Star Wars revolutionized the way Sci-Fi and other special effects movies were made, but what would the movie have been like if it had been created in the 1950’s? That’s the question Ivan Guerrero attempts to answer with his 1950’s pre-make of the movie.
Before Star Wars fans go freaking out that “Wookie” is spelled as “Wookee” Ivan points out that in an original script treatment for the movie the word Wookie was spelled with his alternative.
See the movie after the break.
Also be sure to notice the “amazing” 3D special effects which Guerrero would have implemented for his 1950’s version.
At the time of this post, the movie is nearing 200,000 views, proving once again that Star Wars fans would have loved this series regardless of when it came out, or perhaps we all just want to see how badly the movie could have been destroyed if filmed during an earlier time.
Movies that contributed to the “premake” include:
Flash Gordon (Deadline at Noon, Conquers the Universe), The Phantom Planet, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Invasion of the Animal People, Man Beast, Lunar Walker, Golden Bat (Ogon Batto), The Mysterians, Captain Midnight, First Spaceship on Venus, The Flying Saucer, The Fighting Devil Dogs, The Outer Limits (Second Chance, Soldier, I Robot, The Sixth Finger), Things to Come, Space Patrol, Atragon, Terror in the Midnight Sun, Forbidden Planet, Rocketship X-M, Latitude Zero, Space Flight, Metropolis, The Jetsons, Devil Girl From Mars, Tobor the Great, The Alligator People, The Return of the Fly, Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas, Starman (Attack from Space), Marvel Super Heroes (Iron Man), The Cyclops, The Sea Hawk, Kings Row, Mahler Symphony No. 6, Gustav Hoists The Planets (Mars), and The Empire Strikes Back Radio Drama
