Star Wars: The Force Awakens Parody

At 7AM Pacific time this morning, Disney/Lucasfilm unveiled the very highly anticipated first teaser trailer for the new Star Wars movie directed by J.J. Abrams. Die-hard geeks waking up too early after eating a massive Thanksgiving meal lead to a wonderful selection of hilarious, goofy, smile-inducing tweets on top of all the compliments and serious discussion about the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We've collected a few of our favorite tweets, including one amazing Photoshop (seen above) of the crazy new Sith lightsaber, for your amusement. So take a look, laugh, smile, and share your Star Wars jokes with us.

Let's dive right in starting with this perfect opening rant about waking up early just to see this teaser trailer:

Here's an interesting set of tweets to end with that make me smile much more than they make me laugh:

Jokes about any lens flares and J.J. Abrams are old and tired. And we've already made fun of "The Force Awakens" title (check out this hilarious teaser trailer with Yoda) so it's fun to see some different tweets that make us laugh. As much as I take this job, and the movies I love, very seriously - I do enjoy a good chuckle at the expense of geeks going crazy (even when that's me). These Star Wars tweets are the perfect mix of absurd fandom and cinematic appreciation, poking fun at the way we're stupid excited for a bit of footage, while actually still being excited by that footage. It is the perfect tease, and I'm so glad that so many people joined in the discussion this morning. Even though it is Thanksgiving vacation. Find any other fun tweets?

    I only counted one tiny lens flare in the trailer. That's a plus.

      What gets to me is the fact that it's not even on a set where the camera may (inadvertently or otherwise) stray into some light source pointing that direction (like, say an Enterprise bridge set), but a completely CGI scene "chasing" the Falcon into the sun.

    Haha. I found and posted that lightsaber photo in the trailer comments earlier. It's hilarious. I still like the look of it though.

    I'm still trying to figure out why people are complaining about the lightsaber... are you kidding me, that thing is BAD ASS!!!! Look at that intense blade!!! And the little side sabers are cool as shit. The purpose of them?? Who gives a shit!! They are awesome. After watching this trailer a couple dozen times I see the whole sword and it reminds me of one of those big ass knight swords from Game of Thrones!! My friend thinks the dude talking sounds like Benedict Cumberbatch... here's hoping he is a surprise character and the sith we see!! That would be TITS!!! THANK YOU DISNEY AND THANK YOU JJ!!!!!
    Good shit. Everyone's a comic on twitter.
