This is just a re-post/update of the STAR WARS movie nights we’ve been having at our place. If anyone’s interested and they haven’t been to one, let me know! We’ll be moving out of the movies proper into the crazy stuff soon. We do snacks, food, pop, beer, and just chill while watching the movies and cracking the occasional joke or spitting the occasional trivia.
I have the movies in bold, need to get my hands on the rest…
- Friday May 28th, 2010 – STAR WARS Episode I: The Phantom Menace
- Friday June 25th, 2010 – STAR WARS Episode II: Attack of the Clones
- Saturday July 31st, 2010 – STAR WARS Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
- Friday August 27th, 2010 – STAR WARS Episode IV: A New Hope
- Friday September 24th, 2010 – STAR WARS Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
- Saturday October 30th, 2010 – STAR WARS Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (Possible Combination with a Halloween/Costume party?)
Luke Skywalker has returned to his home planet of Tatooine in an attempt to rescue his friend Han Solo from then clutches of the vile gangster Jabba the Hutt.
Little does Luke know that the GALACTIC EMPIRE has secretly begun construction on a new armored space station even more powerful than the first dreaded Death Star.
When completed, this ultimate weapon will spell certain doom for the small band of rebels struggling to restore freedom to the galaxy…
- Friday November 26th, 2010 – STAR WARS: The Clone Wars (Animated Movie)
- Friday December 31st, 2010 – THE STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL
“Well, I know that George Lucas doesn’t like it at all—when I was working on The Illustrated Star Wars Universe, he told me that he would be happy if every copy could be tracked down and burned…” ―Kevin J. Anderson
(New Year’s Eve… we can turn this into a drinking game. Couch/floor space for the night is first come first serve!)
- Friday January 28th, 2011 – Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure
- Friday February 25th, 2011 – Ewoks: The Battle for Endor
- Friday March 25th, 2011 – Fanboys
“Fanboys is the love letter to the greatest movie franchise of all time. … I wanted the film to be my gift back to Star Wars and to the fan community.” ―Kyle Newman
- Friday April 29th, 2011 – Spaceballs
“No, no, no, no! Light speed’s too slow! Yes, we’re gonna have to go right to… Ludicrous speed!” ―Dark Helmet
- Friday May 27th, 2011 – Family Guy: Blue Harvest / Family Guy: Something, Something, Something, Dark Side / Family Guy: It’s a Trap!
“It’s A Trap!” was originally known by two different titles: “Episode VI — The Great Muppet Caper” and “We Have a Bad Feeling About This.” The first was revealed online in 2009, the other was a reference to a recurring catchphrase used in all the Star Wars films.
I know, It’s a Trap isn’t out yet… but it will be by then.
- Friday June 24th, 2011 – Robot Chicken: Star Wars / Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II
- Friday July 29th, 2011 – Star Wars Animated Adventures – Droids (The Pirates and the Prince / Treasures of the Hidden Planet) – From the 80′s Star Wars: Droids animated TV series.
- Friday August 26th, 2011 – Star Wars Animated Adventures – Ewoks (The Haunted Village / Tales from the Endor Woods) – From the 80′s Star Wars: Ewoks animated TV series.
- Friday September 30th, 2011 – Star Wars: Clone Wars, Vol. 1 (Microseries)
- Friday October 28th, 2011 – Star Wars: Clone Wars, Vol. 2 (Microseries)
- Friday November 25th, 2011 – ?
- Friday December 30th, 2011 – ?
Then we have Star Wars: The Clone Wars – The Complete Season One & Star Wars: The Clone Wars – The Complete Season Two that can each be divided out over a few nights.
Confused with all this Clone Wars crap? Well… we have 3 sort-of distinct entities…
- Star Wars: Clone Wars – the animated (like old-school cartoons) microseries split into 2 volumes, taking place after Episode II: Attack of the Clones, and before…
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars – The animated (CGI) movie taking place between the events before…
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars – The animated (CGI) TV series where apparently coming up with a new name was too difficult. These events take place after the Clone Wars CGI movie and before Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Currently there’s 2 seasons.
I’m not sure if I have the time-line right there. Wookiepedia is misleading.
Believe it or not, there are still other gems we can get our hands on… Including the Spaceballs animated series, Lego Star Wars: The Quest for R2-D2, and certainly I can try to find more Ewoks/Droids cartoons including The Great Heep. Then there are fan-films… like Troops, Pitching Lucas, Hardware Wars, Thumb Wars, etc. If I can find somewhere to download ‘em. There are a ridiculous amount of parodies, mockumentaries, documentaries, & fan fiction out there.
Related-by-stretching, we could watch TXH-1138 (Lucas’ 1st film based on his earlier short film, Electronic Labyrinth: THX 1138 4EB, & referenced multiple times in Star Wars movies), Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill are both in it and it has a bunch of SW references), the Indiana Jones movies (a bunch of SW references there too!), the new Star Trek (R2-D2 is among the wreckage in an on-screen explosion), Willow (starring Warwick Davis who plays Wicket the Ewok and several roles in The Phantom Menace – and it’s another Lucasfilm movie), or I’m sure a bunch of other movies.
