Mos Eisley, you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. Oh and Wednesday is wing night!
The Cantina scene from Star Wars Episode IV has to count as an iconic moment in nerd cinema, with its exotic local and its rag tag mix of bizarre aliens and ne’er do wells. I’m sure we all agree it is a place that we’d love to see more of (special editions and prequels notwithstanding.)
Well look at this, The Nerdist (Chris Hardwick) has rounded up Patton Oswalt, Carrie Keagan, Jason Schwartzman, Mike Phirman and, Billy Dee Williams (oh Lando, how I have missed you) for a little Karaoke, Star Wars style!
Four minutes of funny for a great cause. The song is West Coast from Schwartzman’s solo effort, Coconut Records (free download of the Lando’d version here) and the video was made as a a fun little way to promote Course Of The Force, a marathon that ends at this years SDCC with all proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
As a closing note, I’m thinking this video might also show J.J. Abrams and all those Disney execs that Billy Dee is in prime Lando Calrissian shape. It’s not too late to shift the focus of the new movie, right? Think about it, Star Wars Episode VII: Calrissian Nights, It could be like a space Casablanca!
‘Here’s shooting at Greedo, kid.’
