To answer many "angry" people, no, this is not roto-scoped, this is drawn from working with fencers, memorizing the fight, and watching the movie and pausing it from a TV, this is why many of the movements are sloppy. Finally a submission that glorifies Star Wars, I'm sorry, but i'm tired of seeing fat kids try and fight with lightsabers in their backyards. The main thing to notice about this is the frame-by-frame animation. I wanted to try and do something that appeared "water color esc" but actually have to draw it by frames. I would encourage anyone taking on flash to learn how to take your time and draw frame-by-frame because I'm sick of flash animators who have a character float past the screen and claim they "animate". So I chose to animate something fun, STAR WARS, this is part 2, part 1 is missing in an old computer and part 3 isnt done. Anyway, Enjoy!

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Well done!

Yes, good movie, but it could've been longer.
But I realize this takes a long time do in flash, so it's excusable. Excellent animation. Your effects are pretty good.
Keep up the great work!

Also, glorifying Star Wars may be a "noble" cause, but there is still a place for parody and humor. I find it somewhat annoying how many people think Star Wars is so great that any humor made of it is evil or something. lol.
Anyway, I liked this animation a lot!

This is nothing but traced footage from the movie.

Poorly exectuted frame by frame, terrible syncing, an insult to Star Wars lovers. If you want to make a tribute to the movies learn how to animate and do your own work, dont just trace over a scene from the movie.

I really enjoyed the drawing style; it is so odd, but so very good. And the movement, although slightly stalled in some places, was quite good. The sound effects were a little off near the end, but not enough to throw off the flash overall. I just wish there was more to this; it is rather short and stops at the climax. Good job overall, though.

It's not bad, overall, but nothing stands out as good either. The sound is awful, though; the voices are unintelligable, and you missed some of the lightsaber effects near the end of the animation.
