Star Wars: The Emperor's New Clones

The Emperor's New Clones (often abbreviated to TENCLO) is a full length feature film recreating the story of Star Wars Episode III. It was created by Backyard Productions, a British amateur film production company founded by Darren Scales, Mark Scales and Edwin Hollingsbee. According to the BBC report, filming was carried out in a garage studio, and the total production budget was approximately £3000. In fact, filming took place at RAF Waddington - only the post-production was done in the garage studio. The film was premiered at Whittle Hall, RAF Cranwell on 9 September 2006. The complete DVD is available as a BitTorrent download. The name is a pun on "The Emperor's New Clothes".

The group have previously released several films: Geriatric Park (a parody of Jurassic Park, completed in 1994), Batman Returns Forever (a parody of Batman Returns and Batman Forever, completed in 1995), Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Backyard (a parody alternative to Star Wars Episode II inspired by the release of Star Wars Episode I and completed in 2000), and Doom Raiders (a parody of Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider, filmed in Cyprus and completed in 2002).
