After having seen the first Star Wars parody that Family Guy did, I always knew there would be a second, if not 5 more, one for every Star Wars film. So when I heard about the second one being put out, which would be parodying Empire Strikes Back, I was excited to see what they would do with that darker toned film.
First off, I have to say, this film just wasn’t as good as the parody of Star Wars A New Hope, and it wasn’t just that the jokes didn’t seem to hit the mark as often but it seemed like there were less jokes. It wasn’t until I watched the special features that the creators themselves said this was a much harder film to adapt as it was a more technically challenging film as far as the intertwining story went.
That’s why, I guess, many times during the episode it almost stopped telling jokes and just let the story play out, otherwise if there were too many jokes there was a chance an audience would get confused about the actual story. So though not as good as the first it was still a lot of fun seeing this parody episode and I look forward to the third one coming out later in the year which will be covering Return of the Jedi.
7 out of 10 from me!!!
