Sequels and Continuity
Star Wars Thread of Destiny had an total running time of 105 minutes show. Though it was generally considered an excellent fan film, it could not be entered into The Official Star Wars Fan Film Awards because it was much longer than the contest’s upper time limit. During the year of 2010, there were plans to create two sequels for the film, and the scripts for both of them were already written. Since Threads of Destiny took about nine years to complete, however, it is unlikely that Tirzitis will make another fan film again. YouTube and BitTorrent released the film on February 23, 2014 online while there was an gala premiere also took place in Sweden.
