Good old Star Wars atmosphere and a fan film that feels like it's far more than that
31 December 2019 | by kovacevicmatijaSee all my reviews

The plot is engaging and managed to raise the stakes in a short time, the act is brilliant, fighting very realistic, cinematography and Tatooine scenery absolutely beautiful, costumes and props entirely believable, and the soundtrack (recorded by Budapest Scoring Orchestra) astonishing! Also, captain Leegus has a nice Krennic edge to him (played by James A. Taylor - the voice of Obi-Wan in TCW!). My only objection is the sound of an approaching Imperial vehicle seen through macrobinoculars, which should have been much quieter and distant-sounding. Otherwise, everything was executed nearly perfectly.

Satterlund's Kenobi has set a seriously high bar for any future fan film, as this looks, sounds and feels like far more. Most importantly, this is how Star Wars is done. Hopefully, we'll see more of it.
