The Force: Episode II - Click above to watch video after the jump

In film, if you're going to parody a famous series, you've got to pay the piper. That's doubly true when it comes to the fiercely defended Star Wars lineage. Judging by the fact that Lucasfilm has registered a copyright complaint against Greenpeace for the company's take on the Volkswagen "Little Vader" ad, we'd say old George Lucas was none too happy to see light saber-wielding youngins protesting VW's stance on European emissions. Regardless, Episode II of the Greenpeace saga has made its way to the interwebs for us all to enjoy.

True to form, the rebel cause emerges victorious, though there's no bloodshed, explosions or battles to be seen. There is a pretty rocking dance party, though. Hit the jump to check out Episode II for yourself before the long arm of Lucasfilm lawyers catches wind of the video and has it axed.

      Green Peace this movie made me want to go and cutdown a tree or something to get the frustration of how bad this movie was out of my mind... I don't mind going over to electric power so that we can enjoy petrol driven power (v8) for several more generations! Car made global warming is invented to get tax payers to finance the development of alternatives to petrol witch there is no doubt we are running out of... Also bio fuel is very bad for food production bla bla bla....

      God that is not even remotely clever or funny. I am a huge environmentalist, but Greenpeace is the worst.

        How does that joke go... "How many Greenpeace members does it take to change a lightbulb?" "None. Greenpeace can't change anything."

      I'm afraid Michael Jackson, the Fly Girls, and Madonna all need to sue Greenpeace as well for copy-catting (sp?) their choreography.

      VWs should be banned from US roads. They're always burning on the side of the road.

          Oil is not forever, but it is still in abundance in the ground. I bet we haven't even tapped as to how much oil is underground. Even then, I love it when the Summer Solstice strikes the Northern Hemisphere and all of a sudden the Sheeple wants to scream Global Warming, Climate Change, or the "Let's bring on the New World Order." Whatever you call it, yet when the Winter Solstice hits, the sheeple suddenly vanish into there caves and hibernate. Oh wait, they don't. They still scream that the snow falling and cold winter is brought on by Climate Change, or Global Warming. Yeah, not fooling me at all. The World has been very hotter than it is now, yet life flourished. So, I don't think we have anything to worry about. And there have been times its been way colder, yet life flourished. Its just there is one particular problem, and very large problem! That big bright yellow thing in the sky, of which we have absolutely no control over, controls the climate planet more than anything. As for Al Gore, GW is a business venture. Ever heard of Generation Investment Management? He is part owner, its a company that invests in green projects. So Global Warming is an investment, no wonder why he pushes it. While flying around in private jets, and riding around in those nasty large SUV's. And a mansion that sucks up a lot of energy. Not a green way of living for a 'modern day prophet.' He didn't make up GW, but he found a way to make himself wealthy with it!

      I hate Greenpeace as it is, but now they're mocking the holy trilogy?!?! I hope these stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking, nerf-herders are all turned into bantha fodder for this!

        We cannot control volcanos.

          I think that's his point. Greenpeace cannot control the big auto manufacturers, including VW. Greenpeace seems to think they're David and VW is Goliath.
