The Facebook account for Mel Brooks‘ Star Wars parody Spaceballs has posted something very interesting indeed.
An image was posted showing Dark Helmet (played in the movie by Rick Moranis), some planets and space stuff, and Lone Starr (Bill Pullman) and Barf’s (John Candy) space RV along with the words “This Friday…Something EPIC Is Coming.” The words are accompanied by the hashtag #TheSchwartzAwakens.
So what could the Facebook account for a movie from 1987 be teasing? Could it be the long awaited but never expected Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money, which just this past February Brooks himself talked about making after Star Wars: The Force Awakens is released?

The first Hotel Transylvania film showed that the most frightening monsters in cinema and literature can be human. Raising a family isn’t easy, especially when there are rebellious teenagers driving you mad.
Hotel Transylvania 2 is a continuation of the first film, and in the first trailer we get to see Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler) acting like a momma bird by teaching his grandson how to fly by tossing him off a tower in hopes that instinct will kick in and he’ll transform into a bat despite being half human. Of course if you are a fan of the first film, you probably know how this will all end up. Watch the first trailer for Hotel Transylvania 2 after the jump.
Ever since the Star Wars parody Spaceballs was released in 1987, fans of the movie have been wanting and hoping for the sequel that was joked about in the movie, titled Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money.
Because it was only a joke initially, most people never expected the movie to ever actually get made, especially almost three decades since the original was released. But could farcical directing legend Mel Brooks be ready to actually make the sequel? A recent interview seems to indicate that he might just want to.
When it comes to telling the many stories amassed over a lengthy career, few (if any) do it better than the living legend himself, Mel Brooks.
HBO has released a new trailer for Brooks’ upcoming comedy special Live at the Geffen—his first ever one-man show, believe it or not—in which he will tell some of these great stories, and perhaps do a bit of singing as well.
The special is set to air on HBO on January 31st, and you can watch the trailer for it below.
