'Kinect Star Wars': Chris Pratt challenges Darth Vader

Posted on

Luke Skywalker. Obi-Wan Kenobi. Andy Dwyer? In Kinect Star Wars, the upcoming motion-controlled game for Xbox 360, anyone can feel as though he or she is a real Jedi master — even Chris Pratt, who plays the lazy shoeshiner-turned-assistant Andy on Parks and Recreation. Case in point: this new two-minute short film, which EW.com is exclusively debuting. The clip features a bathrobe-wearing Pratt facing off against Darth Vader in the iconic lightsaber duel from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. All I’ll say is that Mr. Vader is a very patient man (and that Pratt’s geeky giggle at 0:44 is priceless). Check out the video below:

Kinect Star Wars is set during the prequel trilogy, although players will be able to visit environments from the original trilogy, such as the Cloud City planet of Bespin. Microsoft hasn’t announced a release date yet, but a LucasArts rep confirmed that the game will hit stores this spring. For now, we’ll just have to wait and continue practicing our Jedi mind tricks.
