Movie Info

Take a look behind the hype to find out the true meaning of fandom as legions of Star Wars devotees line up for the first new film in the popular sci-fi series in sixteen years in this documentary from filmmaker Dennis Przyara. It was April 7, 1999 and the announcement that the Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace would be opening in a mere forty-two days set the sci-fi community ablaze. As ravenous fans line up on sidewalks more than a month before the film opens to ensure their admission on opening day, Dennis Przyara turns his lens towards the action to capture all the madness and mayhem of Star Wars mania. From the fan who modified her car to resemble an X-wing fighter to a rocking Boba Fett and a group of high schoolers staging a musical based on the series, this look at the George Lucas phenomenon and the fans who can't get enough is a true testament to the unwavering power of the force. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Starwoids


I was not impressed. Starwoids should not be comparing itself the the film Trekkies. It sets itself up for disapointment. I am a Star Wars lover but found the documentary Trekkies absolutely hilarious. It highlights the most amazingly interesting people and takes you through a lifestyle that even if you think geeks are silly, you can't help but respect. This documentary is about standing in a line to see Phantom Menace, and is kind of like watching a dramatic soap-opera.

A movie about Star Wars nerds waiting in line for Episode I. This movie might be better than the one they waited in line to see. zing!
