Pulp Phantom

Posted on

If George Lucas channeled Quentin Tarantino, that galaxy far, far away might look something like this snappy animated series out of Montreal. Darth Vader is crime lord Marcellus Wallace (complete with a Band-Aid on the back of his helmet), Queen Amidala is his Uma-esque wife, Darth Maul and Boba Fett are assassins Vincent and Jules, and Leia is the multi-pierced wife of drug dealer Han Solo. The nine 2-minute episodes are packed with sly jokes: The restaurant Crack Habit Jim’s is inside ”Star Trek”’s U.S.S. ”Enterprise” (Captain Kirk is maître d’ and Mulder and Scully share a table); that 1977 disco version of the ”Star Wars” theme accompanies the dance contest. What’s next — ”Reservoir Ewoks”?
