Afternoon Links: Patton Oswalt’s Star Wars Filibuster Gets Animated

This animated version of Patton Oswalt’s Star Wars filibuster speech is worth a look, if only for the tiny baby Padawans floating in an anti-gravity classroom. Depending on your mood, you may also want to become involved in the predictably crazy comments section (“So then why not Photon who has power over energy would be more powerful than Moonknight also how is Moonknight any more powerful than Hawkeye or Blackwidow?” “Wolverine has a daughter so who is the mother?” “Patton Oswalt thinks that MoonKnight and Hercules are top tier? Hawk Eye and Black Widow might be 2nd string heroes but fucking MoonKnight… really? He is D list, down there with FireStar and ShatterStar”); at least a handful of the viewers seem to genuinely want an Actual Movie based on Oswalt’s improvised Parks and Rec monologue. Didn’t we just get a real movie for free? I mean, moving mouths would be nice, but aren’t you people ever satisfied?
