Ten of the Best Star Wars Parody, Remix and Mash-Up Videos

Perhaps no film series has inspired more parody than Star Wars. An endless legion of fans means an endless amount of remixes and mash-ups, and for the truly die hard, costumes, scripts and special effects. Here are ten of my favorite, in no particular order.

1. The Injured Stormtrooper


“Has this ever happened before?”

“Not that I’m aware of.”

2. Darth Vader Feels Blue

Wait for it.

3. Troops


An extensive budget (relatively speaking) yields one of the better videos on this list, that actually fills in some holes from the original films.

4. Benny Hill Battle of Naboo

I actually think that all of Phantom Menace could have been filmed like this and the film wouldn’t have lost anything.

5. Death Star Canteen

This is a bit adapted from a rather hilarious Eddie Izzard  stand-up bit. Please try to ignore the worst Darth Vader costume ever.

6. Chad Vader, Day Shift Manager

The most famous parody out of all of them. I still don’t know how they did the voice to such perfection.

7. Star Wars Gangsta Rap

I remember listening to this like back in middle school, but with the new accompanying video, it’s better than ever.

8. Stormtrooper Help Desk

Is the armor really necessary for cubicle life?

9. Star Wars vs. Star Trek

Not just any ordinary mash-up, this is very well done. Picard v. Vader is one for the ages.

10. Darth Vader Being a Smartass

  1. Troops is a classic fan film–I wrote all about how they made it in my new book about the history and future of fan films, Homemade Hollywood, which just came out and is in bookstores everywhere. There’s a ton of other Star Wars efforts written up in it too, from the great-granddaddy of them all, Hardware Wars to classics like George Lucas In Love and Trooper Clerks to the modern epics like Star Wars: Revelations. If you dig Star Wars fan films, you have to at least browse it at the library!
