Star Wars video mash-ups were probably the first video mash-ups – especially if you count the hundreds of clips with light sabers edited into regular videos featuring spastic adolescents, dogs and well, other spastic adolescents. But we’ve also been blessed with bonafide mash-ups like Jedi Dogs, Goodjedis and a pretty hilarious Monty Python short.
Now, as the franchise celebrates its 30th anniversary, Lucasfilms is officially embracing the phenomenon, enabling video mashups on StarWars.com. The capability comes courtesy of Eyespot and will let people add their own video to any of 250-plus scenes and music clips taken from all six films. It will appear today as part of a general site redesign that will also bring in some Web-famous fan videos like Chad Vader.
