A fun movie...if you can find it

This is a very charming little movie (excuse the expression). Obviously not meant to be taken all that seriously, it's a funny story that gives viewers a chance to see (sort of) behind-the-scenes footage from "Return of the Jedi", as well as some priceless comic bits (like Threepio demanding more movie star perks).

I'd heard about this movie for several years, and even saw part of it at the Denver "Star Wars Celebration" in 1999. I didn't see the whole film until 2005 at the "Celebration" in Indianapolis. There, I was lucky enough to see a presentation featuring Warwick Davis himself providing live commentary.

At the time, Davis said that an official release of the film would be all but impossible, due to rights issues and a lack of high-quality source material. Bootleg copies are reportedly available, but your best bet to see it is at a fan convention. In any case, I recommend this movie for fans of both "Star Wars" and affectionate "Star Wars" spoofs.
