  • Treasure of the Jedi - Adventurer Eira Oldassi and her droid-sidekick T5-88 dodge Imperial Stormtroopers to recover a lost cache of ancient Jedi holocrons. Complicating our heroes' efforts are bounty hunters Alkir Jes and Ion Meev.  
  • TROOPS - A parody of COPS which takes place during A New Hope. A camera crew follows Imperial Stormtroopers who interrogate and then execute a band of droid-stealing Jawas, shortly before (violently) settling a "domestic dispute" which involves Luke Skywalker's aunt and uncle. 2002 Winner of the Pioneer Award; one of the first fan-films to be made, it still ranks among the best-known and most popular.
  • Turncoat - Three Jedi are sent by their Master Goran Rayd to hunt down fellow Knight Matthias Dryker, who has become a Sith Acolyte. Only when she finds Dryker does Gwyn Vaeda realize that Rayd has set them up.
  • Star Wars Uncut - 2010 Winner of the Creative Arts Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Interactive Media
  • Vader: Shards of the Past - For 8 months (since Revenge of the Sith), Darth Vader has enforced Emperor Palpatine's will. Torn between the loss of Padme Naberrie and the cursed life he now leads, Vader is lured (by a Jedi Master who survived Order 66) to the planet of the late Amidala's tomb. There he does what a Sith Lord's gotta do...
  • Vengeance In the Outer Rim - Jedi Knight Zaalia Ven is shot down and marooned on a remote world. How will she defend herself, and her hapless pilot, from the threat lurking within the forest?
  • Versus: the Way to Shadow - Takes place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Darius is a fugitive Jedi Knight...the last of his Order, for all he knows. Now he's tracked relentlessly (albeit for very different reasons) by a Rebel agent, an Imperial inquisitor, a bounty hunter, and a Sith Lord.
  • White Armour - Basically Generation Kill meets Starship Troopers, this movie follows the Stormtroopers of an Imperial Recon Unit. Due to be released in April 2015.
  • Star Wars: Wrath of the Sith - Takes place shortly after Revenge of the Sith. Darth Vader dispatches two of his own Sith apprentices, Lords Volex and Ky-Sin, to hunt down two fugitive Jedi...Master Elius Echo, and his Padawan Kira Nyon.
