The long lost short film that had been viewed before "The Empire Strikes Back"

One of the big myths that came together all these years with the Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back had to do with the fate of the Black Angel short film that appeared before it.



It was directed by the art director of Star Wars, Roger Christian, and was partly funded by George Lucas. We're talking about a 25-minute story of a knight who returns from the Crusades and finds himself in a secret kingdom where he has to save a princess from a black knight! This film was shown before the Empire Strikes Back mainly because Lucas believed that it would be a nice contrast with his futuristic film.

Over the years we all thought that the film was lost, but a copy made its appearance last year and Christian is preparing again the release of the film through services such as Netflix or iTunes. Have a look!
