• How ‘Star Wars’ Collectibles Changed the Movie Industry Forever

      When “Star Wars” premiered on May 25, 1977, it changed the movie industry in ways few could have foreseen. Accompanying its release were toys that would become coveted collectors items still in demand to this day. Filmmaker Brian Stillman hopes to reveal this episode of history with “Plastic Galaxy,” an upcoming documentary on “Star Wars” toys.



      “I wanted to do a movie on the value of these toys—how were these toys were culturally influential,” Stillman said. “Also why they remain popular. What is it about these toys that keeps the brand alive?”

      “It’s not so much that I see significance in them—it’s that they are, in fact, surpassingly significant,” he said.

      To capture the history around “Star Wars” toys, Stillman has not only tracked down some of the top collectors, but also the people who have followed them from the beginning: employees of Kenner, the toymaker; experts; authors; and others.
