My friend Sam dropped a link on my Facebook page this afternoon with something quite unexpected – a new STAR WARS fan film called SUMMER ’78. Directed by J.C. Reifenberg, this 3½-minute gem captures childhood for many, myself included. The backyard movies… those Kenner action figures… the required Super 8mm camera. Funny enough, those same elements that landed me in a Target commercial for the new toys from THE FORCE AWAKENS (something tells me that’s gonna keep coming up for a bit). Thing is, this is an Easter-egg laden short that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated by a certain audience… one largely made up of kids that lived this the first time, and are sensing that “awakening” right now. Take a peek…

Ya know, speaking of STAR WARS, “backyard movies” and numeric titles… rumor has it that audiences will finally get to see 5-25-77 next year (with a possible very quick cameo by yours truly… maybe).
