SPACEBALLS: THE WMG PAGE
- The Spaceballs reputation for air-theft is noted in the opening text crawl.
- Besides, they're Druish. They wouldn't let a single molecule of air escape if they had a way to keep it around.
- It probably wouldn't have been the last time either. Dark Helmet notes that under Skroob, 10,000 years worth of air probably won't last a hundred.
- And their planet was originally Earth or more specifically the United States, Mega Maid looks far too much like the statue of liberty.
- Of course! On a more serious note, though, Mel Brooks ruled out all possibilities of a sequel when John Candy died.
- Hey, Rino Romano is the voice for both Revan in KOTOR, and Lone Starr (in the animated series).
- They both learned how to the the Force (or "da Schwartz") with minimal training.
- One of the classes you can play in KOTOR is a Scoundrel.
- Lone Starr doesn't seem to know anything about his past. Plausible enough to make it a lie.
- If Vespa and Bastila find one another, that's gonna be the mother of all catfights.
- Wait, Revan has lines? (Yes, the lines he says when he picks locks, sets mines, etc.)
- The one problem I find with your theory: Lone Starr's royal heritage. While no one on Revan's team would have reason to go "hey, aren't you a prince?", you'd think Malak would go "AND! you're also a bastard prince" during his deconstruction of Revan when they first meet.
- The reason Helmet hates Lone Starr so much was because whenever Lone Starr used up all the jam, he would invariably replace it with strawberry.
- Raspberry. Because only one man would dare give him the raspberry.
- Or he could be Lone Starr's cousin's former roommate and hates Lone Starr because of something involving raspberries that happened at a party.
- Actually, "father's brother's nephew" brings it back to Lone Starr. Then add "cousin", making it Lone Starr's (probably first) cousin. Then "former roommate" would be brother (if during childhood) or Total Stranger (if in adulthood). The latter is most likely ("What does that make us? Absolutely nothing!). However that still means Dark Helmet not only knew Lone Starr's cousin, but that that person WAS Lone Starr's cousin. On the other hand, Evil Lies ("You said you'd let her go!" "I lied."), and he could have just been making the whole thing up. (And, to make things worse, if he was telling the truth, he never said the cousin was male. It could have been Princess Vespa. Which makes Dark Helmet's infatuation with her not as sudden as it seemed, and, yes, Princess Vespa marries her cousin, which was common practice in Medieval Europe in order to keep money and power in the family, and could be a joke of itself.)
- No, it could be Lone Starr himself, if the nephew is by his father's other brother or sister.
- When the villainous President Skroob seized power, The Dragon Dark Helmet (who was a member of the Royal Entourage due to being etc-etc-roommate) killed the Royal Family. But the Royal Family's faithful Mawg retainers spirited the Infant Prince away to a monastery. This explains why Dark Helmet hunted Lone Starr before the movie (he knew that Lone Starr was the Lost Prince, due to the family resemblance and him having a Mawg retainer).
- Or his parents assumed he'd become a loner who drifts from space port to space port with only his ship and his furry friend and gave him a name to suit it (hoping to god that he didn't enter an occupation that involves extensive socializing).
- Or some Asshole civil servant back on his homeworld misspelled his name on his birth certificate. It should be Lorne Starr.
- This is literally the joke of that scene.
- Um, they're from another planet? Or maybe just another country?
- His line "I hope its a long ceremony, cuz its gonna be a short honeymoon" has a whole new meaning.
- Actually, their lines indicate that they were planning on kidnapping her as she left for the honeymoon, anyway. The fact that she ran away before the marriage just meant they didn't have to deal with her idiot husband.
- Though he may be an asshole, but not an Asshole in name. It's hard to tell.
- This may be the reason he's the only semi-competent Spaceball on deck.
What probably happened was thus: several of Pizza's underlings, led by Vinnie, decided they'd had enough of their boss (either due to poor treatment, or simply thinking Pizza was "bad for business"), and they plotted his demise. They lured him into his limousine, drove out to the middle of nowhere, declare a pizza party and attacked. They then made his death appear to be a suicide, so it was reported that he "ate himself to death."
- Either that, or, since it's implied that people can breathe in space, that they are too stupid to realize that.
Because his name an anagram of Mel Brooks.
Now that the entire Star Wars sequel trilogy has been released, it would only make sense for there to be a Spaceballs sequel to go with it.
- However, it seems very unlikely we'll ever see a Spaceballs sequel.
- Also, there was No SpaceBalls Prequel
- Technically there was. The first episode of Spaceballs: The Animated Series did a parody of the prequels.
Because it's President Skroob. Of course it would be.
