Of course with a trailer as hot as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there is bound to be trailers that spoof, analyzes, chastises, or even criticize. Even our very own Christopher Moore made trailer spoof of his own that used Spaceballs footage, which also got the attention of various movie blogs. Now Saturday Night Live has taken notice, and made a parody of their own. They’ve already done parodies of other films this season, so it was only a matter of time before they set their sights on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
