Growing up as a kid in the 70’s I loved Star Wars and I acted out the parts with my friends in the neighborhood and bought all the action figures and toys too.
If I only knew blowing up my action figures with firecrackers would dimish their value, I might have saved a few. But sadly, all those Kenner toys got wrecked in the pool, the sand, the dirt and with TNT. Plus I think a few are still buried in my back yard in some holes only to be found by someone years from now.
Somehow, he got access to some pretty amazing scenes, audios and insights to how the first Star Wars movie was made, so he put together this incredible 14 part “filmumentary” as he would call it, so delight fans and show us the movie, plus how it was made all at the same time.
For fanboys and fangirls, you’ll probably spend two hours, like I did last night, watching all 14 videos.
For the love of the game, Jambe, did everything, with no compensation or permission from George Lucas.He spent his own money and time, hoping people would find as much joy in the motion picture, as he did.
Jambe also happened to make two other filmumentaries about the other 2 Star Wars movies, called, Building Empire and Returning to Jedi.
George Lucas would be an IDIOT if he does not reach out to Jambe and ask HIM permission to use his film to put into the soon to be released Blu-Ray version of the film. It’s better than any other documentaries out there.
I’ve got all 14 parts posted here for those who want to relive and see the first movie in all it’s fun with insights, not ever seen before. For fans, you’ll love knowing how this movie got made, and how it almost never got finished.
The ending is classic too, where you hear commentary from George Lucas talk about how he re-wrote his contract, and the studio did not care or pay attention to it… smart move George… smart move! 🙂
