Cool Videos: This Tie Figher short is the Star Wars show fans deserve
There haven't been many TV shows on Star Wars over the years, and while shows like Clone Wars (the series) and Rebels have their merits (or so I'm told), nothing quite compares to hand-drawn animation. There's a reason why Star Wars fans still talk about Genndy Tartakovsky's short-lived Clone Wars cartoons and if you liked that animation style, you're going to LOVE this. A man by the name of Paul Johnson spent the last 4 years drawing out an 80s-style cartoon based on the classic Tie Fighter game, and it's just as insanely awesome as you'd want it to be.
I hope your grin was as big as mine watching that, and I think it's worth posting what the creator had to say about the project if you enjoyed it. In his words: "Don't support me on Patreon, because I don't have one! And don't donate to my Kickstarter, because I don't have one of those either. Instead, if you enjoyed this, give someone at your workplace, uni, school or whatever a random bar of chocolate or can or Coke or something. Seriously, it'll probably make their day. That would totally make my day." Way to be a stand-up guy! Although I would urge the man to look into crowd funding to get his next project done. Given how well this turned out, people would jump on that in a heartbeat. Props go out to Johnson and everyone else who worked on this for a job well-done.
