Kickstarter Campaign To Make A Fan-Film From Star Wars The Old Republic Era Called "Eternal"

kickstarter star wars eternal

As a gamer I long for any revisit to The Old Republic era.  The best Star Wars games were set in this era which takes you back around 5000 years.  If you've played The Old Republic then you probably remember those incredible opening rendered scenes with Sith and Jedi battling hard.  You probably wished, like me that they would do a movie like this.  Well leave it to some dedicated Star Wars fans to do just that.  The project is called Eternal and the campaign has only just begun.  The goal is low, just £750 and for just £5 you can have your name in the credits.  That's a bargain.  Here's the link to the campaign and below are more details on the story of "Eternal."  Production is planner for April this year.  We'll keep you updated on this promising project.



The Story

5000 years before the events of Death Stars and Skywalkers, there was the Eternal Empire: a great dominion, led by a fractured family, that conquered both Jedi and Sith alike. Eternal is a Star Wars fan film dedicated to telling the story of that family.

The mythology of the Eternal Empire and the time before what most people know as Star Wars is something we find fascinating. There are so many great fan films out there, but as few of them tackled this source material, we took it upon ourselves to tell the story of the twisted family at the heart of this all-conquering Empire.

Senya Tirall, Knight and Empress of the Eternal Empire, has found her children alienated from her. Her husband’s, the immortal Emperor Valkorion, indifference only pushes them further away and when he locks one child away to contain their immense power, Senya can no longer stand to bear witness to such travesties and transfers to a regiment on the outer fringes of the galaxy. Years later, her children are aged and bitter and they cross paths with their mother once more.

Eternal needs your support  

Star Wars is its own community and we rely on one another, sharing in our joint love of all things nerdy. With your help we can bring this awesome world to life in a way that’s never been seen before; we plan on using weapons rarely seen on screen, such as lightsabre pikes and lightsabre daggers, costumes that are unique to the era, choreography specific to each character’s fighting style, and more. So far we have a finished script and a lot of the preliminary work, but the extent of what we can achieve and create is down to the support we receive.

By joining Eternal you can be a part of bringing this film to life.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
