May the 4th. It's Star Wars Day across the galaxy. What better way to celebrate than with parodies of everyone's favorite space saga.
Star Wars has left an indelible mark on pop culture in the 34 years since its debut in 1977. Call me a Lucas-loving fanboy, but I don't think any other film or film series can claim an impact on society quite like Star Wars has.
A (Very) Long Time Ago
This explains a lot. Well, except for that whole feeding-after-midnight rule.
Rebel with a Cause
Luke was a rebel even before the Rebellion. Drinking blue milk and going to Toshi Station to pick up "power converters."
Existential Star Wars (In French)
French with boring subtitles: probably the only way we'll ever get a Criterion Collection version of Star Wars.

dundun... dundun... dundun dundun dundun DUNDUN DUNDUN DUNDUN! Ootini!
Just another day at the Death Star.
Luke Skywalker has OCD
Luke will be relieved to wash and re-wash just ONE hand after the next movie.

Going to Star Wars Convention. BRB.
The car he's in is a 1963 Ford Millennium Falcon.

My bad. That's a moon.
How come no one in Star Wars wore glasses? Did they use light sabers to Lasik their eyes?
Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires
Told you I did. Reckless is he. Matches he has.
There's a reason they didn't show Vader's reaction when he found out he had a son. It would've looked like this.
One on Every Corner, on Every Planet
Don't forget to get Darth Vader's order. He likes his coffee like he likes his Force -- dark.
Darth Vader Feels Blue
An oldie but a goodie. Perhaps the simplest and best Star Wars parody of all-time.
Need more Star Wars goodness? Watch the pieced-together, user-created Star Wars Uncut. It's a shot-for-shot recreation of the movie that started it all.
And if you're looking for some of the best Star Wars parodies of all-time, watch the first two installments of Robot Chicken's Star Wars-themed episodes. The third one will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on July 12.
Of course, if you prefer the real thing, all six movies are making their Blu-ray debut on Sept. 27.
