Georgia wide receiver Chris Conley is an integral part of the Bulldogs offense, and was one of Aaron Murray‘s favorite targets last season. But the star wideout is also a big Star Wars fanboy, and his fan film, Star Wars: Retribution, is set to make its long awaited debut.
The story of the film was first reported by UGA alumni Chris Queen, who has followed the project since Conley first started organizing actual light saber duals on the Georgia campus. Now he’s ready to unleash his Jedi spirit on the entire Bulldog Nation.
Conley has been tweeting about his project for months now, and a couple of days ago, he gave the green light on the release date.
Retribution is about to be released July 5th. Follow @8prod for information on our next project ‘Volition’. Casting will begin soon RT

Conley has actually put together his own production company, Infinite Productions (@8prod on Twitter) and has released several trailers for the film. If you’re both a UGA fan and a Star Wars geek (like me) this is like Christmas and a birthday all wrapped up together.
Here are the trailers

This looks like some incredibly fun stuff, and we can’t wait for the finished product to be shown.
