Lucasfilm Sues Porno Producer
Lucasfilm has sued the producers of a porno spoof of Star Wars, maintaining that consumers could be led to believe that Lucasfilm sponsored or produced it. The Associated Press reported Thursday that the copyright suit was filed in federal court in San Francisco on Oct. 26. It quoted Linda Wildblood, a partner at Media Market Group, the New York producers of Star Ballz, as saying, "Just like Scary Movie is a spoof of horror movies, Star Ballz parodies many different movies and themes. ... No one in their right mind could look at it and say this is Star Wars."

How dare he think that he can't be mocked!

I can't figure out why Lucas is going through all this trouble when SW has already been "pornoed" before... Who else here remembers "Star Whores" that was distributed around 1980 or 81? I seem to remember it was pretty darn funny too... Princess Lay-her, C-3penis, Chewbackdoor, R2-F*#kU, and of course the star, Nuke Streetwalker. I'd love to have a copy of it, simply priceless (and tasteless)! :)

Yeah this is kinda weird. But there must be something in the movie (hahaha, if you can call it a movie) which reflects on Lucasfilm in some small way.
My question is:
How did he find out about it?

Isn't Space Balls a spoof on star wars? I don't remember any controversy when that film came out. And there were a ton of inuendoes going on all through that movie. Hilarious.

Reed Rothchild: Have you seen that Star Wars movie?
Eddie Adams: Yeah, I've seen it four times.
Reed Rothchild: You know, people tell me I kind of look like Han Solo.
Sorry, couldn't resist.

If Lucas would stop watching these films all the time he wouldn't know about them and they wouldn't bother him so much.

The difference is that this is porn, and those are parodies/fanfilms, which Lucas likes and supports. Obviously he doesn't want his baby associated with porn

Adult DVD Empire lists Star Whores: The Phantom Anus. The cover doesn't look anything like typical Star Wars art. Not even the 'Princess Leia in SlutGear' from the beginning of ROTJ.
No Star Ballz though.

The Phantom Anus

You guys sure do seem to know a lot about porn.(haha) However, I'm not gonna defend a porn producer over Lucas. So I'm gonna have to support Lucas in this one.

BTW, Jeff, has there been any porno incarnations of Buffy?
Surely you've seen Buffy the Vampire Layer before! If not, I suggest you go out and rent it immediately.
(By the way, I'm not too sure how much of myself I've just given away with this post. :) )

Was Star Whores also known as Sex Wars? I saw the latter on late-nite hotel satellite television. One of the robots was named 4-Q. Cute.

No, but I'm intrigued
The problem is that every time the porn has a good title it always sucks. Shaving Ryans Privates, Austin Prowler (As featured on Conan O'Brian) etc etc

Well, Jeff, if you're really intrigued, here's its entry at an e-tail site that I, uh, "stumbled" upon. While there's no nudity or sex on this page, it is a "mature" site, so be forewarned:

(Wonder how long this link is gonna last before it gets pulled...)

And let's not forget Muffy The Vampire Layer. Never rented it because if it doesn't have an AVN rating on the front I tend to stay away.
