Joining in on the frenzy of Star Wars Week, the folks at Bad Lip Reading have teamed up with Jack Black, Bill Hader, and Maya Rudolph to punch up the dry, boring dialogue of the original trilogy: Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi.

The little girl voice they use for R2D2 works surprisingly well.

The "my emotional state" line in the Jedi video... I can't stop laughing.

Kind of weak, compared to their previous ones. Full face helmets (plus puppets) doesn't work that well with this.

C3PO with a comedy Indian accent, its like we're really back in the 70s!

Hilarious with moments of brilliance. "Bushes of Love" was an unexpected delight.

"Stranger danger! Stranger danger!"

(I guess we need trigger warnings on accents? FWIW, the ones used here are about a millionth as offensive as the pseudo-Jamaica and Asain accents in the prequels.)

...I really feel like it's cheating at bad lip reading when half the characters don't have mouths.

I must agree the results are less satisfying when there's no actual fake lip reading involved because masks etc, and I'm not sure the Indian accent is something I can get behind, and having famous actors doing bits is not something I'm keen to see, but the BLR always makes me actually laugh literally out loud, something I very rarely do at Things On The Internet, so hooray for that, at least.

Yeah, after having recently finished Master of None I was getting into this until C3PO started talking.

I don't know if they were going for a BMO thing with that voice, but they kind of achieved it.

Yeah, I think they were going for the Adventure Time reference. That was the first thing I thought of, at least.

I liked how the lightsabers made noises like two sticks clunking together.

They've made an actual music video out of BUSHES OF LOVE, with more lyrics (and thankfully no C-3PO). Surprisingly catchy.
