The latest in a series of animated shorts from Spite Your Face Productions, Star Wars: The Han Solo Affair offers a lighter version of events in The Empire Strikes Back, courtesy of everyone’s favourite plastic yellow men. You can watch the movie, which is hosted on the official LEGO site at www.lego.com/studios or read about the production on the official Spite Your Face site at www.spiteyourface.com/hansolo/index
The film is directed and animated by UK based animation and film production company Spite Your Face, and features a stunning original score by American composer Jason Graves (www.jasongraves.com). Spite Your Face Productions’ previous exploits with animated LEGO men have included promotional work for Sam Raimi’s upcoming Spiderman, an award winning ‘remake’ of 2001: A Space Odyssey and a critically acclaimed reworking of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail in LEGO, which has received praise from both Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones, can be seen on the Monty Python and the Holy Grail: Special Edition DVD from Columbia Tristar, as well as the official LEGO site.
It’s not all fun with toys though! Spite Your Face Productions work in just about any medium you can think of, and some you can’t. They are available for promotional films, music videos and animations of all shapes and sizes.
