Nearly two years ago, we reported on a documentary in the works called Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys. After years of hard work by team creating this unique and exciting project, the documentary has been released on DVD! The DVD costs $21 and can be purchased Here.
Check out a trailer for the film below. After the jump, you can find out a bit more on the film, as well as special features included with the DVD.
When Star Wars landed in the theaters, it introduced audiences to a galaxy filled with heroes and villains, robots and space ships, and a dizzying variety of alien life. But when the lights came up, they all disappeared… Unless you had all the toys. In which case, the adventure never had to end.
Like no toys before them, Star Wars toys were a phenomenon that swept the nation, transforming both the toy and movie industries, and ultimately creating a hobby that, 30 years later, still holds sway over its fans.
Plastic Galaxy is a documentary that explores the groundbreaking and breathtaking world of Star Wars toys. Through interviews with former Kenner employees, experts, authors, and collectors, it looks at the toys’ history, their influence, and the fond and fervent feelings they elicit today.
The DVD also includes more than 40 minutes of extras!
