In celebration of the 35th anniversary today of the release of original Star Wars, Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes have premiered the film Hughes The Force on their SModcast Internet Television (S.I.T.).
The film, directed, written, and produced by Producer by J.C. Reifenberg, is inspired by Star Wars, as well as all those 1980’s John Hughes movies, like The Breakfast Club and Weird Science.
