25 Days of Christmas (Carol): Day 13
Adaptation number 13 is one of many Star Wars fan tribute videos from 2002, Star Wars: A Christmas Carol. Darth Vader takes the role of Scrooge this time around, with Jar Jar Binks, Jabba the Hutt, and Boba Fett playing the Ghost of Christmas Past, Present, and Future respectively. The animation feels very amateur, the characters seem to glide instead of walk, and talking comes off very jerky (think CD-i Mario cutscenes to understand what I mean). The voice acting is no better, making one wonder how this short film made it as a Star Wars Fan Film Awards finalist. But, despite its faults, its short length makes sure that this adaptation doesn’t overstay its welcome. If you have a spare 10 minutes, its worth a watch, but leave your expectations at the door.
