At the end of last month we got the first word on Albert Pyun’s upcoming Star Warfare Rangers and the Cyborg Witch of Endor, and now a new trailer for the film has arrived along with an expanded synopsis.
The upcoming movie stars Ellie Church, Brad Thornton, Mayling Ng, Paul Gunn, Ashley Campbell, Glenn Maynard, Kati Salowsky, Travis Krauss, and Jax Scott and introduces 18-year-old actress Cat Cakmis as Leah C6. Pyun directs from a script co-written by himself and Cynthia Curnan. The producers include Curnan, Michael Su, and Tony Riparetti. The plan is to wrap up filming in Las Vegas in December and then move to China for the final part of the shoot.
A graphic novel based on Star Warfare Rangers and the Cyborg Witch of Endor will be issued by Alchemy Comics with both the comic and the film anticipated to be released in May 2016.
The 7th Empress (CHURCH) of the Imperial Empire is faced with a rebellion by the edge of the universe races who believe in mysticism and dark forces. The rebels are led by a powerful Aym Mystic named Kindo-Ker (MAYNARD), who believes he was awakened (reincarnated) to destroy the Imperial Empire and bring life to the darker sides of mysticism.
The Empress assembles an elite team of soldiers, the Star Warfare Rangers, on the planet of Endor. The special ops team is led by Captain “Starkiller” Merin (THORNTON), and the team includes Lt. Li-Lin Lucas (NG), CWO Kelli Kurtz (SALOWSKY), CWO Lani McCallum (SCOTT), Corporal Robin Watts (CAMPBELL), and two sniper specialists, Sgt. Lobo Katz (GUNN) and Corporal Willard McQuarrie (KRAUSS). The Rangers are to find and rescue a teenage Cyborg (CAKMIS), who the Empress believes can stop the rebellion.
Kindo-Ker is assisted by an creature assassin named Maanu-agu (FULVIA SANTONI) and a warrior mutated by the dark forces of Hell, Anak-Mindo (NATHAN FERRIER). The film opens a 100 years after the events in the film, and we are led into the story by the 8th Empress of the Imperial Empire (TOMMIE VEGAS).
