X-Ray Films is proud to present this SNEAK PEEK TEASER for our upcoming documentary, Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys. These 13 minutes and 24 seconds of preview footage were lovingly selected and randomly assembled for your viewing pleasure, and showcase a few of the collectors, historians, and toy designers that help bring this story to life. We hope you enjoy this small taste of the documentary, which will be available on DVD in January, 2014.
Please Note: This footage does not feature final graphics, music, or effects. The stuff you see here was constructed by the film's director, and he's smart enough to hire pros to do the final versions!
