For director Eric Demeusy, who was kind enough to forward over the trailer for his project Star Wars: The New Republic Anthology this morning, this feels less like a trailer for a Star Wars fan film and more like an audition tape to take over the somewhat defunct production of a Boba Fett anthology film. A project recently vacated by Fantastic Four director Josh Trank.
It’s hard to say that something like that would even work, but we do know that Hollywood is always watching. We also know that Demeusy’s trailer is pretty spectacular. It has a quality that is leaps and bounds above most fan-made stuff.
See for yourself above. Here’s the official synopsis for Demeusy’s Boba Fett film:
“After being trapped for 30 years in the Great Pit of Carkoon, infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett makes a death defying escape and finds himself fighting alongside the Rebellion to establish a New Republic.”
