Seth Rogen & Shatner reenact Stars Wars for charity
It’s a huge month for ‘Star Wars’ fans. George Lucas has announced that he is making several tweeks to the trilogy for the Blu-ray release… which some are happier about than others. But who couldn’t be happy about Emma Stone, Seth Rogen, William Shatner and others reenacting some of the most notable ‘Star Wars’ scenes for the Blu-ray special features to benefit ‘Stand Up For Cancer’?

William Shatner, as always, causes a stir by brining up the ‘Star Wars’ vs ‘Star Trek’ debate, and even worse- he calls the movies just “special effects” and derivative”.

Stone, Rogen, and Shatner aren’t the only comedians that participate in this charitable effort. Also starring in the skit is Zach Galifianakis, Andy Samberg, Aziz Ansari, Ken Jeong, and Ed Helms.

The slogan for the campaign is “Use the force for good”. The video encourages viewers to visit www.standup2cancer.org to donate.
