‘Star Wars: Backstroke of the West’

Not many stories come across The Flickcast news desk about pirated Asian DVD’s, but when one like this does come along, we need to share it. A few months back, we came across a story by blogger Jeremy Winterson about the wild and wacky world of Asian bootleg subtitles, and of one film in particular: Star Wars Episode 3. Take a look at the video of the opening title crawl and following pictures.

Something tells me this isn’t what George Lucas had originally envisioned. At least it makes for a more enjoyable experience than anything Jar Jar Binks ever brought to the table. I present to you Star Wars Episode 3: Backstroke of the West.
