Jar Jar Wars, Episode IV : A New Dope: The Novelization Parody
This parody novelization is intended to help George Lucas (writer-director of the films THX 1138 and American Graffiti) finally get the recognition he deserves for a science fiction/fantasy film he did in 1977. The film featured characters that were too bizarre for most people: a princess, a wizard, a sasquatch, a guy in a black diving helmet. Jar Jar Wars humanizes these characters and makes them accessible at last, perhaps providing a classic cult film with greater acceptance.

About Paul A Erickson
Paul Erickson's mission in life is to become the world's foremost nerd parodist. Erickson was born in 1959, and has lived his entire life in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park. He read "The Hobbit" in grade school, and at the end of high school saw "Star Wars" nine times, twice on opening night. Later, while out of work in 2009, he kept busy by writing a parody of his favorite book: "The Hobbit." Erickson titled his book "The Wobbit A Parody" and sold it on Amazon starting in 2011. "The Wobbit A Parody" was discovered, translated and published as a German paperback in 2012 by Munich publisher Piper Verlag. They published Erickson's second parody, "The Superfriends Of The Ring" in 2013. The parodies are also available in Turkish and Russian. At the end of 2014 Erickson's German publishers requested that he suspend his work on The Two Towers Strike Back so that he could write a George Lucas parody titled Jar Jar Wars. This new parody is intended to help Lucas (writer-director of the films THX 1138 and American Graffiti) finally get the recognition he deserves for a science fiction/fantasy film he did in 1977.
