Monster of the Day #508

I can’t decide if this is cosplay gone horribly, horribly wrong…or horribly, horribly right.

    Chewbacca’s cousin, Hackbacca got a great gig with an evil overlord. Free blad sharpening and all the human females you can tie up.

    AHAHAHAHAHAHA It’s the Wookietaur!!  Yes!!

    I labelled this as one of the greatest scenes in cinematic history in my write-up of T-Fest ’08, and I still stand by that assessment.

    At Pixar the animators like to act out the send they will be rendering, here we see “Sully” and “Boo” from a deleted scene playing off the “Wookie prisoner gag”.

    So this is the way Ensign Hoshi Saito spends her shore leave??? TMI!!! TMI!!!

    I’m almost afraid to make a joke about the ‘horny’ Wookie…..

  • I know this one of the later Toho movies, but the title escapes me. Did the film ever get an English language release? I’m quite curious to see the film now……

  • And lest ye think me creepy, that’s because of those shorts, not because of the rope!

    I don’t know I’d say it’s a later Toho movie (Toho still makes movies), but it’s The War in Space, which has an official US DVD release.

    Viking Wookie Cosplay, next on Maury.

  • Thanks!

    Well, there was a golden age for Toho. The 60’s films are what we all remember, and the 80’s films would be the stuff that came ‘later’. Toho still cranks out pictures today, but other than die-hard Godzilla fans who follow their work, most regular folk remember their last major film being GODZILLA 1985.

    Did THE WAR IN SPACE get screened in the States back when it was a new movie? I mean, would the film on the disk be an actual US print? Or just a Japanese movie with an international dub looped over it?

    International dub. I’m assuming bypassed theaters here and went to television, like most Toho movies of that era.

  • Just knowing there’s an English dub of such an obscure film is encouraging. Sometimes, the international dub works just fine.
