Star Wars Short Films & Parodies

In honor of the 30th anniversary of the Star Wars Trilogy, I've found some view-worthy Star Wars parodies or otherwise different short Star Wars videos to share with you.
Star Wars Episode III: A Lost Hope
Anakin finally knocks up Padme and is drawn over to the dark side in this Star Wars parody trailer.

Star Wars: Troops
A parody of the television show, Cops. While Stormtroopers from the infamous Black Sheep Squadron are being filmed for the hit Imperial TV show TROOPS, they run into some very familiar characters on Tatooine.

"Starwars: Battle for Hoth"
Now onto a more serious note. Inspired by the great Ken Burns series, The Civil War, this film takes an in-depth historical view of the Battle for Hoth, complete with historic quotes, pictures, interviews with "experts" on the subject, and writings from participants on both sides. Despite the comedic and parody intent of the authors, the video is an accurate depiction of events that took place in the film.

Star Wars: Revenge of the Brick
The humorous Lego version of "Starwars:Revenge of the Sith"

At the end of the short Lego Star Wars film, "Revenge of the Brick", a clonetrooper orchestra led by Darth Vader plays the short version of  "The Imperial March" (w/out credits rolling).
