TIE Fighter – An 80s Anime Themed Star Wars Short

This amazing animated short by artist Paul Johnson pays homage to the late 80s early 90s Japanese anime style TV programmes of that era.

TIE Fighter  is a work of passion by Johnson and it shows. It took him four years to painstakingly hand draw the entire short. He explains:

“What if there was an Empire-focused short Star Wars animation, drawn with the crazy detail and shading of classic 80s anime that’s all but vanished from Japan nowadays? Well, I tried my best. Apologies in advance for not living up to Venus Wars standards.”

There is no need to apologise Paul. You nailed it!
