The Empire Strikes Back ’50s Premake!

Bonnie Burton | May 19, 2010

We all know that filmmaker George Lucas was influenced by the old sci-fi serials of his childhood when he made the Star Wars films. But now you can see how much those shows really did make their mark with this fan-made tribute to The Empire Strikes Back using old film footage. Bravo!

Let’s turn back the clock, shall we? Back to a distant time in an alternate universe far, far away… The 50s! It was a simpler age of 3-D movies, and robots named Robby, Gort, and Tobor. A hidden gem of this period in cinema is a little film called The Empire Strikes Back, the second chapter in a planned three-part epic science fiction trilogy.

While the preceding and succeeding episodes were never actually produced due to budgetary constraints, Empire shines as an example of 1950s 3-D space opera. The re-release of this trailer coincides with the 60th anniversary of this amazing film.
