Credit where credit’s due — I was predisposed to hate this commercial, because 1) it’s technically for Kinect Star Wars and 2) it remakes an iconic scene from A New Hope with new, lesser actors (don’t mess with Peter Cushing, yo). But I admit, it kind of won me over in the end, again for two reasons: 1) Clint Howard and 2) it didn’t show any footage from Kinect Star Wars, which would have ruined the whole thing.
Still, I think this commercial will be more trouble than it’s worth in the end. You know George is going to see this and decide to include it in the Star Wars 3-D Blu-Ray Special-er Edition to continue to fuck with us. “I had always intended not to cast Peter Cushing as Grand Moff Tarkin, but to cast Clint Howard as some nameless imperial officer. Finally, my original vision has come to life!”
