Steampunk (Meets Star Wars) Short Film: Trial of the Mask

11411877_1048402758538041_9095083533308125160_oSteampunk fans seem to overlap heavily with Star Wars fans, giving us tons of amazing fan art and interpretations of this crossover. I recently ran across the film, Trial of the Mask, which features just such a mash-up. The aesthetic is decidedly Steampunk, but the story is all about Boba Fett on a mission. Based on the condition of the Death Star in the opening shot, I’d have to assume that this story takes place sometime before the events of A New Hope. The production quality is surprisingly high for a fan film, and I think this one really does deserve a watch. According to their website, a sequel, Mask of Vengeance, is in the works and due out sometime this Spring, but for now here is The Trial of the Mask.

  2. We just watched the film.
    I know that girl! The girl that befriends Boba and then dies in the ship is a close personal friend of mine!
    I am going to go contact her right now. Thanks, Phoebe!

    • That’s so cool and random! I am glad you like my recommendations. I came across this one because of a wicked cool photo of a costume from the sequel. I can’t wait to watch it when it comes out 🙂
