There's a pretty neat Star War feature brickfilm by the name of Kightrise by the brickfilmer Mysteriouspi. It's made up of a series 13 short films, which were spread out between 2013-2017, and was recently re-released as a complete film with the run time of 1 hour and 20 minutes.
Now, I would like to mention that it does have a pretty, let's say unsubtle Christian message, which can be somewhat distracting at times, and I'm not sure what I think of involving Christianity in the Star Wars universe. It is a strange decision, and it probably didn't need it, but don't let that put you off this film. The first 20 or so minutes of the film are quite heavy handed with it's message, but after that, it focuses more on the protagonist's journey, seeing events from the prequel and Original trilogies through his perspective. And I would say, as out of place as it might be in the Star Wars universe, his spiritual journey, his doubts and his struggles are actually handled with a lot of care, and it becomes a part of his development as a character, rather than a preachy message that slows down the plot.
Despite being originally split up in 13 parts, it works surprisingly well as one feature length film, with good pacing and a clear 3 act structure.
The animation, while not perfect, does improve as the film goes on. It was 4 years in the making, and it does show, as the last half of the film looks pretty good. The set design is also very nice throughout. It is, unfortunately, very focused on green screen, which does offer some pretty awesome shots, especially during space battles, but whenever there's a shot from out of a window, and it's in the background, the green screen image will be in focus, whilst the set in front of it might be out of focus, which can be distracting.
However, despite it's flaws, it is really worth the watch. The characters are really well developed, and you really get to care about them by the end of the film. The dialogue is also very strong, and it has a compelling story to back it all up. 8/10!
I highly recommend it, if you have a spare hour and a half. If you don't, and you're put off by the run time, you can always watch it in segments, as it was originally released right here!
