The filmmaking team behind the Scary Movie franchise, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, are currently developing a Star Wars spoof film called Star Worlds: Episode XXXIVE=MC2: The Force Awakens The Last Jedi Who Went Rogue. If you’re a fan of Star Wars and those ridiculous spoof films that these guys have made over the years, then I guess this next film of theirs is a dream come true?
I haven’t really cared for most of the films that Friedberg and Seltzer have made. I’m sure this new Star Worlds film is sure to be just as absurd as what they’ve done in the past. I will admit that there are some funny moments in these films, but they just aren’t my thing. The internet has got plenty of funny Star Wars parodies that I can watch for free. Oh yeah, don’t forget! There’s also Mel Brooks 1987 Star Wars spoof Spaceballs. There’s no way Star Worlds will be as good as that!
The producer of the film Covert Media’s CEO Paul Hanson (District 9) had this to say in a statement:
“Jason and Aaron are a powerhouse duo who have proven time and time again that they are fully tapped into the what audiences love. Their fearless take on pop culture has us beyond thrilled to tackle the world’s most popular franchise with the two of them leading us into a galaxy far, far away.”
The film is currently in pre-production and scheduled to shoot in the fall. What do you all think about the Scary Movie spoof guys taking on the Star Wars franchise?
