Star Wars fan film explains real reason Anakin went to Dark Side

Star Wars Episode 1.5 - Why Didn't Anakin Save His Mom?

The Star Wars prequels did an admirable job of bridging the gap leading into the seminal originals, but there are still a few boneheaded questions that remain. Luckily, this hilarious fan film is here to answer at least one of them.

This parody clip, interspersed with actual footage from the prequel films, has some solid effects work to match the look of the original scene. It also answers the age-old question: Why didn’t Anakin ever go back and rescue his mom?

Here’s the episode description:

Why didn't Anakin return to Tatooine to rescue his mom in the ten years between Episode One and Two? The answer turned out to be pretty funny in this MTV Movie Awards-style parody.

The parody was put together by the folks at p3pictures, and is an admirable effort. Here’s hoping they tackle a few more franchises in the future.
