Star Wars – Or Star Fact?

This short film was made by Corridor in the interest of taking a closer look at the lightsaber. Personally, I think they could mine this single installment and turn it into an entire series.

That, right there, is good storytelling wrapped up in five minutes of footage. You cannot see this author, but she is clapping behind the screen. Trust me, this is how writers ought to approach an idea: “Yeah, but what if…”
