Fan Film: Summer ’78

"Summer ’78" directed by J.C. Reifenberg

This nostalgia inducing fan film will help tide you over until the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.  It centers around a young boy, played by Hunter Leon, a host of the original Kenner Star Wars action figures, and whole lot of imagination.  Despite a "continuity error" (Kenner’s Millennium Falcon toy didn’t actually debut until 1979), it perfectly captures the feeling of being a Star Wars fan in the late seventies.  The short film was directed by J.C. Reifenberg (Hughes the Force) and produced by James Arnold Taylor, the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi on The Clone Wars and Rebels.
"“Summer ’78” is a short film about the power of imagination. Watch as a young boy during the late 70s plays with his favorite Star Wars toys and learn how his simple, but elaborate front yard adventures inspire his future."
