Combining Star Wars with hyper-stylized 80's anime, Paul Michael Johnson has produced TIE Fighter, an animated short that showcases the famous fight between stormtroopers and rebel factions for the fate of the galaxy.

Johnson took four years to complete this long awaited short, which not only shows amazing detail and shading of 80's anime, but also adds new dimensions like a glimpse of the people beneath the stormtrooper armors and picturesque explosions.

The short comes at the perfect time for those excited about The Force Awakens and is a visually stunning reminder of the epic tale of the Empire.
