Watch: "The Empire Strikes Door (A Star Wars Mystery)"

By: Dominic Jones

For the past few years our pal Jamie Stangroom has been on a mission to discover the identity of the stormtrooper who bumped their head in a scene in Star Wars: A New Hope.  Now, he's compiled the evidence and produced his results in the form of the new documentary, The Empire Strikes Door, which you can watch now on YouTube.

In the film, Stangroom presents the evidence surrounding the claims of the three actors who all say they were the infamous stormtrooper.  This includes interviews and polygraph tests with two of the three men, with the third refusing to participate and then passing away.  The evidence was then presented to a jury consisting of filmmaker Kevin Smith, Star Wars actors Ahmed Best and Greg Grunberg, wrestlers Rich Ward, and Chris Jericho, and content creators from the Star Wars community (myself included). 

Check out the doc below,
