Trivia

Troops producers had previously spotted the Stormtroopers on TV being interviewed while they were standing in line for the updated showing of Star Wars. In effect, the Stormtroopers made their costumes for themselves, not for the movie, which is virtually unprecedented in the history of costuming. See more »

Goofs

According to Star Wars, the planet Tattooine orbits a double star. Therefore all inhabitants and objects on the planet should be casting two shadows. See more »

Quotes

Captain Jyanix Bach: Well, what we had here was that these, uh, Jawas had stolen some Imperial property and it unfortunately turned violent. These Jawas do this kind of stuff all the time, pickin' up, you know, stray droids and sellin' them off to the highest-paying customer...
[Imperial unit blasts Sandcrawler in the background.]
Capt. Reh Teah: Well, we didn't find the droids we were looking for, but we did find one that a kid had reported stolen. So, he and his parents are gonna come down to the detention center and, uh, pick it...

The master example for good spin-off.
29 December 1998 | by (Munich, Germany) – See all my reviews

I heard about Troops a while ago from a friend of mine, who surfs Star Wars related sites very often and very intense. He did not see it, though, as it is just too hard to download. Today, I kind of accidentally stumbled across it, downloaded it (We have some excellent lines here at work...) and watched it. I nearly wet my pants. Troops even looks like taken from Star Wars! Incredible! And it really feels like a report from some reality show from the future. I will recommend Troops now to everyone I know, as it is in my eyes exactly the kind of film that can and should be done with little money and a good idea! My congratulations to everyone on the team: You guys just made history!
