Star Wars Poster Parody on Simpsons DVD Set

The Official Star Wars site recently chronicled the love affair between the Simpsons and Star Wars by reprinting an ancient article and slapping a few updates on it. That love continues with today’s release of The Simpsons: The Complete Tenth Season on DVD. Movies, studio tours and all things Hollywood comprise the theme for this set’s art direction, and on the back cover is a familiar looking poster.

Best thing, collectors, is that this artwork isn’t printed on the box itself, but rather the paper sleeve that’s stuck on the back, so you can remove it and affix it to the major appliance of your choice. Star Wars fans should also take note that this set includes the episode “Mayored to the Mob,” guest starring Mark Hamill as himself and other voices. Hamill is one of the guests on that episode’s audio commentary.

  • Highlights include Matt Groening introducing himself as an “excited Star Wars nerd.”
  • Fun fact: Mark Hamill’s son, Nathan, works for Bongo Comics, who publishes Simpsons comics.
