White Armour A Star Wars Fan Film Released

The new Star Wars Fan Film White Armour has been released on YouTube.

White Armour is described as Generation Kill meets Starship Troopers. The film is set in the Star Wars Universe and takes viewers into the world of Falco, an Imperial Officer Academy dropout who has recently been stripped of his rank and been conscripted into the Imperial Forces infamous Squad #1919 to destroy Rebel Scum. Squad #1919 has been sent on a recon mission to hunt down the source of the Blackwing Virus; a deadly pathogen being developed by Rebel Forces.

In a recent article, White Armour A Star Wars Fan Film, I wrote of my excitement for the release of White Armour. Well, the wait is over and it was worth it. White Armour is 17 minutes of pure entertainment. Thanks to White Armour’s Kickstarter campaign the film was funded and we can now enjoy watching Imperial Troopers hit their targets and destroy Rebel Scum.

In every age there is a cause worth fighting for…What happens along the way? Find out by watching White Armour.

My Thoughts on White Armour

(May Contain Spoilers) Overall, I thought White Armour was well done and the film was very entertaining. The locations of the film were beautiful and really made me feel like I was there with the Troopers. The film had a fun way of being shot as if the scenes were coming out of the pages of a Comic Book; kind of like the movie “Kick-Ass”. I was interested with how the Troopers show no remorse for Rebel Scum and don’t bat an eye when asked to eliminate the enemy. All of these factors tie into why I am easily entertained by fan films. Fan films are awesome because it gives die hard fans the chance to express their creativity and expand on an already amazing established story line. White Armour did exactly that and expanded on an already established Star Wars Universe but took on the view from Imperial Troopers.

The film had a dark humor that lingered over the film and I thought it made perfect sense. For instance, there was humor when two of the Troopers are making bets at shooting an armed Jawa. The humor came after the Troopers shot the Jawa and they start talking smack to each other as they are walking back to the squad; one of the Trooper says “At least we hit something today”, and then the other Trooper says “At least I hit something today”. I got a kick out of this because Storm Troopers are notorious for missing their target. If you are a fan of the original “Star Wars” movies then you will understand. On the opposite end of the humor was the straight dark brutal treatment of the Rebels by the Troopers. Lord Vader ordered Squad #1919 to eliminate all Rebel Forces on their recon mission and eliminate Rebel Scum they do. We see multiple Rebel executions throughout the film as our Troopers continue their mission. A point of view most Star Wars fans are not used to seeing. I liked how viewers get a taste of the strange twisted competitive personality of Imperial Troopers; especially after the Jawa was shot and then after the executions at the rebel base where we see a slight smirk come from Falco after executing the Rebels.

If you enjoyed the film, like I did, then you are probably excited about the end of the film and how there will potentially be another White Armour film. We will see where White Armour takes us next time but I have a good feeling it will touch on the Blackwing Virus. The images from the last scene give us a little taste of the executed Rebel pilot who was more than likely exposed to the Blackwing Virus. Let me know what you think of the film and your thoughts on where you think White Armour will take their next film in the comments below?
