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.
