Top Ten Reasons to Support Our Film:
Number 1: our director has a clear vision.
Number 2: wookies!!!
Number 3: Show stopping hits!!!
Number 4: cause your mom will make you.
Number 5: child prodigies
Number 6: lightsaber fights
Number 7: beep bop boop!
Number 8: in depth interviews
Number 9: brings back that nostalgic feeling
Number 10: eligible for best foreign language film
Remember if we don't reach our goal of $8,000 we don't get anything. It's all or nothing, friends.
Thank you to everyone who has faithfully shared the link and pledged to get us this far. You can always increase your pledge at any time as well.
May the force be with you.

The Story - It’s tough being a kid.
But not so long ago, in a city not too far away, a small band of rebels struggled to stage their musical interpretation of one of the greatest movies ever made : Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back. And this is their journey…
In 2009, students of all walks of life at the Arts & Learning Children’s Conservatory in Anaheim, CA set out to produce their own live musical parody version of The Empire Strikes Back, as interpreted through their young talents. Follow the young actors, artists, musicians (and a few supervising adults) as they audition, rehearse and perform their take on this classic film, released some twenty years before most of the actors were even born!
Follow the heartwarming story of six completely different students cast in this tiny production of Star Wars as they use their gifts to overcome one of life's biggest obstacles, adolescence.
The Plan - The film is all shot. We just need to finish up post production with professional editing so we can get the film out to festivals and other venues for the world to see and enjoy.
Your Investment - Your contribution will go directly to the outstanding costs for editing, sound mixing, color correction and other post-production needs. We don't want to get too techy here. We believe that with your pledge you will help us tell our unique story and bring a new hope to the galaxy.
