May the 4th (and these hidden gems) be with you!

May the 4th be with you! 

Certainly the global culture has been indelibly shaped by the mythology that is both the stories of Star Wars and the stories that have changed our entertainment experience because of Star Wars. 

With that, we’ve all seen Star Wars, but TheArchive wants to know if we've all seen these hidden gems below that are in some way connected to, derived from, inspired by, or featured cast from Star Wars? 

These ARE the movies you are looking for. 

See how we did that? 

So prepare for hyperspace as we take you into galaxies you would have never known were so close:

The Stream

In the summer of 1981, a tragedy of epic proportions sends five friends on an epic adventure. All they have to do is follow the stream to their destination and back. With Rainn Wilson, Mario Lopez, Kelly Rutherford... what could possibly go wrong? 


In the year 3034: humans have become a race of emotionless drones bent on destroying all other species in the galaxy. The Earth's Mightiest Ship, The Dreadnaught Nemesis, embarks on a mission to destroy their latest enemy: The Reptids, an alien race who plan to travel back in time to the 21st century and use a weapon that will enhance human emotions, hoping to change mankind’s destructive tendencies. Fun fact: Jeremy Bulloch in Starhyke played Boba Fett in Star Wars Episodes V and VI. He's an OG Mandalorian!

Star Games

Even Greydon Clark played in the genre. Forced from his planet by an alien takeover, a young prince takes intergalactic flight. He finds refuge on Earth and befriends a boy named Brian. Together, they fight for the freedom of the galaxy.

Star Wars vs. Star Trek

When Star Trek premiered on television in 1966, it dominated the world of sci-fi--that is, until Star Wars hit theaters in 1977. Since then, the two franchises have battled for pop culture dominance.
