|Saving Star Wars|
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 (David 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.
Behind the scenesEdit
The title Saving Star Wars was based on Saving Private Ryan, a World War II film directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Hanks and Matt Damon. The fan film, shot in Indiana, featured David Prowse as a member of the cast; Prowse is famous for playing Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy.
