Original Empire Strikes Back short “Black Angel” is on iTunes!

This is something I have always wanted to see! When The Empire Strikes Back was released in theaters in Europe, it had a short film attached to it call Black Angel. The film was lost to time, until now. Those who remember it say it played wonderfully with Empire tonally speaking. I suggest grabbing a copy and then watching Empire because…why not?

The mythological drama follows a Knight returning from the wars to find his land destroyed and his family dead from a great sickness. Returning to the wars with nothing to live for, he falls into a river and is dragged down by the weight of his armour. At the last breath, he manages to pull off his armoured helmet. Swimming to the surface he ascends into a strange land where he meets a maiden bound to the Black Angel. He vows to save her and fulfil his Knights quest to rescue a maiden. In a fight to the death he confronts the Black Angel, a mysterious figure, an angel of death. Especially commissioned by George Lucas to accompany STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK on its world release wherever a short film was programmed. The 25min medieval fantasy was written and directed by Roger Christian.”
