Everything must have a sequel or reboot these days. And next in line is Spaceballs. The hilarious space opera that parodies other beloved space-based franchises such as Star Wars, Star Trek, and Alien will now get a sequel. We have a strong feeling the wonder of Spaceballs will not be easily recreated by Spaceballs 2, but we guess Hollywood has to try. Variety reports that Spaceballs 2 will star Josh Gad, who will also produce the sequel movie alongside Mel Brooks. Josh Greenbaum will direct while Benji Samit, Dan Hernandez, and Gad serve as writers on the film. Spaceballs 2 is reportedly in development at Amazon MGM studios.

Will the galactic jokes land? We sure hope so… but in the meantime, we’ll just be watching the original Spaceballs movie, which you can stream now on Max.
