'Star Wars' toys get their own movie
We can only hope that George Lucas never gets his hands on this one.
This is a trailer for "Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys," a documentary that celebrates the action figures, play sets, space ships, and props we grew up with as kids - and still collect today. Through interviews with collectors, historians, former Kenner and Hasbro employees, and others, the film explores their history, influence, and continued impact on pop culture.
The documentary's creator is trying to raise funds for his film through Kickstarter and is planning to release it on DVD on Aug. 23.
