Trey Stokes and Amy Earhart, creators of the celebrated Pink Five fanfilm series, have announced a Kickstarter project to fund the the long-awaited Final Chapter of the saga.
The original Pink Five won the George Lucas Selects award in Lucasfilm's Official Star Wars Fan Film awards - its sequel, Pink Five Strikes Back won the Audience Choice Award the following year. The series garnered millions of views on Atom.com and became such a phenomenon that the character of "Stacey" was featured on an official Star Wars trading card. Stacey even made the transition from fanon to canon when she made an appearance in Timothy Zahn's novel Allegiance.
If Stokes and Earhart successfully reach their funding goal on September 5th, they plan to release the Final Chapter on January 1, 2013. The previous episode ended on a cliffhanger, with Stacey headed for the Death Star during the Battle of Endor - so the Final Chapter is likely to be an explosive end to the beloved series.
