Bonnie Burton | November 13, 2008

Star Wars fan fiction is fairly easy to to find online, but fan fiction written by celebrities is even rarer. Recently, actor and Original Trilogy Star Wars fan Simon Pegg writes this tale featuring Bail Organa, Shaak Ti, Mon Mothma, Kazdan Paratus, Rahm Kota, Obi-Wan Kenobi and a holo-transmission of Yoda, among others chat about Anakin’s new role as Darth Vader and what to do with those twins.


EXCERPT:

MON MOTHMA
What about the boy?

PARATUS
He needs to be hidden as far a way as possible.

KENOBI
How about Tatooine? I have a friend there who has always said, if there’s a bright centre to the universe, Tatooine is the planet that it’s farthest from.

MON MOTHMA
Who is this friend?

KENOBI
Owen Lars.

SHAAK TI
Can he be trusted?

KENOBI
Oh yes.

PARATUS
How did you make his aquaintence?

KENOBI
He’s Darth Vader’s step brother.

EVERYONE
What?

KENOBI
It’ll be fine, seriously. He won’t think to look there.

BAIL
Are you sure?

KENOBI
Positive.

KOTA
Master Yoda?

YODA
Out of ideas, am I.

PARATUS
Very well. Leia Organa and Luke Lars -

KENOBI
Skywalker.

EVERYONE
WHAT?!

KENOBI
He should be Luke Skywalker. Come on, it sounds cooler.

Mon Mothma
What is it with you and names?

KENOBI
I think it’s important. Why do you think I changed my name to Obi Wan? Nobody’s going to be frightened of a Jedi called Benjamin.
