Campaign Launches To Fund A Full Feature Version Of ‘Black Angel’

The original film was written by 'Star Wars' Set Designer Roger Christian, who pitched the script to George Lucas.

Back in the early 1980s a short film titled ‘Black Angel’ was released in as a short feature that played prior to ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ during that films initial release back in 1981.

Now some of the people behind the movie are looking for help raise funds to create a feature length version of the short form film, which ran for 25 minutes.

The original film was written by ‘Star Wars’ Set Designer Roger Christian, who pitched the script to George Lucas. Lucas liked the film and provided the resources for Roger to make it.

The film played in front of ‘Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back’ screenings in England, Scotland and Australia. It went on to inspire a host of fantasy cinema classics, from Star Wars itself to John Boorman’s Excalibur. And then it was lost.

The film was found last year and enjoyed a fantastic reception when it was released on Youtube.

Now plans are afoot to make it into a full movie of between 90 minutes to 2 hours, but the films creators need your help and to that end have set up an indiegogo page for your pledges.

For those that do not know. The film follows a knight as he journeys deep into the dark underworld with the daughter of a rival king, to meet the face of evil itself and fight the Black Angel in combat. Full of drama, action and heroism, pure light is pitted against eternal darkness and damnation. The films action is visceral and the creators aim to emulate the same style of action if they are able to raise the funds that are needed.
