The original “Spaceballs” was a beloved 1987 parody of sci-fi franchises like “Star Wars,” “Star Trek,” and “Alien,” featuring a memorable cast including Bill Pullman, John Candy, and Rick Moranis. Plot details for the sequel are still under wraps, but with the combined talents of Gad, Brooks, and the writing duo behind “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem,” fans can expect a hilarious and irreverent continuation of the “Spaceballs” legacy.
