Barely Political Tackles Star Wars VII!

star-wars-complete-cast-20042One of my favorite band of comedians and spoof artists – “Barely Political” – posted this video on their Youtube site recently. Perhaps best known for their song parodies performed by the band “The Key of Awesome”, they took a different path this time and decided to make some rather hilarious, satirical predictions of what the new Star Wars movie would look like.

Beginning with a shot at George Lucas, whom they portray as a bit of an overeating tyrant, they go on to predict what the original characters would look like in this day and age, take a few hosts at the prequel trilogy for its long, drawn out scenes of political intrigue and the stupid antics of Jar Jar, and top it all off with a little spoofing on how a Disney movie can’t go five minutes without incorporating a musical number.

Yeah, its all around fun watching! So enjoy and let’s hope the latest addition to the Star Wars saga steers well clear of all this 😉

  1. My fears are confirmed. Matt, you must become my new apprentice. Together we shall take over Lucasfilm and Disney and remake the films as they should be: with kick-ass SFX, realistic aliens, and a prequel that actually doesn’t make us want to tear out our hair.
