On Thursday, for Star Wars Day, Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy tackled “Rogue One,” releasing a comic book commentary that matches up with the 2016 movie. The Force was with them.
When the brand exhibits up, Corbett cracks, “Lucasfilm! We make movies faster than the ‘Air Bud’ people now.”
The considerably creepy recreated model of late actor Peter Cushing (Grand Moff Tarkin) will get a jab, too. When Tarkin witheringly notes, “Apparently, you’ve lost a rather talkative cargo pilot,” Murphy asks, “Have you tried trying within the Uncanny Valley?”
But most of all, the Riffers present they know Star Wars just like the Ewoks know fleas, with jokes about weird galactic names (“Ask your doctor if Galen Erso is right for you.”) and the sequence’ father fetish. When Jyn calls for to know, “What does this have to do with my father?” Mike responds, “It’s Star Wars, honey, everything has to do with fathers.”
You should buy the riff for $three.99 (£three.08, AU$5.38), and run it towards your individual copy of the film. (The RiffTrax app syncs every thing up completely.)
