Spaceballs is a science fiction parody film, primarily spoofing the popular Star Wars movies.

Plot Edit

Due to Planet Spaceballs running out of air, a scheme is planned for their spaceship, the Spaceball One, to steal all the air from Planet Druidia.

As luck would have it with the Spaceballs, the Planet Druidia daughter of King Roland (Princess Vespa) flees her wedding with Prince Valium and is captured by the evil Spaceballs. Meanwhile, rogue pilot Lone Starr, with his sidekick Barf, owe gangster Pizza the Hutt a large amount of money, which they negotiate a deal with King Roland to rescue Princess Vespa from the Spaceballs. All sorts of mishaps result afterwards once Lone Starr runs out of fuel and gets chased by the Spaceballs and head villain Dark Helmet.
