The crew of the U.S.S. Dwight D. Eisenhower re-created the trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” to impressive effect in a parody released Thursday.
“Sea Wars: The IKE Awakens” trades in the film’s cast for crew members, X-Wings for Navy jets, and the droid BB-8 for a mop bucket. With the film’s score and a few special effects to add in Kylo Ren’s three-pronged lightsaber and some TIE fighters, the parody nails the look and tone of the film’s first teaser.
According to the Washington Post, the parody was created by Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Alex Delgado, a sailor on the ship.
“The Force Awakens” is directed by J.J. Abrams and stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow, with Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker reprising their roles from previous “Star Wars” films.
The highly anticipated seventh installment in the “Star Wars” franchise hits theaters Dec. 18.
