I have but two words to say...

YES!

MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORE!

I didn't know Jason and Colby were so goofy.
Also, too bad they left out Gav. Why couldn't he get at least something tiny, like the same thing they did with Susan or something.

Darth Vader with a thick Bostonian accent? YES. 10/10!

You should see the Star Wars Reel Physics episode if you want more goofy!

Susan Arendt:
Yeah, look, we're not fools. We know this is utterly ridiculous and groaningly bad in places. But when the idea of doing something for Star Wars Day was broached, everyone responded with such enthusiasm that we wanted to try and do something goofy and fun. And this is definitely both of those. :)

As for why Yahtzee isn't Darth Vader, he specifically asked to be Obi-Wan. "We even have the same first name."

I love Cheese.. and it was full of it.. Thank you for the great laughs! I had to watch it again!

1. Why does Lisa not have any sort of helmet? Safe Flying is good flying!
2. Gold Leader and Gold 5 killed me.. :) "Stay on Taaarget.. Stay on Taaarget..." Thank you Colby and Jason.
3. Turbo Lazshers..
4. My Beautiful Mustache!

Why are the heroes both gingers? haha.

Thanks Whytewulf! You're welcome! :)
We had a blast making it! Too bad you guys don't get to see the bloopers from us making this! LOL

If you missed me and Colby showing up in Empire Strikes Back in a similar fashion, go check out this week's episode of Reel Physics!

Oh my God that was amazing! Much love for you guys and gals.

oh my god!!

JIM!!! NUUUUUUUU!!!! *crys* D':

anyway, that turned out more amusing then I thought it was gonna be, nice work

Gav didn't want to do it.

Wow, Dan grew an awesome mustache... and looks just like James for some reason... that or James changed his name to Dan Epstein. It could go either way with this group.

Just want to go on record as saying I would watch this type of show whenever you want to do another one :)

Man, I forgot how convincingly evil Darth Vader is. It was like the avatar of Hell on the screen.

Does this mean Bob is Lisa's dad?

Susan Arendt:
Dammit. "Arendt2D2" is genius. I'm kind of ashamed none of us thought of it.

Fortunately, Janelle did such an incredible job as R2 it hardly matters.

Susan Arendt:
"Arendt2D2" is genius.

Screencapped, framed and put on my wall.

A real editor has declared a joke of mine to be "genius". My mother will be so proud.

That was freaking painful to watch.

And at 100+ posts on this thread, yours is about the only sane one.

DRTJR:

Snaps and a half. Now I just want to see where that plotline would take us!

It took me forever to realize that was Dan. The stache really threw me off.

That was amazing. What else can I say? Yahtzee and Chris stole the show. XD

I absolutely loved it. Was glad to see Chris and Kyle at the end. When Dan showed up and they didn't I assumed they hadn't the time/backed out somehow. Bob as Vader was spectacular, and the LRR crew did a really good job. Not to bash on the rest of y'all but you can tell who does comedic acting for a living.
I hope you'll do something like this again, it was glorious!

Oh god the cringe xP

Lisa was a really solid Luke though, wouldn't mind seeing her reprising the role if you lot do something like this again ;)

That was amazing.

Silly as fuck, but amazing.

That was so awesome! ^_^
Great use of those content creators. Crack that whip and force them into your parody!
Serious Cat at the end had me in tears of laughter. <3
I really loved it, thanks Escapist.

I lost it and couldn't stop giggling when an imp was one of the pilots. Hilarious.

So horrible it was beautiful :')

Highlights were definitely Yahtzee, Jim's fake American accent, ginger Solo and Darth Chipman.

Painfully awkward and accurately cheesy. Keep it up!

You know, I preferred it when people (like Graham and Kathleen - and Jason and Colby) were blowing up the Death Star with their own stage-personas, rather than as an impersonation of the Star Wars characters. So Lisa had been, well, Lisa rather than Lisa-as-Luke, I'd have been happier.

But still, I liked it :) The Lol-Cat at the finale was the cherry on the top of the cheesecake :P

Nah, what neither of you realise is that you're actually just incorrect.

2 things.

1. Brilliant.

2. Am i on drugs? Is this what drugs is like? Should I drink some water or?

It was the perfect character roll, along with million dollar special effects make up. I don't blame you for being thrown off.

Ahahahaha, this was wonderful done guys! Lisa really got into her character and Kathleen really got into character (for her) // I do love when the Escapist comes together and does stuff like this

That was completely dreadful. It was not even good in a "that's so bad" kind of way. It's was actually pretty insulting to the memory of the once great series. You didn't really add anything to it, you just stood in front of a greenscreen and committed no less than an assault on that scene.

The worst part was probably Darth Vader's iconic voice replaced by MovieBob's incredibly stupid accent. I actually feel sick and you ruined my favorite holiday of the year.

I am so ashamed of all of you right now.

Ok, if you didn't like the video, that's totally fine. It's really very silly and quite a mess, and I totally understand it not ringing your personal bell.

But you "actually feel sick"? And you're "ashamed" of us? I want you to think about what you're actually saying right there. I want you to, for a moment, consider that you think we should feel genuine shame over making a harmless internet video as a goof. You feel sick? SICK?

You're either seriously out of touch with reality, or just being needlessly insulting.

I can't believe some people are taking this so seriously, its a funny goof video done for lolz. Also Dan looks super like James Turner from LRR in this for some reason which is kind of weird since there was a discussion on a LRR podcast about how bitchin James looks when he has a stashe.

This was one of the second funniest things I have seen for May 4th , it was only topped by Brian May as Anakin Skywalker.

Pff, damn son. Take it easy. It's just a group of people having fun enacting a scene from one of their favorite movies. The fact that it actually made you feel sick says more about you than it does about the Escapists. They were secure enough in their own love of a franchise to create a video that expresses that love in a completely and utterly cheesy manner.

Gotta admit, that was pretty fun. My favorites were Darth Movie Bob and freaking Yahtzee as Obi-wan Kenobi! So yeah, I found it very enjoyable, dunno why some people are taking it so seriously...

And may the Fourth Be With You!

Reeve:
That was so bad that it was good.

Pretty much. It came together in just such a way that the awfulness of it was charming and funny.
