In the 12 years since Kevin Rubio's Troops launched the Star Wars fan film craze there's been many subsequent short films set in that galaxy far, far away. Most of them have been done as dramas/adventures, with a few comedies thrown in for good measure. But even with all of the Star Wars fan films that have been made to date, you're telling me that no one has thought up a blacksploitation fan film starring the coolest cat this side of Bespin, Lando Calrissian?
Thanks to the coolest cat of the comic book online realm (Comics2Film's Rob Worley, who's latest comic, Scratch 9, deserves your eyeball love) I've had the chance to see the trailer for Blackstar Warrior. This shakycam footage was shot on a Blackberry at last week's Comic-Con, but you can still enjoy it for what it is: a trailer for a blacksploitation Star Wars movie with Lando as the leading man.
Digging a little deeper, I came across a set of videos that sets up the parody nature of Blackstar Warrior: it's supposed to be a lost Star Wars movie, filmed in-between the '77 release of A New Hope and 1980's The Empire Strikes Back. I'm pretty certain that this is the first Star Wars fan film to go that extra mile and incorporate a fleshed-out background story about the making of their movie.
