Hilarious Star Wars Parody Featuring The Cast Of Downton Abbey

Hilarious Star Wars Parody Featuring The Cast Of Downton Abbey

Period drama Downton Abbey isn’t well known for its abundance of force-wielding characters. This small detail hasn’t stopped Thomas Barrow (Rob James Collier) from whipping out the red lightsabre to show John Cates (Brendan Coyle) how it’s done. This isn’t a rotoscoped fan creation, no friends, this is the real deal.

Along with being a bit of fun, the six-minute clip, entitled “Downton Wars: Episode 1 — The Phantom Valet” is a promo piece to help garner funds for the Chilterns MS Centre in the UK. The target was £10,000, but at the time of writing it’s well over this goal at £13,293.

The best part is James Collier promised a new episode if £10,000 was raised, so here’s hoping for next instalment, “Downton Wars: Episode 2 – The Evil Butler Strikes Back!”, arrives soon!
