Lost and Found: ‘Star Wars’ Pre-Show Short Film ‘Black Angel’ | Yahoo Movies – Yahoo Movies


By: Bryan Enk Well, here’s a hot-ticket panel we’ll probably be seeing at “Star Wars” Celebration next year. A long time ago, in our own galaxy, there were short films screened before features. One such short film, a 25-minute fantasy epic called “Black Angel,” was shown before certain overseas prints of “Star Wars: Episode V — The Empire Strikes Back” (1980). And then, inexplicably, it was gone, with no trace of a negative or bootleg VHS copy to be found. Lost to []

Revealed: Star Wars Originally Had Female X-Wing Pilots

No, that was Clone Wars. Were any of the Jawas female? Clearly George Lucas wasn’t going out of his way to be politically correct back in 1977 when he took audiences to a galaxy far, far away for the initial Star Wars.

Could The Lord Of The Rings Be Re-Released In 3D? Peter Jackson Seems To Think So


By: Katey Rich This weekend’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be the first opportunity most have to see the world of Middle Earth in 3D– and depending on which screening you choose, you could see it in the ultra-sharp, fairly controversial 48 frames per second. But anyone watching the way Hollywood has worked over the last year or two could probably guess that, at some point, we’ll be seeing the original Lord of the Rings trilogy in 3D as well. After []
