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.
