Réalisé par Sekani Solomon, Star Wars : The Last Stand est un fanfilm mettant en scène des stormtroopers face à un adversaire mystérieux.
Le créateur explique avoir voulu prendre le contrepied du cliché des stormtroopers stupides et incompétents, pour en faire des soldats efficaces. L’idée était aussi, explique-t-il, de trouver les bons angles de caméra et de se focaliser sur les moments souvent laissés de côté dans les films.
Le projet a été créé essentiellement en solitaire, durant le temps libre de Sekani Solomon et en l’espace de trois ans.
