A Kickstarter campaign has begun to raise funds for Jedi Camp, a web series that follows kids as they go to a special summer camp to learn the ways of the force. Get the details after the break.
The project, created by FirstGlance Films, is a six episode web series that stars various unknown kids, Leah Cevoli (Robot Chicken), and Camden Toy (Buffy the Vampire Slayer). You can learn more about the project at their Kickstarter page, official website, and the video below.
As described on the site, the project deals with the topic of bullying:
What makes this project different from many Star Wars Fan films is this web series deals with the issue of bullying and how a group of young children deal with the implications of bullying. We believe using Star Wars as a theme will entice both adults and kids to watch a series with this important message. If you or a loved one were ever bullied growing up, this project is one you should help fund.
As of the writing of this post, only $615 of the $8,500 goal has been met, so if you want to support the series, get your pledges in by March 5th.
