    Ok, this is a fantasy casting call for a remake of Star Wars (the entire series, original trilogy and prequel).

    Here is the catch - all roles must be filled by Muppets.

    Luke Skywalker - Kermit the Frog
    Princess Leia Organna - Miss Piggy
    Darth Vader - Gonzo, but only becasue he has been "Dark Helmet"
    Han Solo - Clifford
    Lando Calrissian - Rizzo the Rat

    Various background Imperial officers - Rats (except Rizzo)

    Since Yoda is essentially a Muppet to start with (and voiced by Frank Oz), does he get to play himself? [​IMG]

    Dude... Chickens. They're even the right color.

    Also, there must be penguins running around the rebel base on Hoth.

    My wife suggested chickens as stormtoopers.

    Can't you just chickentroopers boarding the Tantive IV with Gonzo following the proclaiming "I want those plans..."

    My wife also suggested that Bert could be Qui-gon.

    And Robin would be Young Anikin

    Obviously the two old men in the Muppet theater balcony would have to play the two headed alien pod racer announcer in Ep. I

    It would make sense for Beaker to be R2 (as much as I love the idea of Beaker translating for Animal.)

    Maybe make Animal C3PO, so he can translate for everbody.

    Cookie Monster as Jabba: Every word is COOKIE or WANT, but somehow translates to everything with the subtitles. And he has to have that great Jabba rumble in his voice. Maybe he eats little cookies with little legs that scream. (the cookies not the legs)

    Also thinking Grover would look pretty cool in the Han Solo outfit.

    The Fish Thrower (sorry, can't think of his name) as Jango Fett (the double blaster thing with fish).

    Oh, and I wish they HAD used the Swedish Chef as Jar Jar. Priceless. TPM would probably be my favorite SW film then. Starts out fired as a crappy frycook; ends up Boss Nass's Head Chef.

    Big Bird could be C-3PO and Oscar be R2-D2

    Snuffy could be Jabba

    The Count could be Darth Maul

    nope, but I have't been getting posts

    Yes, the count as Dart Maul. I was wondering who would be good as that role!

    The news reporter (not the eagle) would make a great Boss Nass.
