Trailer for 5-25-77. That’s an upcoming movie I haven’t heard of for a long time…
The Phantom Menace, Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, and Return of the Jedi in 60 seconds, with Attack of the Clones and Empire Strikes Back in 10.
British Phantom Menace spoof. I believe this is from French and Saunders – that’s Jennifer Saunders as Qui-Gon, anyway. Some of the funny must have gotten lost in the trip over the Atlantic, but screenshots of the Queen Amidala scene have been amusing me for years so I had to link it. Sorry. This action figure parody of game show The Crystal Maze may amuse more.
Ewoks and Stormtroopers, just because:
– Injured stormtrooper.
– Ewoks cartoon promo.
– Return of the Jedi trailer.
– Classic Clip: Stormtrooper hitting his head.

Leonardo DiCaprio claims he was offered the part of Anakin Skywalker, which will surprise no one who’s seen all those damn commercials for The Aviator – he could be Jack Lloyd’s older brother. However, he’s also, well, Leonardo DiCaprio, which means he looks like a troll on growth hormones. Thank you, Leo, for choosing to make
crap fine films like The Beach instead.
