Watch: The 1996 High School Musical Production of Star Wars

For A More Civilized Age

Star Wars the Musical: Act 1, Part 1 from Funny Farm Films on Vimeo.

Nooooo, of course it wasn’t official. Yeeeesssssss, of course George Lucas had the sold out show closed after three nights. But the show charms, much in the same way that a production of Terminator 2 might charm if it used only quotes from Shakespeare, by using only music from other musicals, with the lyrics changed. Thank goodness for the valiant people who stuck this up on the internet for us.

Lets be honest, they had me at Uncle Owen singing Master of the House. The first of the videos can be seen above, click through to the Vimeo page to watch parts 2-6, encompassing all of Star Wars: A New Hope.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
