Star Wars documentary Elstree 1976 has finally been released in the UK.
Directed by Jon Spira, the film about the making of the original Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, looking at the lives of the people behind the masks and beneath the helmets.
“It was easy to hear the often-told stories of Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford and the production side of the process has been detailed to the minutiae,” said Spira on the film’s Kickstarter page, which funded the production. “I just wanted to know who the people were in the background. The ones you saw fleetingly for a second but are now preserved forever as part of our cultural heritage. What got them on to that film set? What are they doing right now?”
The movie screened in the UK at the London Film Festival in 2015, but has since not been available in the UK. Now, following a release in the US in May, the movie is available to buy and rent on DVD today, as well as stream online through pay-per-view platforms. That includes Amazon Instant Video, Wuaki.tv and also We Are Colony, where the film is available along with a bundle of exclusive digital special features.
