‘Star Wars’ Teaser Riff Takes Sky-Walker Literally On ‘SNL’
It stayed a bit past its welcome, per usual, but Saturday Night Live's spoofy video take on the recently released teaser trailer for the next Star Wars arrived from a galaxy long, long ago, then landed a few good blows on the Disney juggernaut coming in a year.
