Too Far, Perhaps?

“A brain, I have not.”

“But all living things have a brain.”

“Know so much about the Force of Life, do we? The brain of a tree is where, and life would you deny a tree, young Padawan?”


“What is this?”

“It’s a new remake of The Wizard of Oz.  It has Luke Skywalker as Dorothy, Yoda as the scarecrow, Darth Vader as the Tin Man, Jar Jar Binks as the Cowardly Lion…”

“Stop! Stop! Is this for real?”

“Why not?  It’s fun.  And Darth Maul makes one scary witch!”

“I think Disney has taken Star Wars too far…”


Please Note – Although Warner Brothers owns the rights to the movie The Wizard of Oz, the book, and so the story itself, is public domain… ;)

      I’m sure it would be the most popular movie or mini-series of the year! I disagree, though – Darth Vader’s voice would be perfect. “There is good within you, I can feel it.” “(huff, puff) You are wrong (huff, puff). That is a possibility that was closed long ago (huff, puff). I have no heart (huff, puff). Without a heart, I am owned by the Dark Side (huff, puff).” lol. If I keep going, I may end up writing the entire script ;)

      Obi Wan is obviously the Wizard and Liea is Glinda the Good, but the lion is harder (I think Chewbacca is too cliched to work… Perhaps C3PO?). Jar Jar really is a coward, but I agree, he almost killed the prequels.

      I’m just waiting for it. Can’t be worse than the original Star Wars Christmas special from the 70s ;) Disney has been really exploiting Star Wars, but so far nothing too bad, so let’s just hope they don’t push it this far…
