Since people really liked the YouTube/Vimeo/etc. finds for Original Trilogy making-ofs, documentaries, promos, etc. thread and have been sharing lots of interesting videos there, I figured it made sense to start a similar thread dedicated to the more generalized Star Wars documentaries out there. F.ex. documentaries or featurettes focused on Star Wars as a pop-culture phenomenon, or bios on the cast and filmmakers, etc.
- When adding a link to a video, please add a title and/or description so that we don’t have to click on it to find out what it is. Any additional info would be appreciated as well, like f.ex. an IMDB page link, article links, or just a simple blurb. You can also add a photo (screenshot, poster, etc.).
- Fan-made videos can be posted provided they are of reasonably good quality.
- Please don’t post any reviews or blatant opinion-pieces.
- Mockumentaries are ok as long as they are clearly labeled as such.
NOTE: This thread is NOT meant to be for making ofs, BTS footage, etc. If you want to share videos like that please post them on the other thread (linked above). There will of course be BTS stuff included in a lot of these videos, but something like f.ex. “The Making of The Empire Strikes Back” by Michel Parbot should not be shared here.
