Decades Old Film By Star Wars’ Art Director May Be Up For Download Soon

Back in the 1980s, the art director of the first Star Wars movie, Roger Christian, created a 25-minute film. The film was screened together with Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back back then. But then its negative was lost and it never resurfaced. Now, a copy of the film has been found out again and Christian intends to re-release it.


The Black Angel

The copy of the film was found by an archivist at Universal Studios. After its 1980 debut, the film has never been screened again, so that puts a certain vintage value into it. Titled ‘Black Angel’, the film is about a knight from the medieval ages who is shown to be returning from the Crusades.

Naturally, Roger Christian is quite happy at having re-found the movie and intends to release it. How does he intend to do so, is unclear yet. While he wants to screen it in a cinema yet again, he also admits that putting it up as a downloadable file is a better option.

According to Christian, “I think it would be great to see it in a cinema again on a program with Empire Strikes Back. That’s how it was intended to be seen.”

We do hope that he decides in favor of a downloadable version since that will be able to attract a far greater number of viewers. Especially, the Star Wars fans would be very excited to lay their eyes on another of Christian’s cinematic creations.
