Dani Daniels joins cast of ‘The Empire Strikes Back XXX: An Axel Braun Parody’.
Female Performer of the Year & Penthouse Pet tapped for anticipated sequel to ‘Star Wars XXX,’ now being crowdfunded at Indiegogo.com
Adult star and Penthouse Pet Dani Daniels is joining the cast of director Axel Braun’s The Empire Strikes Back XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, now the subject of an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. She will portray Toryn Farr, a communications officer for the Rebel Alliance, who coordinates the defense of the ice planet Hoth.
The movie is the sequel to the bestselling adult movie of all time, Star Wars XXX: An Axel Braun Parody. When the crowdfunding drive for The Empire Strikes Back XXX succeeds, the movie will become the first feature adult film to be released free of charge across the world, on all platforms.
“Being a ‘Star Wars’ nerd myself, I am beyond excited to be a part of ‘The Empire Strikes Back XXX!’” exclaimed Daniels.
“Axel is an incredible legend, and I can’t wait to see the nerd-gasm porn film he creates.”
“I can’t believe he offered me a part – even though I should have been Chewbacca, since I totally have the bush for it,” added Daniels. “I can’t wait for the true fans to donate and see it when it’s done.”
Daniels, who earned Female Performer of the Year honors at the 2016 XBIZ Awards, along with two other XBIZ Awards and five AVN Awards since her 2011 arrival in the adult industry, will bring added star-power to an already all-star cast.
The Empire Strikes Back XXX: An Axel Braun Parody includes returning cast members Allie Haze (Princess Leia), Lexington Steele (Darth Vader), Seth Gamble (Luke Skywalker), and superstars Riley Steele, Carter Cruise, Aiden Ashley, and Asa Akira, on special loan from Wicked Pictures.
“I am absolutely thrilled to have Dani in the cast,” said Braun.
“She’s a terrific performer and a gifted actress, and she’s definitely a fantastic addition to our already stellar cast!”
Braun aims to make the production model of The Empire Strikes Back XXX a statement against piracy, while giving back to fans with a movie that is completely crowdfunded. Once the movie is completed, it will be 100% free-of-charge via online download.
Set up as a Fixed Funding effort through Indiegogo, the campaign will ensure all contributions will be automatically refunded if it does not meet its $500,000 funding goal by April 22.
The Empire Strikes Back XXX: An Axel Braun Parody is scheduled to begin production June 1 and continue for 28 days in California, Nevada, and Alaska. It will be released on September 30.
