Lost 'Star Wars' Short Film 'Black Angel' to Be Released Soon

6 March 2014 8:09 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While everyone eagerly awaits Star Wars: Episode VII, fans have a new reason to get excited. Roger Christian's long lost fantasy short film Black Angel will become available for the first time ever this year, possibly through iTunes or Netflix and may be part of a DVD re-release of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back.

What's so special about this particular short? While it doesn't tie directly into the Star Wars mythology, the 1980 film was shown in theaters with the original May 21, 1980 release of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back in select localations. It was the directorial debut of Star Wars art director Roger Christian and was thought to have disappeared forever, until the film was rediscovered in December 2011.

George Lucas himself commissioned the short as a companion piece, which served as an introduction to Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. »
