Fanboys Shows You How The Dark Lord Likes His Snacks

A special on the fan's struggle to put the cancer kid back into Fanboys, after Weinstein Company deemed him too depressing, showcases a few new clips from to get you excited about the February release.

A little featurette from Reelz describing the struggle between Weinstein and Fanboys gives us another look inside the night life of a Fanboy, and girl (hello Kristen Bell, you cutie).

In case you were unaware, the movie's original plot included a friend of the Fanboys dying of terminal cancer. Which ends up sparking their master plan to break into Skywalker Ranch and steal a copy of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, so he can watch it before he dies. Oh and obviously this movie takes place in the 90s before TPM came out and everybody realized just how futile an exercise that would be. It's a heart-string hook the Weinstein Company deemed way too depressing. But the fans prevailed, launching a fanpaign to put the original plot back in the movie. As it now it stands, it's Rebels 1, Darth Weinstein 0 — the cancer kid is in. Now enjoy the look inside the movie.


Fanboys is still scheduled to come out February 6, 2009.
