Luke snatches defeat from the jaws of victory in this re-edit of “A New Hope” After boasting to the more experienced pilots of Red Squadron, he arrives late for the attack, disobeys orders and ignores Obi-Wan’s repeated pleas to use the force. Han Solo is not impressed with Luke and must now deal with a vengeful Darth Vader and all Red Five can do is watch from above as the veteran Red Leader calmly demonstrates the correct way to fire a proton torpedo down a thermal exhaust port. Mark Dury mixed dialogue from the original trilogy with the Death Star scene in A New Hope, turning Luke into a worthless moron who can do nothing but watch as someone else picks up his slack.
Earlier this month, we posted Entire Star Wars “A New Hope” in MS Paint. After a hefty debate on DIGG, it came to our attention that the creator of this little jewel was a guy name foldsfive. Foldsfive, with the civil name David Court ultimately joined the discussion on DIGG and shared that there were more treasures to be found around on the internet. Sometimes I find myself amazed by the internet. How something I made an age ago can suddenly pick up interest again. It was something I made for fun (as an experiment to see whether I could do it, more than anything) for a site (www.b3ta.com) that wouldn’t post anything bigger than 250k. I did it all from memory, so the stuff about my incorrect lightsabre colours couldn’t interest me less. (and jesus wept, people accuse ME of not having a life for making it). At the end of the day doing that stuff donkeys…
“You’re gonna kill people if you give directions like that,” the frustrated sound engineer tries to tell Yoda as the Jedi master continues to grammatically invert directions in this latest adpromoting TomTom’s new Star Wars-themed voice series. Frankly, we’re almost excited enough to go buy a TomTom GPS unit JUST to get this voice pack.
Beautiful women in bikinis reading dialog from Star Wars may end up being a fantasy-come-true for quite a few of you. But where’s the video for us fangirls? May I suggest cute British rocker boys reciting dialog from The Empire Strikes Back, please?

Patrick Boivin posted this great new animated film on YouTube.com recently titled “AT-AT Day Afternoon” which is a blast to watch, here’s a quick blurb about the film. “When I was a kid, there are two things I wanted badly and never got… A real dog and a Kenner AT-AT Walker.” – Patrick Boivin
From a country that loves its mimes and Jerry Lewis, it shouldn’t be surprising that this vintage video from 1977 features a gaggle of dancing Darth Vaders and C-3POs. If droids dream, this is probably it.
Beware mouse droids and feline-hating Sith — there’s a new Jedi master in town and he’s not interested in joining the dark side. Here’s a Force-tastic fan-made video of a cat who has some rather impressive lightsaber skills. We’re especially delighted with the adorkable roll over lightsaber throw at the end.
Now THAT’S the droid we’re looking for! Granted, it is hard to miss. Carleton’s Goodsell Observatory gets turned into R2-D2 by an unknown group of enterprising students — complete with sound effects. All the “decorations” appear to have been draped or taped onto the dome; there was no defacing with spray paint, etc.
Forget singing hits from Journey, Madonna and Lady Gaga. What fans really want is to sing the Ewok celebration song! Here is an excerpt from the newly remastered “Return of the Jedi.” Side note: Wookies aren’t that good at karaoke. They tend to drive everyone else out of the bar.
