needs more Star Wars less life stories
14 September 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Various bit players and extras from 'Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope' (1977) talk about their lives before and after the movie. Some of the filming took place at Elstree Studios. There are stories from the set and the hierarchy that these minor actors find themselves with the fans. This is really only compelling for Star Wars fans. The bits of stories about these actors are not that compelling. It does paint a picture of post-war Britain and there is surprisingly quite a few Canadian connections. The movie should really concentrate much more on the set stories as well as the fans and conventions afterwards. Those are the money and has the most connection to Star Wars. That's what's important and not the random life stories of these minor actors.
