“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is back, but not quite the way you remember it. Fresh off their Yoda-inspired hit “SEAGULLS (Stop It Now),” Bad Lip Reading has turned their attention to “Episode VII,” and “Star Wars” legend Mark Hamill has hopped aboard for the ride.
In the video, Hamill lends his voice to Han Solo in a killer impression. Though Han Solo gets much of the attention, characters like Rey, Finn and General Leia all get the spotlight as well. Hilariously, the video also gives voice to characters like Chewbacca and BB-8, who becomes a gruff droid named Ricky now that he can “speak.”
The video closes with a remembrance of Carrie Fisher, who played Leia Organa from the original trilogy through “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” Fisher tragically passed away in December 2016 from a heart attack.
Directed by Rian Johnson, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” — the next film in the “Star Wars” saga — features returning cast members Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie and Andy Serkis. They’re joined by such franchise newcomers as Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran.
