We knew it. We just knew it.
BR’ER BANK, CA — Sources at Disney+ have now confirmed what we’ve suspected all along. The Razor Crest, the spaceship flown by the title character of The Mandalorian, was indeed modeled after the Space Winnebago, Lone Star’s spaceship in Mel Brooks’ classic Oscar-winning drama Spaceballs.
Just a few minor details are different
Disney (the company) spokesperson Jun Disney (no relation) finally returned our call.
“Yes, the Mandalorian’s ship was modeled after the Space Winnebago from Spaceballs,” Disney (no relation) said, reading this article’s headline verbatim. “We were just trying to cash in on the excitement around the new Spaceballs theme park in Dubai.
“Honestly, we didn’t think anyone would notice.”
Also, was The Child ripped off from Yoda? They sure seem similar. Comment below!
