Need to kill some time while waiting in line to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens? The good people of Bad Lip Reading have you covered with these side-splitting takes on the original trilogy.

In the one for A New Hope, Darth Vader is sexting Princess Leia and Ben Kenobi is on a quest for the Pickaxe of Cortez. In The Empire Strikes Back, Han Solo insists he's not a Mexican potato and Luke Skywalker thinks Yoda's singing is pitchy. In Return of the Jedi, Emperor Palpatine taunts Luke Skywalker about not having a girlfriend.

All three of these Bad Lip Reading videos feature guest stars: Jack Black, Bill Hader and Maya Rudolph.
