Anakin Skywalker: The Fan Dub

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a fevered analysis on the shared and disperate qualties of Luke and Anakin Skywalker. The conclusion was Anakin is a horrible, horrible person but also a victim of circumstance, because his formative years were a trauma-inducing roller coaster of highs, lows, and constant dehumanization.

With this in mind, I naturally decided to go back and redub some scenes from Attack of the Clones with new dialogue for Anakin that more acutely reflected this particular reading. Dark humor ensued.

"Sweeping floors in the new jedi temple dedicated to me" FTW

That's brilliant.

he sounds a bit like Michael Cera. Intentional?

These are brilliant. and I thought the dog in UP had over revealing honesty.

Michael Cera LOL! If he sounds like MC that is unintentional, because that is basically just me talking in a slightly lower and more psychotic than usual voice. So I think the real question is why does Michael Cera sound like a GIRL doing a bizarre Anakin Skywalker impression?!

Thanks to all who enjoyed this - the third and final installment is on the way. As AOTC progresses, Anakin becomes more overtly evil, so it becomes hard to top the things he's ACTUALLY saying.

also: I love the phrase "over revealing honesty". Who needs tact when you're the living embodiment of The Force?
