Photos: Georgia WR Films Own ‘Star Wars’ Video
Forget the highly anticipated J.J. Abrams reboot of Star Wars. We’re dying to see how Georgia WR Chris Conley’s take on the beloved sci-fi series turns out when it premieres in April.
Conley - who had 45 receptions and four touchdowns for the Bulldogs in 2013 - put out a casting call last November for anyone and everyone willing to help him film a light saber battle. As evidenced by the photos below, it recently morphed into something much bigger, complete with storm troopers and a cameo from head coach Mark Richt.
“My brother and I got into the games and into the some of the Star Wars history outside of the movies and I’ve just been a fan of it ever since,” Conley told Dog Bytes in December. “I’ve been a big guy who prides myself on remaining who I am regardless of who I’m around or how old I get. It’s something that I like and regardless of what people tell me, if it’s frowned upon or not. It’s me.”
May the Force be with you, Chris Conley.
