The “big buzz” this week at the box office is the release of the long-awaited film Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Fans all over the world are selling out theaters, buying memorabilia and re-watching past films to prepare. Though, some fans have taken the excitement to a new level by creating fan films surrounding the Star Wars lore. We were joined on Midday by cast and crew of Star Wars: The Distant Echo — a fan film following the journey of all the traditional characters, but with an alternative storyline derived from the original Lucasfilm narrative (before the franchise was purchased by Disney).
