Black Angel (1977)

The Black Angel negative has been found.

The 25-minute film called Black Angel was the directorial debut of Star Wars art director Roger Christian, made with financial assistance from George Lucas. It centers on a knight returning from the Crusades who is transported to a mystical realm where he must rescue a princess from a black knight. “When George read the script, he felt it was very suitable to go with the Star Wars legacy,” Christian says. (It was shown in 1980 as a short in Europe and Australia, before Empire Strikes Back.)
