If you were a kid growing up in the early 2000s, chances are high that you watched Drake & Josh on Nickelodeon; the chances are even higher that you were into the Star Wars prequels. Who’d have thought the two would go hand-in-hand in this clever mash-up from KeenBeen?
Despite having their climactic battle in Revenge of the Sith, Anakin and Obi-Wan have always had this ‘buddy’ dynamic that was evident in the Attack of the Clones as well as the Clone Wars series. Now add all that with the feel-good tunes of the Drake & Josh intro, and you get internet gold.
While Drake & Josh may be long gone, we still have a bright future ahead for Star Wars. The Clone Wars is coming back this year with what looks to be the final season, and a lot of fans are still holding out on that solo Obi-Wan Kenobi movie. Hopefully we get some relevant update come Star Wars Celebration this month.
For now, the biggest project we have down the Star Wars pipeline is Episode IX, and the movie is set to bring the conclusion of the sequel trilogy that started with The Force Awakens back in 2015. We also have Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian which is set to debut alongside Disney’s streaming service; no release date has been set but it’s expected to premiere sometime later this year.
Catch Star Wars Episode IX in theaters Dec. 20.
