THE best Star Wars parody movie, ever, Spaceballs is getting a 25th Anniversary blu ray treatment this summer. Birthed from the maniacal mind of Mel Brooks, Spaceballs tells the tale of wandering Capt Lone Starr and his faithful mawg (half man\half dog) Barf as they rescue Princess Vespa from the clumsy clutches of Dark Helmet and President Skroob. Along the way they hook up with Yogurt, a wise wielder of the Schwartz. Lone Starr accepts his destiny as a Schwartz apprentice and has to re-save the frail princess from Dark Helmet. Lessons are learned, merchandise is sold, mockeries are made.
There is so much awesomeness in the movie, it’s no wonder why it stands up as a cult classic 25 years later. The mere mention of the Schwartz around fans will bring a smirk, a smile and a chuckle to faces. MGM and Fox are sly in releasing an anniversary edition for the new generation of potential sci-fi geek fans. They also need to appreciate the great John Candy in his comedic prime.
The 25th Anniversary set is packed full of features sure to tickle the funny bone of any geek. How about watching the movie in “Ludicrous Seed”? Yeah, that will be awesome! Fans will dig the new featurette, Farce Yourself! Spaceballs and the Skroobing of Sci-Fi and the film flubs content. Noobs unfamiliar with John Candy will appreciate the John Candy: Comic Spirit featurette as well.
The Spaceballs 25th Anniversary blu ray will hit this summer, August 7th. May the Schwartz be with you! Hit the break for the announcement press release!
