Say your new comedy is facing off against a little something called “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” for its opening weekend. What’s a female comedy duo to do? In the case of “Sisters” stars Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, the answer is to take the challenge head-on and mock the lightsaber-weilding juggernaut. In this hilarious new spoof video, Fey, Poehler and their co-stars perfectly send up the super-reverent behind-the-scenes video J.J. Abrams released at Comic-Con this year, with plenty of tongue-in-cheek nods to nostalgia, practical effects in filmmaking, the “Sisters” legacy and fake British accents.

I don’t know, I think Maya Rudolph does a great Chewbacca. And you have to appreciate their hashtag campaign, #YouCanSeeThemBoth. Seems like the shrewdest strategy.
