The European Premiere took place at SCI-FI-LONDON 4
Though a Star Wars fan as a child, life holds no magic or adventure for Woody Garrison (Joe Urban).
Divorced and working two jobs to pay medical bills for his terminally ill son, Star Wars is now just a movie. Only at the request of his son (Scott Heffern II) does he set off with his childhood buddy, Hank (Jim Peterson), on a quest to find filmmaker George Lucas (George Starkey) and convince him to continue making Star Wars movies.
Through a series of mishaps, Woody and Hank accidentally kidnap Lucas and allow the script for Episode III to fall into the hands of an unbalanced fan (Scott C. Sendelweck), a murderous producer and a certain Dark Lord portraying actor (Dave Prowse).
To his surprise, Woody finds himself in the middle of a great adventure with the fate of the Star Wars movie-making empire hanging in the balance.
We loved it. The production values leave a lot to be desired and it could do with a good edit, but we have not laughed so much in a long time! We were honoured to have the director, producers and Dave Prowse in attendance at the premiere.
