Director's Comments

Jedi learner Ar-Ren Tern struggles with his spirituality as he finds himself in the middle of historic Star Wars events. With the help of others, he wrestles with God and battles new evils, forever changing the destiny of that galaxy far, far away.

This is the first part of Knightrise where the religious aspects of the film come into play. A lot of people commented that it was a weird choice and didn't really fit. I totally get that, and won't cross genres like this again. That said, I knew what I was getting into and don't regret it. Knightrise would be a way more generic fan fiction without it, and I don't think that would have inspired me to finish it out.

This small part of the film isn't very technical. Probably the most interesting thing going on is the octagonal build of the meditation room. It's not done with a legal building technique, but it works. I did play around with using some LEGO action light bricks at the ends of hallways but I don't think that turned out very well.
