Disney In Depth: 6 Funny ‘Star Wars’ Meet Disney Spoof YouTube Videos
Brett Nachman   |

The Star Wars and Disney alliance is forming, and with Darth Vader and company under the gloves of Mickey Mouse, some fascinating projects could form. News recently broke that a new Star Wars film will be released each year starting in 2015, and that only begs the question what some of the spinoffs will concentrate on.

Check out these six hilarious YouTube videos of how they envision the future of Star Wars under the Disney umbrella.

Darth Vader rides a Disney tram at Star Wars Weekends in this promotional piece. Now he's officially part of the Disney family.

Star Wars Spinoffs Part I: Growing Up Leia (sketch)”

Top Story Weekly Videos hosts hundred of videos on YouTube, drawing from its collection of sketch comedy acts at Los Angeles’ iO West. In light of the announcements of additional Star Wars films to complement the new trilogy, they have developed their own ideas for new movies. One would chronicle Princess Leia’s turbulent teens, evidence in “Growing Up Leia,” complete with an appearance by the much-maligned Jar Jar Binks. “Meesa thinks it’s love at first sight,” the narrator states. Leia falls for the Gungan guy, and some strange tongue action follows. The performers truly embrace the characters, and that is where the fun shines most.

Star Wars Disney Musical – Yoda Trains Luke”

Take the rhythm from Mulan, add some new lyrics, and replace Shang with Yoda, and you have a new version of “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” by Box Step Films. Luke’s mentor shares some words of wisdom with the Jedi, albeit it set to the beat of catchy song that most of us Disney fans know by heart. The vocalist who portrays Yoda performs his spin on the Frank Oz character quite well, and one must only admire the clever lines. “You must be swift as the flying x-wing.”

“SketchY: Disney/Star Wars Corporate Retreat”

Here is a winning piece of animation with this clip, which raises questions of what would happen if the worlds of Disney and Star Wars collided. This corporate retreat combines famous duos, such as Timon & Pumbaa playing tennis on a team against C-3PO and R2-D2, and even odder situations. Han Solo mistakes Sulley for Chewbacca. Luke Skywalker and Captain Hook find commonality over both missing a hand, though understandably Hook feels jealous of Luke’s robotic one. My favorite moment must be when Mufasa and Darth Vader realize they possess the same deep and profound voice. Classically comical and absurdly animated, this wins my vote in wanting to see an entire movie focused around this idea.

“DISNEY STAR WARS

What would happen if Disney remade the Star Wars films? Perhaps they would resemble this fictitious trailer, which portrays Luke Skywalker singing to an alternative version of “Part of Your World” and various “real” actors depicting famous characters. “I’m Nic Cage and I’m playing R2-D2. Beep. Beep. Boo. Beep. Boo,” the robot says in the classic Cage hoarse voice. Apparently the film would feature 28 a whopping original songs, though that’s not ridiculous, considering many Disney musicals possess over one dozen. The ending with the geeks purchasing the merchandise caps off a most tongue-in-cheek and whimsical take on what Disney could do with this material. Let us all hope that the company does not consider this idea, as funny as this video may be.

“If Disney Made Star Wars – Randomness”

AwesomenessTV developed this take on Vader’s famous duel with Skywalker, but to the tune of “A Whole New World” and later alternating to “I’ll Make a Man Out of You,” before jumping into the most amusing aspect. The song approach has certainly worked for many of these types of videos, thanks to witty lyrics and actors embracing the silliness. The battle of the lightsabers is just as exciting – and ironically funny – as ever. “It’s true I’m your father,” the dancing Darth proclaims.

“JJ Abrams’ Star Wars – THE MUSICAL”

Imagine the mastermind behind the Star Trek reboot competing in a singing clash against the leader of the Dark Side. J.J. Abrams meets his match when confronted by Darth Vader, who questions his ability to direct the new films, in this AV Byte video. Abrams’ passion for Trek seeps through all too often in this musical-set video, where he leads ideas on how to take the Wars movies. This video feels distinct in that it does not rely on the Disney song formula of the other featured clips, as funny as they area, and adds a nice choreographed toward the end. After watching this, I would like to see as Abrams as a Star Wars character. How about you?

Share your thoughts on these “potential” spoofs.
