VIVID STUDIO INSIDER FOR JANUARY 13, 2012
STAR WARS XXX TRAILER STIRS BUZZ -- The new action-packed trailer for Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody was posted last week on YouTube, and it immediately created buzz in the comic fandom media, and other mainstream media such as The Huffington Post. The HP was particularly impressed by Allie Haze. “Use the force. Fly the X-Wing. Master the light saber. The puns alone are a reason to do a porn parody of Star Wars,” said the HP, which noted the trailer is “surprisingly well-done,” adding, “For those concerned that this film will soil the franchise, fear not. Allie Haze, who plays Princess Leia, vouched for the production's geek credentials in an interview this summer: ‘I liked all the Star Wars movies, the originals I guess you would say, versus the newer ones,’ she said, clearly aware of which fanboy buttons to press. ‘Obviously the technology was better now when they added to them, but I like old school sci-fi, like Tremors, real old school. So I like it a lot. This is along the lines to that, they're staying really true to the original."
Fandom Post wrote that “porn parodies have been booming in the last couple of years due to the court cases that came up that allowed them to go whole hog with it and the latest to land is a Star Wars XXX parody from Axel Braun Productions and Vivid. It’s definitely amusing how closely they hew to things and you have to appreciate the overall quality of the production in doing so.” Layla aka the Dirt Ninja of Dirt.com wrote: “Hilarious news…Star Wars is now one of many famous films that gets the dubious honor of being turned into a porno. And director Axel Braun won’t disappoint…I think nerds should rejoice. This may be the closest thing to a date that some shut-ins have ever experienced! Of course, there are the super huge nerds that don’t have a sense of humor and will likely protest the movie. They’re also the same dorks who know the names of every single Star Trek episode ever made. Whatevs. Get over yourselves! Lighten up and enjoy the show!” the Mad blog The Idiotical couldn’t resist a few jokes, such as: “A shoo-in to win Best Girl on Wookie scene at these years AVN Awards” and “Yoda gets it up with surprising ease for a 900-year-old.” The full feature will be available online in stores across the country later this month.
