New ‘Star Wars’ Series To Screen at Star Wars Celebration V?
Fans in attendance at the fifth annual Star Wars Celebration got a sweet and soulful treat, when George Jefferson Lucas debuted the upcoming BET series, BlackStar Warriors. The series, which follows the misadventures of Lando Calrissian and his honky partner Han Solo (and some tall whiny dog-man) as they (mainly Lando) deal with ‘the Man”.
After the series trailer debuted to a packed audience, the fans erupted in acceptance. “Finally, a brother gets the spotlight!” acclaimed one fan, known to many as ‘Hooper X’. Others in attendance had chimed in as well. “It’s good to know, in this era of new equality, that the Black Man can finally get his geek on.” said the Reverend Al Sharpton, who showed up for the even shortly after hearing of its existence. He went on to say “…While I don’t know what this ‘Star Wars’ hoopla is about, I’m personally taking credit for the expansion of this once all white universe to better include the Black Man.” Later, the Reverend was screened the original trilogy, and has since taken back his comments.
While we know all of you around the country may not have been able to make it out to Celebration V, we here at ComicMix wanted to treat you to the trailer anyways. So, lean your chair back real low… pour yourself some Courvoisier and enjoy the (space)funk.
Editor’s note: No, this didn’t happen at Celebration today, it’s not a real show, and we’re amazed you thought so. Sheeeesh.
