Time Bandits

Kevin (Craig Warnock) and the dwarves escape their cell in the middle of nowhere, and are getting their miniature butts kicked by the Evil Genius (David Warner) when their employer, God aka the Supreme Being (Ralph Richardson) appears and the Evil Genius is blown up. One crumb of evil is left behind, and follows Kevin back to his home. It starts a fire in which his parents are killed. Sean Connery (also seen as King Agamemnon) shows up as a fireman and puts out the fire, and casts him a conspiratorial wink.
Thanks to Tuxxer, who adds "See Kenny Baker, aka R2-D2, outside of his can!"
