“Hoshino” is a short fan film by director Stephen Vitale that tells the tale of a blind Jedi, named Master Ko Hoshino, that is on a journey to becoming one with the force.
Star Wars fan films are a dime a dozen. But this one is actually really good one. It’s a great character study that’s beautifully shot and also features some pretty cool scenes and visuals. The story itself is concise, and pulls from a lot of themes present in the Star Wars movies, especially The Force Awakens.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters December 16, 2016.
