Unless you’ve been living in a galaxy far far away, you probably have heard that Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters this weekend. While most people will be clamoring to see the new sci-fi flick, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are trying their hardest to get people to see their new comedy Sisters instead.
During Thursday’s episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, co-stars Ike Barinholtz, Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph, and writer Paula Pell joined the former Saturday Night Live stars in using Star Wars action figures to try and convince people to check out their latest film.
Most of the guests at least attempted to play along with the bit (Dratch has pretty awesome Chewbacca roar), but Poehler wasn’t having any of it. The Burlington native called upon her dark side and did not shy away from hating on Star Wars.
“I don’t care about Star Wars and I never f–king did!” Poehler said. “I’m tired of pretending. I don’t care about it.”
She later added, “I’m so sick of it.”
Too bad Poehler’s not a fan because, with all this hate that she’s throwing around, she’d definitely make a great Emperor Palpatine.
