Here's another call for papers that may be of interest: Harry Potter and the Other: Race, Diversity, and Difference in the Wizarding Worlds.

On to the topic of Star Wars documentaries...

While awaiting my copy of the new documentary Elstree 1976 (2015), I got to thinking about other documentaries related to Star Wars -- above and beyond those "making of" documentaries available with various versions of the DVDs, my favorite of which is Empire of Dreams from 2004, or channel-specific televised specials, such as ESPN's recent Star Wars: Evolution of a Lightsaber Duel from 2015, which my students loved -- that I find enjoyable/useful.

Here are a few of the ones I think are best:
* Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys (2014)
* The People vs. George Lucas (2010)
* A Galaxy Far, Far Away (2001)

I know this isn't a comprehensive list, but I just want to focus on the well-done, "must see" documentaries. Are there other good ones out there that I should add to the list? Thanks for any recommendations!
