That was such an "Eighties" movie, I'm not sure a sequel is gonna translate well in the 21st century ... but I'm still holding out hope!
I remember a long time ago (I was still in high school, I believe) there was some kind of entertainment report on the radio, and they mentioned that Brooks was working on a sequel entitled "Spaceballs 3: In Search of Spaceballs 2". I wonder if there was ever any truth to that ...

Can someone please tell me the point of all this? I love Spaceballs as much as the next guy but really a sequel sounds pointless and is a stupid idea. Mel Brooks really hasn't made a truly good movie since Spaceballs, what can you do with a sequel really? John Candy has passed and that means no more Barf the mawg (or is it mog?).

Who's to say that Moranis, Pullman, or anyone else will resume their roles? I would imagine that the new Spaceballs movie would be a spoof of the newer trilogy.
An interesting and comedic side note: with all the Star Wars DVD hype, the Radio Shack at the Yonge/Eglinton Centre in Downtown TOronto was showing Spaceballs on their TV sets. I found that to be hilarious.

This reminds me of that headline The Onion had years ago (just before the release of Phantom Menace, actually) that had Jonathan Lipnicki (the little kid with the spiky hair from Jerry Maguire) cast as Young Dark Helmet in a SpaceBalls prequel.
