SamMacaroni‘s parody “Star Wars VII – Return of the Empire” brilliantly incorporates classic Disney-isms into the Star Wars universe. It’s appropriate enough considering Disney’s highly controversial move to buy Lucasfilms, Star Wars’ production company.
In this parody, Darth Vader has a high-pitched Mickey Mouse-esque voice with complimentary ears, Wall-E is best friends with R2D2, and Luke Skywalker looks like Zac Efron circa High School Musical. There are also several characters who have been put through the Disney factory and are now animated and well, cute! But bringing Disney into the Star Wars world doesn’t mean everything family friendly. Marconi turns Yoda into a club kid.
“Star Wars VII – Return of the Empire” stars Macaroni and fellow YouTubers Timothy Delaghetto, ShayCarl, Ed Bassmaster, Liz Katz and Alex Farnham.
P.S. Am I the only one who thinks R2D2 kind of resembles a Dalek from Doctor Who?
