STAR WARS MIXTAPE -created by Marcus Herring and Tom Fitzgerald for Cinefamily TV (1h34)

Cinefamily Mixtapes are the signature, original, long-form video montages of found footage madness created by The Cinefamily in Los Angeles. They’ll blow your mind, bring a smile to your face, renew or destroy your faith in humanity, may or may not be hazardous to your health – and just might change your life.

The Cinefamily’s crack team of programmers have searched through every corner of the galaxy and the darkest parts of the internet, to find the most brain frying tributes, rip offs, cross promotions gone wrong, and more from the last 40 years of Star Wars. An educational and hilarious, not-to-be-missed tribute to Star Wars.

10pm
