Format: DVD
This DVD is a hodge-podge of footage of people waiting in line, brief interviews with the stars of the films, short cuts of sci-fi films and television shows, longer interviews with the series' fans, and a few other eccentricies. The narration of the DVD is really well done and covers up for some of the poor editing. However, other than the narration, that's about it. The "interviews" with the stars are really short and most were done waiting in line for movie premiers. The DVD also contrasts Star Wars to Star Trek and towards the end of the disc an attempt at comparing Ed Wood to George Lucas is made. Can you believe it, comparing PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE to STAR WARS! Unbelievable.
The only DVD extras are a series of short interviews with some of the stars of Star Wars. Most are with cast members from THE PHANTOM MENACE. However, there are a couple other interviews that took place over twenty years ago with THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. The best interview in the whole set is with Harrison Ford and Anthony Daniels; it is by far the most entertaining and interesting part of the DVD.
This is a DVD that only Star Wars fans can appreciate it. It's not too bad for a hodge-podge collection of film. However, some of the editing is poor and there isn't anything new or thought-provoking. Besides that, the DVD compares Ed Wood's films to STAR WARS. If it weren't for the good narration and the Harrison Ford/Anthony Daniels interview, the DVD would have received one star just for the Ed Wood comparison.

This DVD is an interesting collection of interviews and news footage. It's what you would expect. You will see a young Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill.
The DVD is kind of choppy in its presentation, but the interviews are interesting and the look into the past is very nostalgic. I didn't know what to expect when I bought this, but I wasn't totally disappointed.
The Star Wars fan will love it, but the general public...may get bored. There are no DVD Extras of note either.

This is a great DVD for avid STAR WARS collectors. It has interviews with the cast and crew of all four STAR WARS films including director George Lucas, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fischer, Liam Neeson, Harrison Ford, and many others. It also has interviews of celebrities who are fans of the STAR WARS films like actress Christina Ricci, William Shatner, and Sharon Stone, among others. The interviewer asks some intelligent questions to the stars of STAR WARS and the celebrity fans, but then there are also some non-intelligent questions that the interviewer asks. There are no sceen clips from any STAR WARS films because this was not made by Lucasfilms company. It also talks about other films that are like STAR WARS, such as STARK TREK. This DVD can only be really appreciated by hardcore STAR WARS fanatics. People who just sort of like STAR WARS but are not obsessed about the sega would probably care less for it since it would be a little less interesting for them. But since I am a huge STAR WARS fan, I really enjoyed this film. It gives a good insight on the films and the people who were apart of them. Highly recommended for avid STAR WARS fans only.

After viewing 'The Unauthorized Star Wars Story' I had very low expectations for this selection. Surprisingly, the content was pretty good. The narration was sound, the interviews were well mixed, and the content is generous. If I had any real complaints, it would be that this DVD concentrates a bit too much on non-Star Wars subject matter.
Overall? If you are a sci-fi fan pick it up.

I don't know what these naysayers are whining about, it's cool! I am an avid collector of Star Wars Quicktime clips, and have recorded tons from ET, Access Hollywood and others. I hadn't seen ANY of these interviews! I t was cool. The DVD also offers uninterrupted interviews in their entirety (only about 5-7 minutes long each, but hey).

While this DVD isn't the best documentary I've seen, it is still very entertaining. I guess the appealing thing about it is that it isn't just a compilation of old, overseen interviews. It takes you to the opening screening of A New Hope: Special Edition, and interviews well known actors, as well as the stars of the Trilogy, on what Star Wars means to them. This is worth the price alone.

While this dvd is by no means near any official release, it is a comprehensive recollection of interviews that range from 1980 to 1999 with stars as George Lucas himself, Sam Jackson and Carrie Fisher among others. The dvd also includes stories about Episode I premiere, merchandising, special effects and more. in a scale of 5 stars I'd give 3 to the quality of the video image and 4 to the sound. In all, an enjoyable experiencie if you're a fan, if not, you may be a little dissapointed by the old interviews and the low quality image.
