Pink Five is a Star Wars fan film that made its debut on the Internet in 2002 and was written and directed by Trey Stokes[1] and stars Amy Earhart as Stacey (aka Pink Five), a fast-talking Valley Girl-type[1] dropped into an X-Wing cockpit during the Battle of Yavin, and presents familiar events and story points from Episode IV from a very different point of view.

Reception[edit]

The film has proven popular with Star Wars fans, winning rave reviews and the George Lucas Selects Award in the AtomFilms- and Lucasfilm-sponsored 2003 Official Star Wars Fan Film Awards, and even played at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival. In August 2010, Time magazine listed it as one of the Top 10 Star Wars fanfilms.[2]

Sequels and other appearances[edit]

Two sequels have been made: Pink Five Strikes Back (2004)[1] and Return of Pink Five (2006).[1]

Stacey appears in Timothy Zahn's 2007 Star Wars novel Allegiance, making her one of the few fan-created Star Wars characters ever to become part of the Star Wars Expanded Universe.

Stacey also has a brief cameo in the fan film Sith Apprentice, directed by John E. Hudgens.

Additionally, Stacey has now been immortalized on a Topps 30th Anniversary Trading Card. Card #117 ("Fan Films") details the exploits of the Valley Girl X-wing Pilot and her faithful droid, R2-DD.

An original Pink 5 poster also appears in The Star Wars Vault by Steve Sansweet.
