When Han Solo and the rescue party arrives in the Imperial Cruiser to save Leia they get out of the Falcon and knock out the 2 storm troopers on guard in order to steal their uniforms. You can briefly see them in the next scene naked and tighten and they clearly resemble Vincent and Jules from Pulp Fiction, just pay attention to their hair. See more »
This isn't the parody you're looking for...
LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales begins at the end of episode VI. While C-3PO is telling stories about the old adventures he had with R2-D2, his droid friend is kidnapped and he decides to go after him and save him.
As a big fan of the LEGO games I decided to check this one out. Essentially it's a show for kids. However, I think the creators meant to reach a larger audience than that. The way they handle the prequels and make inside-jokes about detailed aspects of the films show how they aim to satisfy an older generation as well.
You'll see some cute and silly stuff that's sometimes similar to what you will find in the LEGO games. While I'll have to admit a few jokes actually made me laugh, the major part of it is just poor slapstick comedy and punch lines that don't fit in the saga, and most of the time it's irrelevant and alters or completely butchers many memorable scenes from Star Wars.
The plot is also less focused around C-3PO going on a new adventure to find R2-D2 and more on retelling episodes I-VI, and a sloppy attempt at that. On a plus side it's nice to hear Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, but this together with just a few comedic moments is not enough for me to recommend this series.
