This humorous spoof trailer imagines how Star Wars Episode 7 could turn out if German director Michael Haneke was the man tasked with the job of directing the blockbuster.
Haneke, whose film Amour was recently nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, is well-known for his bleak and disturbing style and his movies often focus on the problems and failures of society. This parody trailer takes the theme of Amour and teleports it into the realm of the Star Wars saga, so what you get is the elderly Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia struggling to take care of their ailing father Darth Vader – who as you can imagine is a bit of a handful.
Even if you haven’t seen Amour, it is still an amusing spoof, look out for the Chewbacca cameo!
Poor old Luke Skywalker, he definitely has his work cut out for him!
