Watch: SNL Takes on the STAR WARS Trailer with Elderly Han, Luke, and Leia

     December 7, 2014


It wasn’t necessarily a surprise given that the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer debut was a massive cultural event, but last night’s James Franco-hosted episode of Saturday Night Live premiered its own version of the Star Wars trailer.  The crux of the joke is that the returning cast members (whom we didn’t glimpse in the official trailer) are all quite old now, and SNL’s take on their return is pretty great.  Taran Killam’s “old Harrison Ford” voice is spot on, and Bobby Moynihan makes for a swell “old Leia”.  Seeing as how it will be a while until we see another official Star Wars trailer (probably attached to Avengers: Age of Ultron), this’ll do for now.

Watch the SNL Star Wars trailer after the jump.  Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters on December 18, 2015.
