Celebs Return to a Galaxy Far Far Away to fight Cancer
About two months ago the non-profit organization Stand Up 2 Cancer partnered with Star Wars to produce an unforgettable celebrity laden homage to some of the most memorable scenes from the classic sci-fi franchise. With the help of Aziz Ansari, Zach Galifianakis, Bill Hader, Ed Helms, Ken Jeong, Jaime King, Seth Rogen, Andy Samberg and Emma Stone, the video was an instant viral success, reaching almost a million views in the last sixty days.
Drawing on the success of the first video, the Star Wars youtube channel has released a second “Behind the Scenes” installment with more outtakes and bloopers from the original shoot inter-spersed with personal stories from the stars on how cancer has effected their own lives.
The result is funny, informative, and heart-felt all in a concise two minutes and twenty-six seconds.
