A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…
Well, not really that long ago. In December 2013, some talented friends got together with a fun idea, “Let’s make a Stars Wars parody, in the style of a Disney musical!” And so was born “Star Wars: The Musical!” Now, many months later, filming is complete and they want to share it with us all at the Star Wars: The Musical Wrap Party! And you can be there!
Mingle with the cast and crew of the film and see the finished film in its entirety! Tickets are just $15 online ($20 at the door). Proceeds will be donated to Fandom Charities, Inc, a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. NOTE: Whedonopolis.com is a project of Fandom Charities, Inc.
At the party, you will enjoy complimentary drinks and desserts, a Disney sing-a-long, lead by composer George Shaw and Chrissa Villanueva, and a live perfornance by singer-songwriter Priska. And enter their drawing to win cool prizes!
You can purchase your tickets to the Star Wars: The Musical Wrap Party HERE.
As a pure passion project and fan film, this project came together thanks to so many dedicated fans who donated their time to make this happen. It began a year and a half ago following the news of Disney’s purchase of Star Wars, with the simple question of what if Disney made Star Wars a musical? So after 6 months of writing/producing the music, 6 months of pre-production, 5 days of production, and another 7 months of post-production, we are all just eager to finally share it with friends, family, and audiences.
Composer George Shaw received over 100 million views in his collaborations with the “Top 100” YouTube Personalities including NigaHiga, Kevjumba, Wong Fu Productions, Michelle Phan, Jeremy Lin, and New Media Artists David Choi, Clara C, and Jason Chen. His thousands of followers look forward to his ongoing series of orchestral adaptations of popular video games and films.
Filmmaker Jeffrey Chin has been honored on ABC’s Good Morning America for his research on Asian American history and recently directed a 30-minute short entitled “Lil Tokyo Reporter” starring Academy Award-Winner Chris Tashima. His film received over 18 awards and will be traveling internationally to Asia this summer, both in Japan and at the US Consulate in South Korea. He is currently at USC Graduate School specializing in Directing and Visual Effects.
