Watch Black Angel, the Lost Fantasy Film That Played With Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in Theaters

In certain locations, a short film called Black Angel—directed by Star Wars art director Roger Christian—ran before theatrical showings of The Empire Strikes Back way back in 1980. Since then, it’s been thought lost to time, but it was discovered again back in 2012 and is now finally online for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

…For now. The Hollywood Reporter says the film has played two festivals and will be available online free only for the rest of this month. It’s presented with an exclusive intro from Christian himself, and if you want to learn even more about the movie, you can head over to its website.
