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 (a.k.a. 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.[citation needed] 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] The complete Pink Five Saga was released on Amazon Video in July 2016.

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, R5-DD.

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