HBO First Look: Star Wars

Jan. 12, 2002

George Lucas doesn’t care about your feelings.

… At least not this George Lucas.

The HBO “First Look” skit features some … ahem … unreleased footage from Episode II: Attack of the Clones, which entered theaters in 2002.

One of the biggest storylines about the production involved members of the pop band NSYNC filming sequences for the movie (which was true — the scenes were cut).

“SNL” stretched that reality to the max by reimagining NSYNC’s scenes as Star Wars-themed music numbers.

“Just forget about NSYNC. You won’t even notice them,” Lucas (Darrell Hammond) says.

But there’s NSYNC — episode host Josh Hartnett and castmembers Jimmy Fallon, Chris Kattan, Horatio Sanz and Jeff Richards — dancing and gyrating with their lightsabers.

“In order to save the university from tyranny and oppression, we have to … let NSYNC kick the funk out, nizzety-new-school style,” Obi-Wan Kenobi (Seth Myers) says.

The boy bandmates sing:

Oh girl, it ain’t over yet/ You’ve come to zap my heart like you were Boba Fett

Without you, I feel so alone/ Like I was attacked, attacked by clones

I’m a Jedi knight, in these Jedi days/ I can’t forget these Jedi ways

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

These words are fresh, I think you’re dope/Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, cause you’re my only hope

To top it off, there’s also “cameos” from members of the Jedi Council, including Alf, Mayor McCheese, Harry Potter, Cartman from South Park, and Monica Lewinski (Rachel Dratch).
