Trivia

Director Joe Sill explains his idea behind this (via Yahoo): "I grew up on the idea that Star Wars really was family-driven," said Sill, who makes commercials for a living, including work for Disney, Nickelodeon, and Google. "So I kind of wanted to tell a bit of that story. Parent and child are always split apart in Star Wars, so I wondered, if you're going to tell a story of essentially splitting apart and coming together, why not tell a story of a father and daughter who are together?"

Acceptable fan film
14 January 2018 | by SnootzSee all my reviews

For what this is it's acceptable. Decent acting but minimal storyline-- the fault of so many shorts. Further... this has been done before. Repeatedly.

The major flaw in this is that the sound track is so loud it almost drowns out all speech; it's difficult to tell what the characters are saying. Very poor sound editing.

Beyond that it's basically just another fight and another budding potential Jedi and we've seen this before. The summary here on IMDB tells the entire "plot" of the short... because there isn't really any plot. I give this 5 stars for good effects and acting.

We do find that Storm Troopers still can't hit the side of a Bantha from ten paces, even with automatic weaponry. At least that holds true to canon.
