Nerd Watch: George Lucas Strikes Back Trailer

Jun 03, 2011

So what was George Lucas really doing in the time between Return of the Jedi and Phantom Menace? Was he meticulously developing his plan for three more Star Wars prequels, or was he being help captive while an imposter created three Star Wars movies that pissed off fans worldwide? That's the hilarious premise behind this fan-made trailer for George Lucas Strikes Back, which claims the Powers That Be wanted more Star Wars movies so bad that they kidnapped Lucas and held him hostage while a fake George Lucas made three mediocre films and turned hated characters like Jar Jar Binks into stars.

However, years later Lucas finds a way to escape and recruits some of his old friends (Princess Leia, Chewbacca and a grown-up Short Round) to go after the menacing force behind this evil master plan ... and maybe rip off a Beastie Boys video or two (while paying homage to Oldboy) at the same time. Kudos to its creators,  Bridge Stuart and Mike Litzenberg, for finding an inventive, refreshing take on the fan-made Star Wars front. Check it out below and let us know what you think ...
