funniest Star Wars parody films

Hi I'm new here. Really like this fantastic forum. I've become a huge fan of viewing the Magnolia Fan edits, Star Wars pre-SE discs and the Deleted Magic project.

I was wondering what everyone's favorite Star Wars parody is? I've always thought "George Lucas in Love," "Troops" and "Thumb Wars" were classics. And "Hardware Wars" and "Spaceballs" have a certain charm, even if they're hopelessly dated in the 70's and 80's. I've always liked the "South Park" episode where Cartman & the gang try to stop George Lucas and Steven Spielberg from remaking "Raiders of the Lost Arc." And the final lightsaber duel in "Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back" has its moments.

Of course, the cynical view would be that the best parodies ever of Star Wars have been the 78 Holiday Special, parts of "Return of the Jedi," and all of "The Phantom Menace," but that's too easy. I think it would be great if they made a "Scary Movie" type parody of the Star Wars prequels in the next few years. Although Lucas would probaby sue the crap out of them.

It would be cool for fans to list there favorite Star Wars humor. Or even unintentionally humorous moments like Luke, 3PO and R2 on the Muppet Show, the stormtrooper hitting his head in "A New Hope" or Yoda saying, Good relations with the Wookies, I have" in Episode III.

My favorite parody is "STAR WARP'd". It's not exactly a full length movie, but it parodies Star Wars (old and new), Star Trek (original series), The Terminator, Alien, E.T., and The Matrix. The first time I watched it, I thought I would bust a gut laughing so hard.

My Favorite is Tie- Tanic. Very funny! Tie Fighters blow up the Tietanic, but the most funniest part is the dialogue in the begining.

How about Star Wars parody comics? Coz guess what - I write one.

Well, Tozzer is not so much "star wars parody" as "everything parody", but in Tozzer 2, George Lucas sure does get a satirical pummeling. I'm a huge believer in the integrity of the original SW trilogy, and I make that quite clear in the comic, but, ya know, in a funny way.

I never saw Thumb Wars, but it looked intriguing. Worth tracking down?

My favorite is this one:

George Lucas was seduced by the dark side. The OOT ceased to exist in his mind and became the Special Editions...." "They're more maching now than movies. Twisted and evil."

The Animaniacs did a 22 minute spoof of Star Wars once. I haven't see it for some time. If I find it its going to be on, I'll record it.

According to the TV Tome (now www.tv.com), its called Star Warners.

1. Spaceballs was the first parody I saw of Star Wars. I enjoy it very much.
2. I saw George Lucas in Love. I saw Shakespeare in Love. I think George Lucas in Love is far better.
3. I actually subscribed to a magazine, just so I could get Troops on DVD.

Spaceballs! I hate yogurt!
"Drink the Kool-Aid. Wear blinders. Cover your ears. Because that's the only way you can totally enjoy Revenge of the Sith -- the final and most futile attempt from skilled producer, clumsy director and tin-eared writer George Lucas to create a prequel trilogy to match the myth-making spirit of the original Star Wars saga he unleashed twenty-eight years ago. Fan boys, of course, have convinced themselves otherwise. So have several critics, if you go by early reviews."

Even with strawberries??

Have you ever opened a cup of yogurt and seen a thin layer of clear liquid on top??
That's Liquid Schwartz.
It comes from Yogurt.

And now you know the rest of the story.
