    Star Wars - Jedied - A Way of Life
    Episode One: 'Life and Murray' or 'Things to Do on Corellia when you're Dave'


    Jedied is Alive, just rather quiet lately.
    With the apparent demise of all other items on the Galactic Garbage production adgenda, Jedied is rolling ahead at full steam.
    Fueled by seemingly endless nights of Coca Cola and Japanese Rock Music (Hanel, it's better than that gawd-awful Pop/Karaoke stuff); Jedied Episode One is nearing completion, with the First Edit Completed, the first episode of the sitcom series, clocks off at a happy 40 minutes.
    Over the next month, we'll see the completion of the first chapter in the series, with Script Editing and revamping this week, Re-recordings next week, and hopefully, the editing and release of the final release version before August 24th (just don't hold me to that, please).

    Anyway, a little information about what to expect... Here's the details.


      Jedied - A subtle blend of lateral thinking and extreme cheesy-ness.

      A Mix of Star Wars, Spaced and Hitchhikers Guide,
      Jedied is an Audio Drama for the next generation.

      Set 600 years before The Phantom Menace, Jedied chronicles the life of hapless ex-jedi (post jedi, jedi-ed, Jedied, geddit?), Hal Greenwick and his supposed padawan student, Dave Shiwwiban; along with green girlfriend, Lisa Edonal (A Twi'lek with mood swings more powerful than you could possibly handle), boss Brian (A Distant Relation of Jedi Master Yoda), and droid workmate, CeeGee One-Eighty-Nine; on a diet of Murray (A Sentient Foodstuff, a concept taken with a pinch of salt), Alcohol and the out-of-date content of their refrigeration-unit.

      Jedied stars English Actors both playing the two Jedi, Jonathan Phillips (Dave) and Richard Brookes (Hal)
      Alongside the voice talents of Roman Banias (Narrator), Chris Hanel (Murray), Caitlin Connemara (Lisa) and Michael Smith (CeeGee).
      James Phillips (No relation to Jon) will be joining the cast in the Episode 2 as the Bad Guy, Mike.

      Written and Directed by Richard Brookes.
      With Special Thanks to Martin Lejeune.

      The Website has recently been re-launched, and can be found at www.brokoid.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/jedied

    Comments, Fan-mail, Hate-mail, and any burning questions you've just got to ask can be raised here.
    I'll keep you updated through the next few weeks as the first part of the project nears completion.

    Rich: I have that file to record the audition clips you want, but I'm at a loss as to the accent you want. Can you provide an example?

    The day has come, and I don't have the finished version of Jedied 1,
    But, no matter, no-one's really all that fussed.

    Anyway, seeing as I'm to blame for not meeting the deadline, I decided to ham together a quick, 2 minute trailer entitled 'Love at First Sight', which you can find, along with 2 absolutely lovely wallpapers, on the Jedied Website.
    Awesome thanks to Cait Connemara and Jon Phillips for rushing in those quick lines, and to Ry Simpson for making those brilliant little caricatures.

    Otherwise, that's it, you won't hear from me for a month of so.
    So... ciao.

    Alright, sorry, it was supposed to come out Autumn last year, I bottled, after hearing it, I felt the comedy did'nt quite work as it was, I apologise for not saying anything sooner.

    Jedied is going through a few changes at the moment. And so now, the trailer for 'Jedied - Reformatted' will be released (quite possibly on Newgrounds) around this time in 2 months.

    I'll do my best to shoot some Concept Art and Audio samples onto the board some time next week.

    ...Along with finishing off the Official Site...

    Wow, it lives again. I'll be sure to put a news byte up about that on Fanworks tomorrow or Tuesday.

    Any chance you want us to hook you up with a Fanworks page too, like we discussed ages ago?

    And whatever happened to Space ****?

    *chuckles* Space **** was never my thing, Nate. Ry went off to do bigger and brighter things... besides, after episode 5 the scripts were verging on tasteless ^_^ if I do say so myself.

    Anyway, yeah, find me on MSN or something, I'll see about that fanworks page, I'll just finish off the page on the G2 site first so there's some material to link to.

    Tasteless? Tasteless? We took the concept of rude words and fart jokes and made something really epic. Tasteless indeed.

    I loved Space ****. It was crass and crude, but sometimes its a nice distraction. I thought some of the gags where as close to Douglas Adams as I've heard from a fanaudio. I hope they continue with the humor.

    I'm probably late to the party on this (as usual), but if you need any characters, I'm available. I do quite a few accents and have a book for speaking certain Star Wars languages (I put Trekkies who speak fluent Klingon to shame with my Wookiee.)

    ****. ****. ****.
    Translated from British slang:
    Idiots, Morons, Goof-balls.

    Space Idiots is the American translation of the title.

    Its ok. Don't call the FCC. TFN isn't owned by Clear Channel.

    "****" in "Space ****" makes it something that can't be discussed?

    Quick, Rich, insert a plug for the Fanworks board at GalacticSenate.com quickly! :p

    As the creator, the title is my idea and responsibility, I would just like to say, for the record-
