Black Angel is a short movie by Roger Christian which was attached to screenings of The Empire Strikes Back in Europe and Australia. Steven Spielberg said it was “one of the most enigmatic films he’d ever seen.” Then all copies of the short film were lost until an archivist at Universal Studios surprisingly found a negative in December 2011.
The short movie is about a knight who returns from the Crusades, only to be transported to a fantasy world to rescue a princess.
Christian hopes to release the short film this year, “possibly through iTunes or Netflix and maybe even as part of a DVD re-release of ‘The Empire Strikes Back.’ ”
Here is a clip of the movie.
