Watch Star Wars spoof ‘Sisters: The Farce Awakens’
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is released this month. This is news to no one (the anticipation levels it’s inducing almost trump Christmas excitement, thumbs up for fandom fever).
What you might have missed, however, is that fact that a film staring Amy Poehler and Tina Fey (about two women who decide to throw one last party in their parents house before they sell it) is also hitting cinemas this month.
Armed with this knowledge, Poehler and Fey decided to parody a Star Wars featurette that was showcased at Comic-Con in July.
Maya Rudolph also features in the spoof, doing her best impression of Chewbacca (basically, makes some throaty sounds) while wearing what looks like a gorilla suit. There’s also an R2-D2 reference that will probably make you snort-laugh.
The video successfully hammers home the message that Star Wars is not the only film we should be flocking to cinemas to see this month.
Fey and Poehler have even created a characteristically deadpan hashtag – #youcanseethemboth.
