Movie Info

The Star Wars saga gets the finger -- well, not exactly a finger, but close -- in this parody in which all the characters are played by costumed human thumbs. Young Loke Groundrunner (voice of Steve Oedekerk) and wise Oobedoob Scobydoob Benubi (voice of Rob Paulsen) are called upon to rescue space monarch Princess Bunhead (voice of Andrea Fears) from the machinations of uber-villian Black Helmut Man (voice of Mark DeCarlo). In order to rescue the princess, Loke and Oobedoob must thrown in their

Audience Reviews for Thumb Wars

An odd but inventive parody of the original Star Wars films. It's has a few funny moments of slap-stick comedy and a lot of the thumb/finger/hand related props were clever, the problem is that it's just not very funny. Robot Chicken Star Wars is much better, very similar but funny.

An awesome tribute to the Star Wars movies. It's mostly "A New Hope" with a few "Empire" scenes thrown in. I wish they could do the entire saga. The little thumb puppets are so cute; it's weird when you first see thumbs with faces on them. Look at Princess Leia's hair and you'll see Cinammon Buns! Ben Kenobi seemd a bit gay in this one. Chewbacca was hilarious. The sets and costumes are detailed. The space effects are good too. Some of the jokes are lame, but most are good. This has become a classic.
