So it is said in Wired magazine that Black Angel is a part of the Star Wars Universe, as it was made by a key person behind Empire Strikes Back and has used many effects and tech stuff that was incorporated into Empire, and was funded by George Lucas. The film itself is a 25 minute sory of a knight returning from the crusades and its transported to a mystical realm where he must rescue a Princess from a Black Knight. The article states that this short inspired Arthurian movies from Excalibur to Legend, but it was only shown in 1980 in Europe and Austrilia before Empire was shown in theaters, not in the USA as it was intended along with said Star Wars film.
Black Angel was never released in VHS much less in DVD, and it was presumable lost until Director Roger Christian (the man behind the film) got contacted by Universal Studios and found the original negative in a tin.
"I wrote back, 'you just made my Christmas for the last 20 years" Christian recalls telling them in gratitude.
Christian debates the way to distribute his lost film would be via download online, but states it would be neat if it could be shown as a theatrical realease along with Empire, even if it means fans having to watch it over again.
Has anyone got any input about Black Angel or heard anything from it until now?
