Excerpt 1

EXT. FOREST MOON OF ENDOR – DAY

RRMMM!!  Rock music continues as two STORMTROOPERS race SPEEDER BIKES through the FOREST.  Whooping loudly, they maneuver effortlessly through the labyrinth of trees-each one for a moment losing the other, only to have their opponent appear again in another gap.

EXT. NEIGHBORHOOD – CONTINUOUS

Victor and Nathan, aged 10 and 9, riding BICYCLES and wearing SAFETY HELMETS, are racing through the streets of a suburban NEIGHBORHOOD.  Whooping and hollering, they fly between parked cars, zip into densely wooded shortcuts, and skid over driveways.

EXT. FOREST MOON OF ENDOR – CONTINUOUS

Gunning their engines, the two Stormtroopers reach a straightaway at the same time.  They are now side by side.

EXT. NEIGHBORHOOD – CONTINUOUS

The bicycles are side by side.  The kids peddle with all their might.  They glare at each other competitively from behind their handle bars.

EXT. FOREST MOON OF ENDOR – CONTINUOUS

The two Stormtroopers glare at one another through their black visors as their bikes cruise at top speed.

BRROOMMM!!!  Out of nowhere, the SLAVE I catches up alongside the right-hand speeder bike!  The racers look over at the newcomer astonished.

EXT. NEIGHBORHOOD – CONTINUOUS

Brian, aged 10, pulls alongside the bikers in a VAN.  The racers look up at him, astonished.  Brian raises his hand to his forehead.

Boba Fett salutes them from the cockpit and guns the engine.

EXT. NEIGHBORHOOD – CONTINUOUS

The van rockets past the bikers.

EXT. FOREST MOON OF ENDOR – CONTINUOUS

The Slave I rockets past the speeder bikes.

STORMTROOPER ONE
(wildly to Stormtrooper Two)
Can he drive that thing?!

The two hurriedly halt their bikes and RIP OFF their stormtrooper helmets.

EXT. NEIGHBORHOOD – CONTINUOUS

Victor and Nathan RIP OFF their safety helmets and watch in horror.  Brian loses control and cannot find the brake.  He runs a RED LIGHT.

BRIAN
WOOOAAAAAAA!!

EXT. FOREST MOON OF ENDOR – CONTINUOUS

JAMMING ITS BRAKES and BLARING its HORN LOUDLY, an IMPERIAL STAR DESTROYER SLAMS into the side of the Slave I.

EXT. NEIGHBORHOOD – CONTINUOUS

A SCHOOL BUS slams into Brian’s van.  The vehicles skid to a stop.  Rock music cuts to dead silence.
