“Fanboys” opens this weekend, it takes place in 1998 where three friends, anxious for the release of “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace”, attempt to break into George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch to steal an advance print of the film. Their motivation, one of them is dying from cancer and wants to see it before he dies. The film is directed by Kyle Newman.
Some of the props and droids used in the movie were supplied by members of the R2 Builders Club, watch out for a R5 and a black imperial droid, oh and the Ewok head, that one belongs to Mike Senna.
With a bit of luck you might see droids at the various premiers around the country starting tomorrow in LA and in San Francisco on Wednesday.
