In the riotous new road movie Fanboys, a group of friends who are avid Star Wars fans travel west to see the Holly Grail of all sci-fi movies Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. The year is 1999 and for these death star dorks, the Star Wars films are more than just movies; they are a way of life. After one of the group becomes terminally ill, it is nothing short of a moral imperative that the friends break into George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch to watch the seminal sci-fi picture together before its release. Enlisting the help of an estranged friend, who has traded in his Darth Vader mask for a proper day job, the adventure lays way to some extremely funny situations, including an outrageous brawl with some hard-core Trekkies. We recently met up with the Fanboys behind this noble quest for a chat about their hilarious adventure.
