When George Lucas was producing The Empire Strikes Back he commissioned Roger Christian to write and direct a short film called Black Angel to run in front of the Star Wars sequel in the UK, Australia, and Scandinavia.
Christian was the Oscar-winning art director on Star Wars and Lucas was keen to do this for him, however, the negative was lost and never made it to the front of the movie.
But now it has been found and restored and is here for your viewing pleasure.
It’s certainly a child of its time but an enjoyable little oddity and well worth a look for Star Wars and movie fans alike.
Black Angel stars Tony Vogel as Sir Maddox.
