Oscars 2016: Star Wars parody video
Star Wars: The Force Awakens heads into Oscars weekend with five total nominations — including nods for best original score, best editing, and best visual effects — and its very own parody.
The folks from Above Average created Star Wars: The Force of Abrams, a spoof that imagines what a movie about Star Wars director J.J. Abrams — and his penchant for resurrecting popular sci-fi properties — might look like.
“I’m J.J. Abrams,” an actor playing Abrams says in the trailer. “I was raised to do one thing: fix movie franchises.” The trailer, a recreation of the full Star Wars teaser, shows Abrams taking a stab at Pirates of the Caribbean, Indiana Jones, and The Hobbit.
