Congratulations to our two “Jedi Junkies” winners!
This week, our favorite storm-trooper TD-0013 celebrates the 30th anniversary of and offers us his thoughts on what many consider to be the best of the Star Wars saga, The Empire Strikes Back.
When asked which of the Star Wars films their favorite is, most people choose the Empire Strikes Back, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Back in May of 1980, the second film in what would come to be known as the Star Wars saga hit theaters across the globe. I was around 10 years old at the time, and while the first film, Star Wars, had captured my imagination, it was The Empire Strikes Back that really cinched the deal for me. I was a Sci-Fi geek and there wasn’t anything anyone could do about it. What was it about this film that surpassed the first in so many regards?
Earlier this year, we brought you news about the on-line project to recreate “Star Wars” in fifteen second clips.
Many of those clips used toys from the original and updated toy lines. Now, one fan has recreated several of the sequences from “A New Hope” using his toy collection.
JEDI JUNKIES is a film about real men and women who dedicate their personal and professional lives to all things Star Wars.
Directed by Mark Edlitz and featuring Olivia Munn (host, ‘Attack of the Show’), it’s a fun and affectionate look at how some Star Wars fans’ appreciation can go well beyond mere admiration.
Here’s a cool new fan made video that tells the entire story of the original “Star Wars” trilogy in just over two minutes and using Legos.
