Storyline

This 60 minute documentary follows the 501st UK Garrison Star Wars costuming club around the UK, as they attend a variety of fund raising events - revealing the side of costuming you've never seen before. From international film premieres to children's hospital visits, witness the impact that the UK Garrison have on the hearts and minds of the fan's they meet. Many people have a misguided perception of costumers, labelling them as "nerds" and "geeks". The film will reveals the wide variety of people who are inspired to join the UK Garrison, from all walks of life and occupations. For these individuals, being "Heroes of the Empire" is their true identity. *Heroes of the Empire is not affiliated or endorsed by The Walt Disney Company, Lucasfilm Ltd, their subsidaries or sister companies, or any Star Wars licence holder.

A moving viewing experience
10 February 2019 | by Marchant-1See all my reviews

I am a relatively new member of the 501st Legion here in the USA. I have not met any of the members in this film from the UK, but can say it is true to the mission and my experience of the 501st. It is beautifully filmed and truly a moving experience that captures why we "dress up" as characters from a galaxy far far away. I highly recommend it.
