Coming back from Peterlee late at night I often slump in front of the tv wanting to unwind with something funny or light-hearted. Dissapointed with the choice I recently turned to the internet and found a couple of short films made by Star Wars fans which are quite well made and entertaining if you are familiar with the six Star Wars movies.
Sith Apprentice – This merges Star Wars with the American version of The Apprentice, the show where Donald Trump offers a well paid job to one succesful applicant after a series of tests, the main difference between the US and UK versions of The Apprentice is that the US version ends with live a show in a large theatre where the final decision is made.
Pink Five Strikes Back – This follows the journey of a girl who was a fighter pilot in Episode IV “A New Hope” in the battle against the Death Star, during that battle she chatted to Han Solo and now calls him her boyfriend. Having failed to listen properly in the pilots briefing she doesn’t know where to go and follows “new boy” Luke Skywalker to a strange planet where she meets Yoda. Her story fits nicely, if occasionally a little too obviously, around the real Episode V “The Empire Strikes Back”.
