Awesome Short Film Shows "Star Wars" From The Empire's Perspective

War, a product of the human condition, can be described often in certain terms.  That there are both bad guys and good guys on each side of every conflict ever fought is an understood facet.  Even in galaxies far far away from our own.

Pretty much every huge Star Wars fan has wondered if there ever could be a movie told from the perspective of The Empire, the giant megalomaniacal world destroying force that in our original trilogy has subjugated entire galaxies under it's iron fist.

Now there is one. TIE Fighter is a short animation by Paul Johnson that shows a bit of Star Wars from the perspective of the Empire. It's done in the style of anime from the 80's and shows an aerial fight scene between TIE fighters and X-wings and is pretty much so awesome that Disney, current owners of everything Star Wars, should make this an entire movie.

Take THAT rebel scum!

I mean, let's face it.  TIE fighters are way cool, Darth Vader rules, and The Empire has way better uniforms in that strange facist sheik kind of way (remember boys and girls, facism sucks).

What I am saying is I so want to root for the bad guys.

Hell yeah.
I mean if you think about it, The Empire isn't so bad...they were fighting a group of religious zealots who followed their faith over any semblance of logic.  A group who takes over foreign planets of adorable teddy bears in order to use them as child soldiers...

And the Imperials don't even use human lives as fodder for war, just a bunch of clones.  Another plus side, no human casualties (well that matter at least).

Think about it, but before you do, watch this awesome thing:

Alright Disney, your move.  You mentioned before you want to milk this whole Star Wars thing for all it's worth, so get to it.  I want a Wookie centric movie followed up by an Empire biopic.
