Jedi Junkies Fan Film

Posted By TFN on May 5, 2010

Our very good pal (and of course director of Fanboys) Kyle Newman sends us the following announcement regarding a new feature-length Star Wars fan documentary entitled Jedi Junkies that will be debuting on May 20th:

Dailymotion to Host Exclusive JEDI JUNKIES Star Wars Documentary Film Premiere

Feature-length documentary to be available for on-demand viewing, free of charge, beginning Thursday May 20, 2010

NEW YORK, NY - Dailymotion, one of the world's largest video entertainment sites, announced today that it has obtained exclusive rights to premiere Jedi Junkies. The feature-length, documentary about Star Wars fans will be available for viewing on Dailymotion for 7 days beginning May 20, 2010.

Jedi Junkies is a one-of-a-kind, feature film about the world's most dedicated Star Wars fans. From lightsaber wielding martial arts academies to a filmmaker who built the world's only life-size Millennium Falcon, from a Monster Garage-esque sculptor whose professional livelihood is building custom lightsabers to metal-bikini wearing dancers who embody Slave Leia, the film offers viewers a rare glimpse into rabid fans' personal and professional self expression that borders on obsession.

The film also gives viewers the perspective of celebrity insiders including G4's Attack of the Show host Olivia Munn, Phantom Menace actor Ray Park (Darth Maul), Celebrity Fit Club's Dr. Linda Papodopolis and Blair Witch Project director Ed Sanchez.

A film made by Star Wars fans, for Star Wars fans, Jedi Junkies will be released for no-charge, on-demand viewing in its entirety on Dailymotion for one week only, May 20th to the 26th. The film will also be available for rental and purchase through www.JediJunkies.com and on a variety of major digital platforms in the coming weeks through digital distributor, New Video.
