'Star Wars' Parody Features Emma Stone, Seth Rogen, Andy Samberg (Video)
Lucasfilm released a video for Stand Up to Cancer spoofing its famous space epic.
It turns out that if Emma Stone, Seth Rogen, Aziz Ansari, Bill Hader, Ed Helms, Ken Jeong, Zach Galifianakis, Jaime King and Andy Samberg were cast in the Star Wars films, they would have been the funniest films ever.
Lucasfilm gathered together some of today’s most hilarious actors to spoof the space epic for a video for Stand Up to Cancer. Probably not coincidentally, the clip made its way to the internet at the same time that the Star Wars: The Complete Saga was released on Blu-ray.
The well-edited video matches up memorable scenes from the film with video of the stars re-enacting the scenes. The clip has plenty of golden moments, and some of our favorites include Galifianakis’ Princess Leia and Jeong’s Lando Calrissian. And obviously, the surprise appearance by Star Wars alum Samuel L. Jackson.
The star-studded video is part of the Use the Force for Good campaign. It launched in September, and aims to raise awareness about cancer research through the use of videos and new Star Wars-themed t-shirts.
The campaign is also partnering with eBay to offer unique Star Wars items like a one-of-a-kind Star Wars edition 2012 Volkswagen Passat and a once-in-a-lifetime experience: dinner with filmmakers George Lucas, Chris Columbus, Francis Ford Coppola, Philip Kaufman and John Lasseter. The charity auction runs September 16 through September 23rd.
