With films like Fanboys being fueled entirely by the shared enthusiasm for the Star Wars franchise, the real life fanboys are now rallying around fanboys. It is a beautiful union even if it is a divided one.
So when International Friend Phil3000 tipped me off to this documentary I was more than excited. I love how both sides are presented here and an honest look at the Star Wars fandom is on its way.
The most impacting line I got from this trailer is this: The hatred that people claim they have for the new films proves how profoundly they love them.
But I also had to laugh at the animated bit of Lucas saying, “Star Wars is my story just like my house is my house. So if I want to paint my house even if EVERYONE else thinks it should be red, guess what? I’m gonna paint it Jar Jar.”
I really look forward to seeing this doc… and Fanboys.
