Top 10 Star Wars Spoofs
I absolutely LOVE the Star Wars trilogies (yes, trilogies, pluralâI thoroughly enjoyed Eps 1-3, so sue me) but arenât so much of a Star Wars nerd to take them TOO seriously. What follows are some of the best spoofs of Star Wars, done both by âamateursâ and professionals alike. And poor olâ Darth Vader bears the brunt of the funninâ. I’m sure I’ve forgotten some. Have any to add, readers?
Plot holes? What plot holes? This simple animation shows how âA New Hopeâ should have ended.
Itâs in Japanese, but if youâre only an English-speaking gaijin, that makes it all-the more fun.
âDoomblakeâ had some fun with Vader in his meditation chamber.
Yes, I didnât place this first, but thatâs because the rest of them are so blasted good. Best scene: Stewie Vader, just âdoing my job,â asks about the design flaw on the Death Star.
Brilliant, brilliant mocking. See! Darth Vader take care of Jar-Jar Binks. See! how Imperial officers avoid getting choked by Darth Vader. See! what really happened when Ben Kenobi cut off Snaggletoothâs arm. See! The saga of a poor janitor who transfers from Naboo to Coruscant to the Death Star II. See! âŚ Ah, you get the point. Best clip:
What if the Empire invaded earth and set up a base in San Francisco? This skillful vid blends model and CGI Star Wars images into actual casual footage shot in San Francisco.
You knew they couldnât hit the broad side of a moisture vaporator. But did you also know they didnât do first aid?
Not a spoof of the movies, but rather a comedy adventure series that âIllusive Entertainment LLCâ created using the Star Wars: Battlefront 2 gaming engine. Theyâve only gotten to part 3 so far. If I remember right, either YouTube or LucasArts intially had some problems with the project (copyright issues) but Illusive convinced them to let the adventure continue. Hereâs the web site, but see the trailer first.
Meet the most pathetic dark Jedi in the universe: Chad Vader! According to the creators, âLife is hard when youâre Darth Vaderâs less-talented, less charismatic younger brother and you manage a grocery store.â
James Earl Jones was, of course, the voice of Darth Vader. âAKJAKâ took clips from several of Jonesâ movies and beautifully weaved them into clips from the first Star Wars. Absolutely love this jive-talkinâ Vader. (Language warning.)
Do you seriously think that the Death Star exploded because Luke Skywalker fired a couple of torpedoes through a two-meter exhaust port that led directly to the main reactor? Seriously? Well, youâre wrong! Here it is in .mov format (quicktime).
Troops is the ultimate Star Wars parody (one of the first, actually) and one of the greatest spoofs of anything, EVER. What really happened in the deserts of Tatooine when the stormtroopers went looking for R2-D2 and C-3PO? Man, sign me up for the action and adventure in the Imperial Army! Unfortunately you have to download this movie – it is 30 MB in size. Here is the link.
