LOS ANGELES—Coinciding perfectly with the debut this week of the new 3D incarnation of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, two-time AVN Director of the Year Axel Braun's long-awaited Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody, co-produced by his Axel Braun Productions and Vivid Entertainment, premieres today on Vivid.com, with a subsequent DVD release next Tuesday, Feb. 21.
Starring Vivid Girl Allie Haze as Princess Leia, with Seth Gamble as Luke Skywalker, Rocco Reed as Han Solo, Dick Chibbles as Chewbacca, Lexington Steele as Darth Vader and Tom Byron as Obi-Wan Kenobi, the parody is being touted as the biggest-budget production in adult entertainment history.
"Star Wars XXX is destined to be the best selling adult parody ever," Vivid founder/co-chairman Steven Hirsch said. "Our first teaser on YouTube has already been viewed by over a million people, and we expect an even larger viewership for the new trailer. This far surpasses even our Batman XXX: A Porn Parody trailer. We've incorporated an incredible array of special effects into this movie and it is by far our most expensive and elaborate production. Axel is a master at his craft and he definitely hit it out of the park on this one."
Pop culture site Die-Screaming.com said, "Star Wars XXX is set to become one of the best selling and most popular porn movies of all time when it is released this month ... Based on the footage contained in the trailer, it's clear that Axel Braun has really put together something special with this porn parody … injecting a healthy amount of tongue-in-cheek humor. The graphics look amazing … the casting is dead on and Axel Braun's reputation for creating highly entertaining porn parodies all combine to make Star Wars XXX something I'm really, really excited for."
"The original Star Wars is regarded by many as the greatest sci-fi movie of all time," noted Braun. "In our adult spoof everything is skewed and filled with so many subtle in-jokes that rabid Star Wars fans will know instantly that we speak their language."
The re-imagined Luke Skywalker of Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody is anything but the savior of the galaxy; he's nervous, immature and has never seen a naked woman in his life. Han Solo was a scoundrel in the original; in the parody he's become an actual felon. Obi-Wan Kenobi is portrayed as a relentless drunk, more interested in finding his next bottle and ridding himself of the petulant Luke than in rescuing Princess Leia, who appears as a militant feminist, whose only use for men is as pawns on her game board. Darth Vader is the goofy villain in scary, black armor; C-3PO is every bit the metrosexual droid we always thought he was; and R2D2 has the foulest mouth in the galaxy. The plot parodies the story of Episode IV but with hilarious and sex filled twists on the way to the ultimate Death Star battle.
"We worked diligently so that adult movie fans who know the original movie will be impressed," Braun said. "From the opening crawl to the final credits, our version looks and feels like the original, but we've poked fun at it and added the sex scenes that adult movie fans have imagined for years. The casual adult movie viewer will find this parody funny, entertaining, sexy and probably better than they would expect an adult film to be. But for the adult entertainment fan that is also a Star Wars fan it's going to be nothing short of a geek-gasmic fanboy wet dream!"
Viewers will take a trip behind the scenes with an extensive "making of" featurette and, as with all Axel Braun parodies, a non-sex version of the movie will also be included in the DVD extras.
Filling out the cast are Aiden Ashley as Brea Tonnika, Kimberly Kane as Senni Tonnika, Rihanna Rimes as Oola, Gia DiMarco as Swill Corey, Jennifer White as a female Tusken raider, Eve Laurence as RK-421, Brandy Aniston at TK-422, Derrick Pierce as Labria, Danny Wylde as Yerka, and, in a stroke of truly inspired casting, flamboyant drag-queen diva Chi Chi LaRue as the voice of C-3PO.
