Swedish scifi comedy: Kenny Starfighter

January 27th, 2009 by Jarmo Puskala

In 1997 a Swedish tv series introduced the world, or at least some nordic part of it, to Kenny Starfighter, a dim-witted galactic superhero. I’d never heard about this, but now Kenny is set to return in a film titled Kenny Begins.

Kenny Starfighter is probably the worst student the Hero Galaxy Academy has ever had. Kenny’s parents have now grown tired of paying for his studies and give him an ultimatum. Take your exams or become a hairdresser. In pursuit of his exam grades, Kenny accidentally crash-lands on Earth.

For once I’m at lost for words, I had absolutely no idea Swedish scifi comedy existed – let alone that it was popular enough to be in theaters.The trailer below will blow your mind (in one way or another) so think carefully before clicking play.
