UnBoxed Films presents TK-436: A Stormtrooper Story, the gritty tale of a loyal Imperial Stormtrooper who is forced to confront his past in the heat of an epic battle. Directed by Samtubia & Samgoma Edwards, it is imagined from a perspective seldom explored within the Star Wars universe.

It won the 2016 Filmmaker Select Award at Star Wars Celebration Europe, and was chosen by a panel of judges that included Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘s director Gareth Edwards, executive producer John Knoll of Industrial Light & Magic, and co-producer John Swartz.
