Oh come now, let's face facts. The series was only ever anything close to funny for one fucking movie, Empire, and that's because Lucas had fuck all to do with it.
Empire's funny? I don't recall too many moments of levity in that story. Then again, outside of the poorly chosen Jar Jar Binks fiasco, I never really thought Star Wars made attempts to be funny. Maybe the small laughing dude who hangs out with Jabba the Hutt.
Anyone remember this diddy? Prefer this over the remade song in the special editions.
"Listen, I made three movies in the late 70s/early 80s. They were really great. Unfortunately, the sheer willpower required to create the Star Wars universe from whole cloth broke my brain, and as such I've spent much of my time since then trying to tear down my own legacy. Despite three prequels and hundreds of thousands of stuffed animals... I've failed, obviously, and so I think it's time to let someone else try. Peace." - George Lucas
I wish we could get more of the Fifth Element time/space movies. Star wars has run its course. Even Stark Trek got their prequals right. Disney will fuck up Star Wars more than they did John Carter.

This is an official Disneyland video, by the way...
For your health
that was kinda cute. though vader should have definitely got a churro. also didn't notice him waiting in any lines.
so i'm sure this is easily googled, but why did disney have the rights to star tours and to sell star wars merchandise before this? did they have some affiliation with jedi or something via the muppets?
Time to get rid of Mickeys Toon town. Kids these days don't even know who the fuck Mickey Mouse is. Turn it in to tatooine or hoth.
I want to get wasted at the Mos Eisley Cantina before riding space mountain. Make it happen, mouse.
I support Star Wars land in Disney Land
You know, but that's valid because if we are all gonna die anyway shouldn't we be enjoying ourselves now? You know, I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor insignificant preamble to something else.
It's that tad bit of Crazy that keeps me Sane...
this article, it started because Lucas wanted to develop some sort of theme attraction for Star Wars and Disneyland wanted both to create their first Motion Simulator ride and to create a new attraction with characters that children of the era could more easily recognize and retain an emotional connection with. They pitched it and he agreed.
Plus Han's sarcasm, such as
It seems more feasable to just turn tomorrowland into star wars land
