'Spaceballs' Will Take Blu-Ray To Ludicrous Speed This August

In the 80's, Mel Brooks made the ultimate Star Wars fan film with Spaceballs.  When this movie came out I couldn't get enough of it.  I used this movie to introduce a lot of my friends to the comedy of Mel Brooks.  With Spaceballs, Mel not only spoofed the Star Wars universe, sci-fi in general.  This has endured the movie to fans ever since.  Many of the gags still hit, and the movie is often quoted by fanboys.  

Now we'll get to enjoy the fun in high definition when Spaceballs: 25th Anniversary Edition hits Blu-Ray on August 7th.  The anniversary edition will include documentaries, a new featurette and an option to watch the movie at Ludicrous Speed.

Take the jump to read all of the extras on Spaceballs: 25th Anniversary Edition.
