A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, George Lucas commissioned a short film to be paired with 'The Empire Strikes Back' in theaters. That film was the medieval fantasy 'Black Angel' and it was directed by Roger Christian, the acclaimed production designer who won an Oscar for his work on the original 'Star Wars.' And then theaters stopped playing shorts before features and 'Black Angel' vanished, never to be seen again ... or so everyone thought.

'Star Wars: Episode 7' is scheduled to begin filming in May (just about two-and-a-half months from now), so you'd think casting announcements are imminent.

The latest rumor has it that the star of one of this year's biggest movies - 'Transformers 4' - will be the star of one of next year's biggest movies, 'Star Wars: Episode 7'.
