However Smuggler's Run is NOT an official Star Wars project. It is a (non-profit) fan film made by fans for fans, every thing we are doing is inspired by George lucas' Star Wars. (All rights related to the Star Wars universe are the property of Lucasfilm Ltd. Disney and the other registered owners).What is Smuggler's Run about?Our short film is set between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back. We will explore the more brutal and sinister characters within the Star Wars universe.We will follow Bounty hunters, smugglers and the Empire in their hunt for the last remnant of the Jedi archives. A small holocron that can change the fate of the Galaxy...What is the Director's vision for Smuggler's Run?The plan is to make a dramatic story that will thrill fans of Star Wars. Smuggler's run will be a mix of drama and action.We want our project to look like Star Wars. Smuggler's Run will look professional, but we are making every thing happen on a small budget. We have great actors lined up. We will be using HD Camera's and best props and costumes we can afford. We are actually making our own masks for that authentic look.We have already filmed at the original locations at Tozeur and Matmata in Tunisia. We have also filmed scenes at Cappadocia in Turkey and plan to shoot additional scenes in Hong Kong!We are very excited about 'Smuggler's Run' and hope you will be too!
