Stand Up To Cancer’s ‘Star Wars’ Parody Features Emma Stone, Seth Rogen and More

There is nothing not to like about a group of the funniest movie and television stars of present day reciting classic lines, in character (with some liberties taken), from what is indesputably the most powerful film series ever made: Star Wars.

Actors Emma Stone, Seth Rogen, Aziz AnsariEd Helms, Ken Jeong, Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, Jamie KingZach Galifianakis and Samuel L. Jackson are all on board to benefit the charity Stand Up To Cancer. All of the fan-favorites are lampooned: Luke, Leia, Vader, Han, Chewie, Obi-Wan, Yoda, Lando, the Emperor, Uncle Owen, Admiral Ackbar… but what really takes the cake is Hader’s impression of a Taun-Taun.

Check out the video, fans of Star Wars and comedy alike. And then head on over to Stand Up to Cancer and find out that, despite the generational outbreak of cynicism, you actually can make a difference.


Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
