DVD Review: Jedi Junkies
Street Date: February 12, 2013
Available On: DVD
The Film: A documentary about a handful of “Star Wars” enthusiasts that have taken their love for the films and characters to the next level.
The Extras: Filmmaker Commentary, Deleted and Extended Scenes, “The Stars of Star Wars,” “Build Your Own Action Figure” and “The Cult of Slave Leia” featurettes.
Recommendation: The best thing about “Star Wars” fanatics is they display their fandom in so many different ways. Some collect toys, others create costumes and some take it to the next level by building a Millennium Falcon in their backyard. ”Jedi Junkies” is the celebration of a few fans that have taken their love to the extreme. It is unlikely to appeal to anyone who isn’t already a substantial “Star Wars” fan (or Olivia Munn stalker), but it is a charming labor of love.
