This Thursday, Patton Oswalt will guest star on NBC's Parks and Recreation. His part may be small by some accounts -- he's a guy trying to block a city council vote via a filibuster -- but his effort is enormous. Presented with the challenge of talking about some topic indefinitely, Oswalt chose Star Wars, specifically what he feels the plot of the 2015 Disney Star Wars film should be. In this clip, Oswalt spews out eight minutes of improvised fan fiction, along with a little trivia. Simply amazing.

Spoiler alert: Boba Fett survived, and it's mainly a crazy Marvel universe crossover since Oswalt cares way more about comic books than Star Wars.
