Star Wars: Retold (by someone who hasn't seen it)

(Vimeo link)

My friend Amanda had never seen a whole Star Wars film. When I asked her if she wanted to watch the original trilogy she said that she would, but that she already knew what happens. So I took out my voice recorder and asked her to start from the top.

By far the best summary of Star Wars I've heard. Much better than my 3 yr old's. He always forgets about Lando and focuses on Yoda... Figures.

she has obviously seen chasing amy due to her description of vader as a crusty old white man..........that whole scene is really the only good part in chasing amy imo

I actually did see it in the late '90s and this is how I would describe it too, because I don't remember it, BECAUSE IT SUCKED AND WAS UTTERLY FORGETTABLE.

Xayzer, Cake or death. I'm surprised to find Eddie is pervasive in everything in life...

"Yes, but do you have a Flag?"

Oh, yeah. the movie was kinda funny too. I'd like to see Star Wars Sweded.

As pervasive as a transvestite can be (sorry, that's executive transvestite) :-)

Talking about flags:

- What is it Lieutenant Sebastian?
- It's just the Rebels, sir... they're here.
- My God, man! Do they want tea?
- No, I think they're after something a bit more than that, sir. I don't know what it is, but they've brought a flag.
- Damn, that's dash cunning of them.

Anyone who doesn't know Eddie (poor bastards) are probably wondering what on earth we are blathering about :-)

when she mentioned the Han and Luke kiss, then she was obviously being purposly 'extra silly', which took away from it a little since it wasn't sincere. But despite that I was quite amused.

The only big thing she missed was the "I am your father" bit. Other than that, props for knowing that much without actually watching it!

awesome parts (animationwise) "Hans?" "Kill him! or something" "and luke is like, a farmer" "Lando betrays them, then feels bad about it, them dies, feeling bad about it." "And the planet is under attack by giant robots" "They go to the bar planet and lei is in a golden suit" (still in suit on endor)

It's late to comment on this but I thought his name was "Hans" until I was 17 years old, and a friend of mine (a Star Wars fanatic) laughed at me like I was an idiot... I told him "hey, which one of us has a girlfriend, and which one of us has a wall full of HANS SOLO variant action figures?"

That was the end of that.

This is the adorable-st/funniest thing I have ever seen.
For the record, I haven't seen Star Wars either and i thought his name was Hans till this moment :D
