Even with George Lucas no longer at the helm, Star Wars seems to be left in capable hands with Disney calling the shots at Lucasfilm.
But for those of us fans who grow impatient waiting for "Rogue One" to be released, it's up to us to make our own movie magic. So what better way to make an R2-D2 adventure than with drones?
In the video "Drone Star Wars" posted by YouTube user Corridor Digital, R2-D2 pilots Luke Skywalker's X-Wing solo with Imperial Stormtroopers in TIE fighters hot on his trail.
The X-Wing and TIE fighters are drones that shoot from the ship's point of view, making this a very cool fan film created from the pilots' perspective.
Whether the chase takes the ships zigzagging through dessert terrain, weaving around bridges, or speeding through a forest, "Drone Star Wars" feels just as exciting as the real action-packed feature-length Star Wars films.
Be sure to also watch this behind-the-scenes video, which shows how Corridor Digital made the props and effects to go with the drone footage.
