Long-lost film by ‘Star Wars’ art director could be offered for download
A long-lost film directed by Roger Christian, who served as art director for the first Star Wars movie, could soon be made available as a download, according to a comment given to Wired. Titled Black Angel, the 25-minute film tells the story of a medieval knight returning from the Crusades — it was originally shown before screenings of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back in Europe and Australia, but the negative was lost at some point following this 1980 debut. An archivist at Universal Studios rediscovered the film last year and informed Christian, who has been debating how to re-release it ever since.
