Top 10 Star Wars Spoofs

Courtesy of the October 2004 edition of SFX magazine. (Number 6 is my favorite)

  1. Hardware Wars – The original spoof, now available on DVD.
  2. The Star Wars Gangsta Rap – While musical comedy is not my cup of tea (nor is Rap my kind of music), I can say that the Flash art and animation in this is superb.
  3. Troops – I could not get the unzipped file to work for me. D’oh!
  4. Rise of the Empire – The only link I could get working was here. The spoof uses a combination of clay and the always-popular Lego format. Only mildly amusing imo. The clay-pregnant Amidala was a nice touch.
  5. Godzilla vs. Disco Lando
  6. – A tiny-sized film by Evan Mather who has a bunch of Star Wars spoofs like Qeuntin Tarantino’s Star Wars, Mace Windu Theater: Getting Midieval and more.

  7. The Star Wars Audition Tapes – a funny Saturday Night Live bit (one of the few) featuring Kevin Spacey daoing dead-on impressions of Christopher Walken and Walter Matthau. Of course, Ifilm has many SW spoofs
  8. Star Dudes
  9. Thumb Wars: The Phantom Cuticle – available on DVD.
  10. Recruitment – A recruitment video for the Empire. Atom films also has a Star Wars section.
  11. The Simpsons “Mayored to the Mob” Episode – available on the “Bart Wars” DVD or a TV rerun near you.

And, this being the day that Episode III opens, I would be remiss if I didn’t, once again, remind us of Triumph the Wonder Dog’s interview of Star Wars fans.

  1. It looks like About.com has their own list of parodies.

    Does anyone remember a shortcomedy spoof skit with Andy Dick talking to all the Jedi Masters? Him and Yoda get into a back and forth. Does anyone have this on video or a web site to get at? Thanks.

  3. Go, go gadget Google!

    I eventually found some mention of this. It was a spoof skit that they did at the 1999(?) MTV Music awards with Lisa Kudrow as Anakin and Andy Dick as a Jedi. There used to be a video here, but it has since been taken offline.

  4. What about space balls???

    What about The Star Wars Holiday Special? After all, it had to be George’s little joke on us. Although it IS better than Phantom Menace.
