Description: It’s tough being a kid. Especially when you’re a wookiee with two left feet and a changing voice. But not so long ago, in a city not too far away, kids from all walks of life struggled to audition, rehearse and perform their own live musical parody of STAR WARS, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.
JEDI JUNIOR HIGH is a comedic, slice of life documentary filmed in Orange County, California. In the film we follow a group of aspiring adolescent actors as they perform a musical parody of STAR WARS. Our story is really about that moment in every tween’s life when you have no idea who you are, what you’re doing and everything is awkward. Now add a dash of singing, unrequited crushes and repeat. The film is shot in a traditional, nonfiction follow style, with interviews from the characters and ends with a live stage performance.
