OtaKing77077 : Hello everyone! Thanks for all the kind comments. I'm glad you like seeing the Empire's TIE series getting some well-deserved screentime! In case you're wondering what I'm up to now, here's an update video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6uZfTRv0K0&t=0s (It has a bunch of clips from other projects I've animated that you might not have seen, so take a look if you want to see spaceships exploding!) Cheers!

LevelCapGaming : This is the best thing I have ever seen. I want to watch a whole 80s anime style Star Wars movie now.

Korya Iine : Who would win? *Multi billion dollar company that bought Star Wars* OR *_1 drawing boi_*

Blyatiful Cyka : this is what we could have had but no we got resistance

Dennis Shih : These 7 minutes > The Last Jedi

The Swartz : 7 minute homemade Star Wars animation; INFINITELY more interesting than the multi-million dollar Episode 8 movie just released. What is wrong with this scenario?

Croz Raven : Better than the entirety of Disney new SW trilogy space battle scenes.

ZoidFile : Even without saying a single word, that female Tie fighter pilot is more interesting than Phasma will ever be.

Diedrich Makato : How's THAT for a strong female character? I already relate more to unnamed Tie Bomber Pilot than Rey

THEOFILO4 : grievous watches Resistance: Time to abandon the ship grievous watching this video up here^: Another fine addition to my collection

Ehre : That's how you do an animated Star Wars "anime-like" show, not like Resistance...

RiulDoamnei : This should be designated Imperial Navy official recruiting film. I've never respected so much the TIE bomber.

HK-50 : Statement: This animation is surprisingly better than what the pathetic organics at Disney have conjured up for Star Wars: Resistance.

Almighty Supreme Leader Weegee : The TIE Bomber pilot is already more badass than Phasma in a 7 minute video.

orionek : Here to clean eyes after SW: Resistance trailer.

CJ Johnson : When you can't stop crying because The Resistance got funded and this hasn't...

anti brony master race : I needed this after watching star wars rebels end with the murder of thousands of imperials.

George Washington : Imperial Fleet: Every SW Fans Rebel Fleet: Disney crap

Starnick : They should've hired you for the new SW Resistance "anime" tv show...

Michał Skup : I just saw Star Wars: Resistance trailer. They're not even close to you.

Darth Vader : Impressive... most impressive...

BaronVonGamez : That Interdictor Cruiser though... And this definitely needs it's own series! 

[ Purplepumagaming ] : And then take a look at the trailers for Star Wars Resistance. Disney is so pitiful

A. C. Neal : Why didn't they hire this guy to work on SW: Resistance???

Samuel Adams : The dialog was 10x better then TLJ's.

TheMightyThor83 : The difference between this and The Last Jedi and Resistance is that this film was created by someone who loves the source material and wants to honor it. Last Jedi and Resistance is made by a company that sees Star Wars as nothing but dollar signs and as a vehicle to push their politics.

Datch : All hail the Empire

ecurb _ : Paul Johnson > Rian Johnson

Wistful HERBz : It's nice to see the good guys win for a change.

Jaime Guzmán : Tie Fighter is better than Star Wars Resistance

sablephoenix : Okay. As someone who has studied animation techniques (I went to art college for it and learned both traditional cel and computer animation), that pedestal dolly over the bow of the star destroyer at 5:35 is absolutely RIDICULOUS. The difficulty of pulling something like this off in cel animation is just plain not understood by anyone who hasn't actually hand-drawn animation frames before, but from this point on I literally, out loud, said, "WHAT?! This is ridiculous!" Kudos to you for saving all your most advanced animation techniques for the end of the video. Especially considering that I doubt anyone unfamiliar with how cel animation is made even fully realizes how difficult this was to create.

trycoldman23 : *Compare this to Star Wars Rebels*

Andy 2.0 : Who else is here after Resistance?

Blake Bridges : I love how a seven minute star wars animation tells a better story than a two hour high budget movie made by Lucas film.

B : I needed to watch this again to get that awful Sta Wars resistance trailer out of my head. To remind myself that star wars has the greatest fans but its at the hands of a company treating it like hot garbage.

krasilozanov90 : This is the only JOHNSON we need :)

OtaKing77077 : Hello all, My current job contract is ending in December and I'm considering what to do. One one hand, I'll have infinite time to spare. On the other hand, I'll have no money coming in. So my options are to get another full-time animation gig or take some time off to do some actual full-length TIE Fighter episodes (with actual ongoing story and voice acting this time) and stick 'em up on Youtube for free (obviously. Since it would be a fan film and all). Just out of interest, if I set up a patreon or gofundme page or whatnot, would anyone be interested in chucking some spare change in so I can buy food, or would it seem like really tasteless shilling? Luckily I live cheaply so I wouldn't need much to pay the bills and keep me in sandwiches (plus however much voice actors cost), which would free me up to work 9-10 hours per day animating a fully self-contained TIE mini-series (yes, with original trilogy-era lightsaber fights if you insist. I have plenty of story material worked out - I've just had no time to actually do it until now). Like I said, this is just a "what if" question to see if enough people would be interested. Let me know your thoughts, either here or on muh Twitter or Deviantart page (links are in the video info above). Basically, if you supply the cheap ham sandwiches, I'll supply the animation. ...Wow. What a crappy tagline.

KingTimmahB : I was expecting a Gundam to appear. This is waaaaay better than anything Disney's put out recently.

ThatRandomDude : Paul Johnson > Rian Johnson

Dalek Emperor : Finally, someone with the name johnson makes something good, instead of just trying to devide the fanbase for his own worthless ego. Seriously, this 7 minute short was five times better than the last jedi ever will be. I commend your little but beyond entertaining video good sir!

Baba Yaga : I hope when im in my 40s that trumps space force actually happens

Lord Inquisiteur Willhelm Von Steiner : Honestly, even if Palpatine is evil as hell and lot of miffs are corrupted as hell, the Empire is probably the most beneficial organization in the entire lore of Star Wars. Hell, Palpatine might not be giving a shit about living sentients beings, but he make sure that the order is kept throughout the whole galaxy, taking away everyone's freedom but in the same time, technically protecting everyone, because too much freedom equal massacres. The vast majority of stormtroopers, tie fighters pilots, imperial soldiers, tanks/vehicles crews, engineers, scientists, officers (Both low ranked and high ranked), naval captains, and in general, the vast majority of the people's who fight and serve for the empire are actually good people's and truly believe that they are keeping order in the galaxy.

jfhgksjdhfkthe2nd : Oh my GOD I'd watch the shit outta this if it was a series.

Captain Valor : 10/10 Better than Star Wars Resistance

Kruger : finally a battle where the rebel scum didn't get saved by a one in a million coincident, like it happened all the time in every movie...

Joachim Schad : Amazing. This is what the new Resistance show should've looked like...

Arson Rides : i was looking up videos on how to tie a tie.... and now I'm here.... still fighting with my tie... the tie won...

CeQyou : I have goosebumps every time i watch this film. Disney, give this man money to make a full length film.

S Plass : This looks way better than "Star Wars: Resistance". I happened to be sick while watching this, and this is easy on the eyes compared to that Resistance trailer. So way to go there! I also see you dropped the plot armor.

J D : I'd rather watch this than the last jedi
