Spaceballs 2

This is an odd note, but: Do you remember the sequel to Spaceballs?

I recall as a kid really wondering if the fourth wall breaking gag that Yogurt made near the end of the movie – “Spaceballs 2: The Search For More Money” – would ever actually happen.

For one nation, it sort of did.

From Wikipedia:

In September 2004, news about a sequel, parodying the Star Wars prequel trilogy, appeared on the internet. It was rumored that there was going to be a sequel entitled Spaceballs 3: The Search for Spaceballs 2, but the sequel turned out to be a hoax.

In 1989, the movie Martians Go Home was distributed in the Italian market as Balle Spaziali 2 – La vendetta (Balle Spaziali being the localized title of Spaceballs). – article

I can find no evidence of the original Martians Go Home, nor its Italian variant, on youtube. The cast listing on imdb is a hodge-podge of B-actors of the period, as well as some low-end stand up comedians.

Martians Go Home

My one hope is that, with a title like “Space Balls 2: The Vendetta”, it ends with Randy Quaid’s character beaten by Martian felons.
