After the many satires and spoofs surrounding the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer it seems Saturday Night Live are also riding the wave and have delivered their own humorous take on the teaser.
Seeing as the original trailer doesn’t include any appearances from iconic actors Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, SNL decided it was about time to give Star Wars fans their idea of what the returning stars may be like. The spoof pokes fun at the age of the returning characters, showing Leia in reading glasses, an aging and confused Han Solo, a Luke Skywalker struggling to walk and a Chewbacca who’s forced into wearing a dog’s surgical cone.
Unfortunately the video isn’t fully available in the UK, but you can watch some highlights below or if you live in the right area you can watch the whole thing on the NBC website.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set for release on December 18th 2015 and sees returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) joined by John Boyega (Attack the Block), Adam Driver (Girls), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), Andy Serkis (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Domhnall Gleeson (Dredd), Daisy Ridley (Silent Witness), Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave), Miltos Yerolemou (Game of Thrones), Max von Sydow (The Exorcist), Jessica Henwick (Spirit Warriors), Christina Chong (24: Live Another Day) and newcomers Crystal Clarke and Pip Andersen.
