Hilarious and well done! This is the all time greatest Star Wars fan film. Even George Lucas loves this one.

2. By George (2012)

A man is being driven insane by the idea that his neighbor is Star Wars creator George Lucas.

Directors: Kevin MacDonald, Ron Sparks | Stars: Ron Sparks, Scott McCrickard, Jamie Tarantini, Kevin MacDonald

Possibly even more funny than Troops but the Star Wars characters and acting are lacking. Great portrayal of George Lucas, or is it George Lucas at all?

Ryan Wieber and Micheal "Dorkman" Scott return to try and prove who is better at the light saber. The pair battle again and once more the pair appear equal. They fight each other through ... See full synopsis »

Incredibly well done with great effects and choreography! But what do you expect from two former Lucas effects employees?

4. Hardware Wars (1978)

This is a short parody of the movie Star Wars.

Director: Ernie Fosselius | Stars: Frank Robertson, Scott Mathews, Jeff Hale, Artie Deco

Maybe the first and still one of the best. It's obviously a bit dated but it's still quite entertaining.

5. George Lucas in Love (1999)

Votes: 3,707

Another short more about George Lucas than Star Wars, but it's another very well done short. Kudos to the team that made it!

It's good if you can get your hands on it :)

I think this might also be called "Your Lightsabre and You", or am I mistaken?

8. Ryan vs. Dorkman (2003 Video)

5 min | Short, Action, Sci-Fi

What began as a friendly rivalry between two effects artists explodes off TheForce.Net's FanFilms Forum and into the real world in a lightsaber battle royale. Originally created for the ... See full summary »

Directors: Michael Scott, Ryan Wieber | Stars: Michael Scott, Ryan Wieber

Votes: 165

The original Ryan vs. Dorkman - not as great as their follow-up but still awesome!

This was a very, very funny idea and this original YouTube video cult hit still holds up.

10. Dark Resurrection (2007 Video)

61 min | Sci-Fi

An ancient prophecy convinces the powerful Master Sorran to commence an obsessive search for Eron, a mythical place capable of giving the Chosen One infinite knowledge. For the sake of his ... See full summary »

Votes: 301

A huge amount of work obviously went into this. Fantastic effects and ambitious, but the acting and writing leave a bit to be desired.

11. Star Wars: Wrath of the Mandalorian (2008 Video)

12 min | Short, Action, Sci-Fi

Years after the Clone Wars end, Darth Vader sends bounty hunter Boba Fett to Kashyyyk to track down the last of the Jedi. Fett, motivated by revenge for his father's death, proves effective - but he soon finds out a terrible truth about Vader while on the hunt that gives him a change of heart.

Worth seeing!

12. Pink Five (2002 Video)

5 min | Comedy, Short, Sci-Fi

A previously unknown chapter in the Star Wars saga.

Director: Trey Stokes | Star: Amy Earhart

Votes: 238

Was never a huge fan of Pink Five but this original is worth seeing at least to experience a fan film that is different from the others. A different sense of humor.

13. Star Wars: Revelations (2005 Video)

PG | 47 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

The last Jedi fight to survive when they are hunted by the Empire. Taking place between Episodes III and Episode IV.

Director: Shane Felux | Stars: Gina Hernandez, Karen Hammang, Holland Gedney, Frank Hernandez

Votes: 1,117

Kind of collapses under its own weight. Another example of a lot of work going into effects and visuals while the acting and writing are somewhat lacking. Still good and fun though!

14. The Jedi Hunter (2002)

9 min | Adventure, Comedy, Sci-Fi

The Jedi Hunter is a parody of both the Star Wars universe and the TV show The Crocodile Hunter starring Steve Irwin. Join the now-Australian Boba Fett as he canvasses the galaxy, hunting ... See full summary »

Director: John E. Hudgens | Stars: Sandy Clark, John E. Hudgens, Robert E. Bean, Brian Boling

Votes: 140

Funny but doesn't date very well. The performance is good but not great, it must be hard to try to parody Steve Irwin while also parodying Star Wars! Ambitious and fun.

15. Sith Apprentice (2005)

12 min | Comedy, Sci-Fi, Short

A parody of the NBC hit reality show The Apprentice, set in the Star Wars universe. Emperor Palpatine needs a new apprentice to further his goals of galactic domination, and has turned to ... See full summary »

I know a lot of people who didn't like this but I thought it was a lot of fun!

Stars: Aaron Yonda, Matt Sloan, Paul Guse, Craig Johnson

Votes: 115

After the original short blew up on YouTube, they made a series. It started great and they're all worth watching but the episodes progressively got less and less funny. Probably just because they had to keep cranking out new ideas, but also you just tend to get tired of seeing the same character... I'll always be a fan of Chad though!

Not Rated | 29 min | Short, Adventure, Comedy
