Darth Stiller?

If you've seen the new TV spot that's been running for NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: BATTLE OF THE SMITHSONIAN, you've noticed a new character that you might not expect in a NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM movie: Darth Vader. What is he doing in the movie? Strangely being the butt of jokes, which I'm surprised Lucasfilm would sign off on (but then again I'm sure they wrote out Lucas a big check so I guess I shouldn't be surprised). Slashfilm also reports that Oscar the Grouch is in the new movie as well and can be seen in the film's new trailer (in theaters this weekend with WOLVERINE).

In reality, Darth Vader hasn't actually been in the Smithsonian since 2003 when the "Star Wars: Magic of Myth" exhibit ended. The original Oscar the Grouch puppet, however, is still on display at the National Museum of American History. NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM hits theaters on May 22.

well said, Tailgunner. Besides, Darth Vader has been making cameos in other movies for years: Indian in the Cupboard, E.T., Back to the Future, etc...

Thing about Star Wars is...

..everybody takes it far, far more seriously than George Lucas does. Other people made it into a epic thing beyond all reason; George just wanted to do his take on Buck Rogers. Now he just wants to have fun playing with his characters, so it makes sense that he'd lend them out for others to play with too. Kind of like when you had all your star wars figures and put them in G.I. Joe vehicles and had Luke making out with Scarlett and getting Duke jealous... I digress. The point is, people

The point is, people should take a cue from George and lighten up about the Star Wars thing.
