One More Way George Lucas Has Ruined Star Wars: Han Solo Dance Party

fb share tweet share

Maybe you’ve seen some of the commercials for Star Wars: Kinect and thought… “oh hey that looks kind of cool.” The game, in theory lets you learn to be a Jedi and in a very cool twist, actually tracks your real hand motions as you do things like simulate swinging around a lightsaber.

That sounds pretty good and all until you realize it’s actually just a buildup to a Star Wars dance off.

That’s right a Star Wars dance off.

Worse, they made Harrison Ford play it and pretend to like it.

In the following, miserable and depressing video, you’ll see two humiliations happening. In one humiliation the character of Han Solo is in the video game dancing and making a complete jerk out of himself. In the other humiliation, the actor who played Han Solo is forced to make his character dance and in the process looks like someone’s doddering old grandpa.

I don’t recommend watching this…

Ok technically this is a parody video. The Han Solo dance footage is entirely real and this garbage really does exist in Star Wars Kinect. That’s miserable and humiliating enough. But the footage of Harrison Ford playing and liking the game is actually inserted after the fact by the sneaks over at Topless Robot. Harrison didn’t actually play the game.

But even without the footage of Harrison inserted, this is pretty horrible. Every time I say this, I think it’ll be true. But really, it can’t possibly get any worse than this for Star Wars, can it?


  1. This makes me want to vomit.

    Problem: why is he playing Star Wars KINECT with a controller instead of the Kinect system?

    I’m calling bullshit.

    ford was laughing at how bad this game is and the fact that han has now offical been raped

    This is the most disgusting chop up of this footage that I’ve seen. However, it’s not hard to see that it is spliced together from multiple sources and we can all take at least some comfort that it is not real… the original footage is here for anyone who wants to see it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVlViaNxAOs

  5. Kyle Gonyea says:

     and you would be correct. Total bullshit.

  6. There is no way even J.J. Abrams could save Star Wars now.

    • Jack says:

      JJ Abrams can’t even save Star Trek why would anyone want him to make a Star Wars film for people who don’t like Star Wars? Just cuz people bought tickets to his garbage movie doesn’t mean the movie is good. The movie studio cares about ticket sales, not solid stories. Abrams is a joke.

    I think my eyes just threw up a little into my brain.
