Earlier this month, we spotlighted a great ‘Star Wars’ fan film from Australia called ‘Star Wars: Down Under’. Now, an old favorite fan film series is looking to make a comeback, but they’re asking for the help of their fans.
Way back in 2007, Rivera Film came together to release ‘Dark Resurrection: Volume 1’, which followed a dark Jedi’s path to uncover a mythical source of power. Later, in 2011, they released a prequel called ‘Dark Resurrection: Volume 0’. Now, they’re gearing up to complete the trilogy with the final chapter of the story, ‘Dark Resurrection: Volume 2’. However, the filmmakers are looking to their fans to help make this last installment the best one yet. You can check out their plea for help in the trailer below:
It’ll be interesting to see if Disney will actually allow them to continue with their film. Previously, director Mike Pecci attempted to create ‘The Dead Can’t Be Distracted’, a film based on Greg Rucka and Marco Checchetto’s run on ‘Punisher’. However, Marvel, which is now owned by the House of Mouse, presented them with a cease and desist letter citing trademark violation as the reason. Since Disney owns Lucasfilm as well and are putting a heavy emphasis on ‘Star Wars’, especially with J.J. Abrams’ upcoming film in the pipeline, one has to wonder if Rivera Films has a letter coming their way too.
If you’re interested in the ‘Dark Resurrection’ series so far, you can check out both movies in full right here:
