Disney Characters Audition for 'Star Wars: Episode VII' in Parody Clip (Video)
Speculation abounds over the possibility of original Star Wars trilogy cast members Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher joining 2015’s recently announced Episode VII. But with the sci-fi series’ move to Disney, the trio could have some extra competition.
A new video from the Screen Junkies imagines what it would be like if Disney classic characters auditioned for the new Star Wars installment.
Mickey Mouse, Goofy and Donald Duck all try out for the part of Luke Skywalker, while Sebastian (The Little Mermaid) takes a stab at Obi-Wan Kenobi. Somehow, “these aren’t the droids you are looking for” doesn’t sound quite as convincing coming from a crustacean with a barely passable Jamaican accent.
Captain Jack Sparrow, Mary Poppins, and Snow White (played by Wilfred’s Fiona Gubelmann) also act out classic Star Wars scenes, but the real gem of the video—as wrong as it is—comes when the lovable Mickey, Donald and Goofy recite disturbing lines from Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.
“They're like animals, and I slaughtered them like animals! I hate them,” the characters say, acting out lines from Anakin Skywalker after he takes revenge on his mother’s alien tormentors.
Do you think these guys have the acting chops to join Episode VII? Watch the video below and decide.
