style Japanese anime works like the Macross series, and its interpretation is pitch perfect.
