Happy 35th Star Wars! And Batman Narrates...

35 years ago today, back in May 25, 1977, Star Wars premiered for the first time in theaters. Let's celebrate with some silliness. Voice actors Kevin Conroy (Batman), Billy West (Fry), Tara Strong (Bubbles), Rob Paulsen (Pinky), Maurice LaMarche (The Brain), John DiMaggio (Bender) and Jess Harnell (Wakko) does a reading of the Star Wars: A New Hope radio play as different characters. Mostly characters throughout their voice acing careers. Tara Strong does Darth Vader as Bubbles, John DiMaggio does Princess Leia as Jake the Dog, Rob Paulsen does Han Solo as Christopher Walken... you get the picture. Kevin Conroy is the only person who stays in the same character: Batman! The Dark Knight narrates Star Wars! The video is about an hr and a half long. Initially, I thought about just listening to the opening (when Darth Vader boards the Ambassador's Cruiser) and save the rest for later but I couldn't stop. So here's your warning, make sure you have an hr and half to spare before clicking on the video. And you may experience extreme stomach cramps, snorting, and/or farting from laughing too hard.
