About "Jakku: First Wave"
"Jakku: First Wave" puts the "War" in Star Wars in this short fan film that marries the likes of Saving Private Ryan with the Star Wars universe we all know and love.
The film takes place in the rear of an Imperial Walker moments before the doors open onto the battle of Jakku. The story centers around three Stormtroopers, cramped, sweaty and nervous before battle. The script and dialog are inspired by real life stories from US soldiers. The goal of “Jakku: First Wave” is to pull the curtain back a little on one of Star Wars’ most beloved but mysterious groups of characters.
