The Parodies Awaken

Sorry guys. I couldn't leave it alone. I had to post again about the Star Wars trailer...but this time it's different I promise! Look. I warned you. I warned you I'd become a mindless Star Wars monster. So with that in mind, I just had to make another post and share all the great trailer parodies I've come across by these talented Star Wars video editing fans. The parodies seem endless, so I've narrowed it down to the 5 best (okay 6....I copped out and had an extra one as a tie.) Vote for your favorite below and tell me in the comments if you agree with my choices. Or if I missed any be sure to share some links!

#5 THE DISNEY EDITION


In case you forgot who is financing this movie, this parody trailer will help you remember. My favorite is the Aladdin & Jasmine cameo.

#4 THE LEGO EDITION



This one isn't funny so much as adorable. Though their version of the droid did make me chuckle. A pretty dang good recreation I'll say!

#3 TIE WES ANDERSON EDITION

Totally fun edit and very much in the vein of Wes Anderson. Somehow I feel that parody Wes Anderson films always look better to me than real Wes Anderson films. I'd totally see this movie.

#3 TIE GEORGE LUCAS COMMENTARY EDITION



This guy's George Lucas impersonation is SPOT ON. As someone who lived off of interviews from this man for a good six years of my life the nuances of this impression were uncanny. Funny stuff.

 #2 THE LENS FLARE EDITION


JJ Abrams is infamously known for and notoriously teased about his abundant use of lens flares in his films. I like the look personally...but one time when watching the most recent Star Trek movie I did notice it was a litttttle out of control. Still love ya JJ.

#1. GEORGE LUCAS' SPECIAL EDITION

So if you know me, you know I'm pretty loyal to George Lucas....for the most part. But this version of the trailer if it was tweaked by the creator is pretty hilarious and incredibly true. I almost like watching this one more than the real one because it just makes me chuckle. Plus complete props to the guy (or gal) who edited this. From editor to editor I say "very well done." 


Which parody trailer was your favorite?
