First animated short by amateur 3d film maker Ken Dunn offers an explanation of how the Empire tracked down those rebels with the stolen plans. All original models, sets, animation, and score make this a one man show taking place in the much [over] emulated STAR WARS universe. Many of the sets from the opening scenes of episode IV are reproduced in loving detail here in "Droid Rage" making it a worthy addition to a fan tradition.
This entry into the annual Lucas Arts Fan Film Competition won the coveted "Fan Film of the Year" award back in 2002...
Set just a few years before The Phantom Menace, the story follows the appointment of a new apprentice to Emperor Palpatine.
