The people behind Bad Lip Reading—who have made a stir with their renditions of Game of Thrones, the NFL, and first GOP debate—are back to take on a Force bigger than that galaxy far, far away: Star Wars.
If you’re looking to catch up on the series before The Force Awakens is released Friday, look no further. Instead of having to watch hours of a familiar story, you’ll only need to sit down for approximately seven minutes per video to watch all of these—but it’s definitely not your parents’ Star Wars.
It’s not so much about Luke’s journey learning the powers of the Force and the fight between the Rebels and the Galactic Empire anymore. Instead the story boils down to the simple things, like Darth Vader’s attempts to send Leia helmet pics, Han’s brilliant idea to build a baby Taco Bell, and a musical number from an unlikely source.
In The Empire Strikes Back, Vader shows that he’s a much better employer than we give him credit for, we learn what Luke did in Dagobah, and Lando is just trying to throw a good party.
While Bad Lip Reading’s trilogy has a lot fewer Ewoks, you’re left with Jabba the Hutt’s attempts at redecorating his digs and Luke’s wish for a rap girlfriend.
It’s hard to top the original Star Wars trilogy, but these come pretty close to it.
