Star Wars Origins: Revan Fan Film
Star Wars Origins: Revan is the most ambitious fan film ever produced. We have detailed plans for a full size cantina set to be built.
Star Wars Origins: Revan is an ambitious fan film that recounts when the Jedi first discover the young Revan. The location is a smokey cantina Carra Nisu (much like Mos Eisley) where smugglers, traders, and other seedy characters hang out.
Our story begins with the young Revan (as a kid) sneaking past security into Carra Nisu. He makes hIs way to the trading room in the back of the cantina where a small, mousy alien Whetor has brought a mysterious object to sell or trade. He is met by the no-nonsense Mandalorian, Belok, who takes advantage of him in a deal that allows the Mandalorian to secure the object for far less than its obvious value. Others see the coveted item and that’s when the scene turns violent.
Everyone is drawn into the battle for the item, including Revan and a Jedi who reveals herself. The fighting spills out into the main cantina area with more patrons losing their lives.
Centuries later the older Revan returns to the now rundown cantina with Republic soldiers. After battling and killing several patrons and Darth Malak followers, Revan encounters an old friend he must now defeat in an epic lightsaber battle to the death.
Our goal is the recreate the Lucasfilm look and tone to the tee. That includes set design, costuming, special fx, fight choreography, storyline, and more. What you see here are 3D renders of the live action set we are building inside a warehouse in Dallas, TX.
ALL funds raised here will go directly to building the cantina, makeup and special fx, props, cast and crew, and food. Can't forget to feed everyone. This isn't Mother Russia!
STRETCH GOAL #1 - $100,000: Star Wars Origins: Revan becomes a 30 minute movie with at least two more locations and more lightsaber action. New scenes include Revan's early training and relationship with Alek.
STRETCH GOAL #2 - $125,000: Star Wars Origins: Revan becomes a 40 minute film. We build a portion of the Jedi temple as a set. (other portions of the Jedi Temple will be CGI). New scenes include Revan's conflict with the Jedi Council over the Mandalorian threat.
There is no limit to what our skilled team can do with your help!
Risks and challenges
We are building a full size cantina inside a warehouse. No other fan film has tried this. We have two professional set builders as part of our team that will manage the construction process.
We also have some advanced stunts, digital and special fx. Our stunt team includes a stunt double of an A list actor. Our special fx and digital fx team have worked on several profile movies.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
