Small but almost perfectly formed, this is great fun for Star Wars fans.
While this may be nothing more that a series of Star Wars gags bundled together into a package that runs for just over 20 minutes, it is one of the very best comedic jibes at the Star Wars universe I have ever had the pleasure of watching.
Crude stop-motion style is elevated by numerous little touches of detail and care (just watch the background and foreground and try to take in every detail) and taken to greatness by a stellar voice cast that includes Seth Green, Candace Bailey, Seth MacFarlane, Ahmed Best (reprising his role as the much-hated Jar Jar), Breckin Meyer, Hulk Hogan, Conan O'Brien and, perhaps best of all, a small turn from George Lucas playing . . . . . . George Lucas.
Some of the nonsense is just inspired lunacy (such as the final musical number "Empire On Ice") while other moments have fun siding with the vocal fans who have a bone to pick with many of the things that they see as flaws in the grand design.
I don't think I've laughed out loud so often in a long time. And the only thing that's almost as funny as this that I've seen recently is . . . . . . . . . Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II.
