Austin Chronicle; Backyard Star Wars

How many Star Wars films are there? Seven? You're wrong. Even add in the two Ewok films, and you're still not close. There are hundreds of Star Wars films, it's just that most of them are made by fans. For May the Fourth, aka Star Wars Day, the Other Worlds Austin festival is celebrating this off-brand creativity.
