BAD LIP READING Takes on STAR WARS’ Original Trilogy

There’s no explanation to having three videos from Bad Lip Reading at once other than it being a Star Wars miracle. The YouTube channel that re-cuts footage with — you guessed it — bad lip reading usually only puts out a video every few months. But in honor of Star Wars: The Force Awakens they’ve put out three in the same day. One for each the original trilogy’s films.

The three pieces of comedic gold (or whatever metal is precious in a galaxy far, far away) bring the usual nonsensical dialogue that their videos are known for and a few musical moments as well. Additionally they’ve got some serious voiceover help from the likes of Maya Rudolph, Jack Black, and Bill Hader lending their voices to Leia, Vader, and various other characters.

At first glance one would think that with so many people in helmets that adding dialogue for them would just be moot but it does pay off — especially for Jack Black’s Darth Vader. But the best characters to be given a new voice have got to be Chewbacca, Yoda, and Jabba The Hutt. Any of Chewie’s yells are replaced with whiny and excitable exclamations …and the occasional timid mention of Han’s name. The Empire video has Yoda singing Luke a song and then immediately threatens him for criticizing it.  And what can we say other than Jabba’s reveal is potentially the best entrance in movie history if it went down like it does in BLR’s Return of the Jedi video.

What are you favorite moments of the 3 videos? Ours might be Akbar’s lines! Let us know in the comments below!
