Fan made video shows ‘Star Wars’ as a Blacksploitation film

Personally I’m a fan of those old films, and the recent Black Dynamite had me rolling on the floor.  In fact the first short film I made in college was in the same style as the old black exploitation films.  So when I stumbled across this video today, I just knew I had to share it.

Blackstar Warrior is a trailer for a film (that’s unfortunately not real) set in the Star Wars universe, and chronicles the adventures of Lando Calrissian.  The video nails the genre right on the head, from the narrator to even the quality of the picture.  The whole film feels like it was pulled straight out of that time period.

It’s hilarious, irreverent, and just hits all of the right buttons.  Who knows, maybe if this becomes popular enough, the creator will decide to make the full film.
