‘Spaceballs 2’: Posters for sequel mysteriously appear in New York City

A scene from the original 'Spaceballs' movie in 1987.


In the original 1987 Spaceballs movie, Mel Brooks’ character Yogurt makes reference to a sequel in the future entitled Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money.

Now it seems that the hypothetical film might be coming soon, at least according to posters for the movie, which have mysteriously started appearing around New York City.

In 2015, Brooks, who also directed Spaceballs, said “I’m thinking now, if I did a movie that came out right after Star Wars comes out, you know, maybe a couple of months later, Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money, I’d have a big weekend, no matter what, even if it fell on its ass and you know, didn’t get that money back.”

UpRoxx reports that fans are making the posters and putting them up around the city, even though it’s been months since the latest Star Wars film, The Force Awakens, opened in theatres. It’s unclear as of this writing who’s responsible for the ads.

In a clear spoof of the crumpled Darth Vader helmet that’s shown in The Force Awakens, Dark Helmet’s crushed, cracked helmet is front and centre. Canadian Rick Moranis played the role of Dark Helmet in the original movie.

Brooks said that there’s no movie without Moranis. “I’ve got the helmet in storage, just waiting for him,” he taunted.

Fellow Canadian John Candy played the iconic role of Barf, half-man, half-dog, in the movie.

So will a Spaceballs 2 eventually come out? Only time will tell.
