WORD OF THE DAY! 11/4/14!

podracing [pawd-rey-sing]
1. Star Wars. A popular sport in the less-developed parts of the galaxy and one of the most dangerous sports ever invented.

EX. Podracing is the only thing Anakin Skywalker was ever good at.

That is the thesis behind ANI, the latest parody from Starkid, and today's subject of the Word of the Day.

Taking place between Star Wars Episode III and Star Wars Episode IV, ANI is a tale of following one's dreams, taking last chances, and redemption wrapped up in a musical parody of Star Wars & sports films. Lord Vader, or "Ani" as he likes to be called, is an over the hill, over weight and overly disliked overseer of the Deathstar project. When his position is challenged, he finds an opportunity to recapture his greatest moment of success-- winning the Boonta Eve podrace! But with little time to get ready and a lot of opposition in his way, its gonna take friendship and a little bit of the force to carry him over that finish line in one piece.

It isn't my very favorite Starkid musical but I still recommend it to Star Wars fans.

You can check out the whole show at the link at the top of the page or check out the first part HERE.

And remember to check out the incredible Sci-Fi film parody, filled with bits from Starship Troopers to Bug's Life, from Starkid:

Also, make sure to check out the definite must-see for fans of Batman, fans of Starkid, or fans of musicals is "Holy Musical B@man!" their latest and most awesome show. You can watch the whole thing by clicking the link below.

But my favorite is probably the amazing Disney parody, with a focus on Aladdin, that they wowed their fans with last year:

Or if you want to go back to the original hits and some Harry Potter, check out A Very Potter Musical and/or its Sequel. They have a number of other productions that are definitely worth seeking out, as well.
