Help me die-hard Star Wars fans, you're my only hope

I'm making a trailer for the "30th Anniversary" of Star Wars with my action figures and Micro Machine ships. The joke is that it's the trailer for Lucas's final, definitive version of the Star Wars saga, and it's extremely cheesy (wires on the ships, hands moving the characters, no real sets, etc...) but with dialogue and music from the movie.

I have figures of every major character from the movies and some minors (Greedo, Ackbar, even some Shadows of the Empire characters)

I'm going to storyboard the trailer with scene snippets from the real movies, then try and recreate them myself.

So please, if you have any suggestions or advice, I'd greatly appreciate it.

I think you should have a scene of leia (sp?) doing her hair. I was mezmorized by it when I was a kid. Needless to say my mom hates her

You totally need that one scene where Lucas hammers that big nail into the top of the giant coffin and kicks it into the big hole in the ground.

and as with all final definitive versions, make sure a shovel is visible somewhere in the background of the scene

You mean the scene where that horse drops dead, but Lucas beats the shit out of it anyway?

Here's what I'm definitely using:

The pan from Jabba to Han in the Carbonite
IT'S A TRAP!
Luke vs. Vader I ("No... I am your father")
Jar Jar gets kicked in the face by Boba Fett
Mace Windu kicks ass
Yoda jumping around vs. Dooku
The Trash Compactor Scene
The Asteroid Field
"Anakin... You're Breaking My Heart..."
Lando kicking ass
Darth Maul vs. Obi-Wan vs. Qui-Gon
Han Solo kicking ass
No Ewoks (eaten by Jabba)

Basically every lame prequel character gets shot in the face by Boba Fett and Mace Windu. I guess it's a combination of real shots from the movies + ridiculous fantasy at the expense of the shitty prequels.

Leia's dress all disheveled and she's smiling while rebraiding and tying her hair


this is going to be great

I'm probably adding some of Sam Jackson's one-liners in here too:

"Yes they deserve to die, and I hope they burn in hell!"

referring to Ewoks/Gungans

I salute you, sir. Godspeed.

I love that line. Also:

"Shit, I'm the foot fuckin master."
