ELSTREE 1976 explores the lives of the actors and extras behind one of the most celebrated franchises in cinematic history, which spans from George Lucas’ original A NEW HOPE to J.J. Abrams’ recent record-breaking blockbuster THE FORCE AWAKENS

From the man behind film’s most iconic villain, to the actor whose character was completely cut from the final film, the documentary delves into the eccentric community these individuals have formed and how the Star Wars franchise continues to impact their lives decades later.

“An affectionate tribute to the individuals who played minor, supporting and background parts in the original STAR WARS movie, ELSTREE 1976 entertainingly explores the world of the character actor and bit-part player…a slice of enjoyable nostalgia, capturing a sense of life as silly, surprising, regretful and all too fleeting.”- Screen Daily

“Entertaining…this is a genial, humane project with obvious fan appeal.” – The Hollywood Reporter

“Without patronizing or condescending, it’s an examination of how fame can change us and haunt us…in that, it finds a way of proving valuable not just to fans, but to Force agnostics as well.” – IndieWire
