TIE Fighter Short Film. Paul Johnson‘s TIE Fighter (2015) short film, a Star Wars-inspired fan film, has been released with sound by Zak Rahman and Joseph Leyva. TIE Fighter‘s plot and creation synopsis: “What if there was an Empire-focused short Star Wars animation, drawn with the crazy detail and shading of classic 80s anime that’s all but vanished from Japan nowadays? Well, I tried my best.”
