Blackstar Warrior is the first original short film to air on Brown Sugar, the subscription streaming service that dubs itself ‘just like Netflix, only blacker’.
Described as an original new blaxploitation-meets-Star Wars mashup starring Leonard Roberts (Drumline, Love Jones), Blackstar Warrior will debut on Brown Sugar from tomorrow, June 24th.
Set in a 1970s version of the future, the tongue-in-cheek film follows space detective Tyson Roderick who, in his quest to discover the truth behind his origins, stumbles into-and-must defeat a cult hellbent on taking over the galaxy.
The film was directed by Matt Haley and co-written by Simon Oré.
And here’s the trailer. A full series must be next, surely?
