SNL reveals Star Wars: The Force Awakens auditions from Jon Hamm, Emma Stone & more.

George Lucas recently told Vanity Fair of how he did not want to be involved with making another Star Wars film as it was “not much fun” when you “go to make a movie and all you do is get criticised.” It turns out, the director did have a couple of ideas of where Star Wars episode VII should go, they just didn’t sit well with the new rights owners at Disney. “The issue was, they looked at the stories, and they said we want to make something for the fans,” he told CBS. “All I wanted to do was tell the story of what happened. “They weren’t that keen to have me involved anyway.The professional looking clip is based around the US aircraft carrier and features some amazing footage of fighter jets mimicking X-wings from the iconic film series.A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Saturday Night Live aired a bunch of fake Star Wars auditions from the likes of Christopher Walken (as played by Kevin Spacey), Jack Lemmon (also Spacey), Walter Matthau (still Spacey), Burt Reynolds (former cast member Norm MacDonald), Barbra Streisand (former cast member Ana Gasteyer), and Richard Dreyfuss (former cast member and now announcer Darrell Hammond), among others. If I get in there I’m just going to cause trouble because they’re not going to do what I want them to do, and I don’t have the control to do that anymore.

The final part of the clip shows the Star Wars logo rebranded as Sea Wars, with the line “The Ike Awakens” referencing the nickname of their vessel, the Eisenhower. Now, with a new Star Wars movie just weeks ago, SNL brought the concept back, but with an added twist: real stars, including Jon Hamm, Emma Stone, Michael Buble, and Force Awakens cast members John Boyega and Daisy Ridley, participated in the sketch alongside the celebrity impressions. All that would do is muck everything up.” The 71-year-old went on to describe the long-running franchise as a family based soap-opera that revolves around family problems (i.e. So there’s Ridley reading a scenes with Cecily Strong’s Sofia Vergara and the real Michael Buble; Boyega sarcastically laughing at the idea of a black stormtrooper, a dig at the racist comments made about his participation in the film; Hamm auditioning to play “Hamm Solo”; Stone referencing the controversy that surrounded her being cast as a woman with Asian heritage in this year’s flop Aloha; and impressions of Javier Bardem (cast member Beck Bennett), Shaquille O’Neal (cast member Jay Pharoah), George Lucas (cast member Bobby Moynihan), and even PEOPLE Sexiest Man alive David Beckham (cast member Taran Killam), who kicks BB-8.

When you break up with somebody, the first rule is no phone calls. “The second rule, you don’t go over to their house and drive by to see what they’re doing, The third one is you don’t show up at their coffee shop and say, ‘You are going to burn it…’ You just say ‘Nope, gone, history, I’m moving forward.’” Are we glad Lucas didn’t get to direct the film?
