BUCKETHEADS is a Star Wars Fan Film from the Stormtroopers' perspective.

The full film was released to YouTube on December 8, 2018 and can be found here.

The creators are planning on expanding to a full series. The trailer for Season 1 can be found here.

The Fan-film contains the following examples:

  • Both Sides Have a Point: The rebel prisoner claims that the rebels are just women and children which the Empire slaughtered. The Stormtrooper, 423, who was actually there, recounts that these rebels attack first and killed several colony members.
  • Cliffhanger: The movie ends with this with 423 letting his old friend to escape, leaving the Rebel general to him. Meanwhile, the fate of 53 is unknown after being shot by the rebel prisoner.
  • Crash Course Landing: An Imperial transport gets shot down by Imperial forces. Some of them survived, kick starting the movie.
  • Impeded Communication: 212 discovers Rebels and attempts to call for his squad only for the enemy jam the communications. This leads 212 to remove his helmet and warn them before being shot.

  • Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: Surpisingly averted. Nova Squad is one of the most competent Stormtroopers in Star Wars history.
  • We Used to Be Friends: 423 and Rico were once friends but now they are fighting from the opposite sides.
  • X Meets Y: The first featurette for the film describes it as Band of Brothers meets Star Wars.
