Felicity Jones Entertains the (Storm) Troops in First SNL 2017 Promos
The new year is officially off and running, and SNL mercifully isn’t going to let another day go by without us thinking about Rogue One. Jyn Erso herself, Felicity Jones makes her SNL debut in the first official 2017 promos, and wouldn’t you know it, likes to reference that Star Wars everyone seems so fond of.
Our first look at Jones’ SNL debut borrows a few font choices from Lucasfilm, and finds that even the star of Rogue One can’t resist a few “trooper” jokes to an audience of those white-clad bucket-heads. In addition to Jones making her SNL debut, musical guest Sturgill Simpson is also making his first appearance on the long-running NBC sketch comedy great.
Yesterday also brought word that the following week would see Master of None star Aziz Ansari making his SNL debut on January 21, joined by musical guest Big Sean.
Adam Driver’s SNL hosting brought us the classic Undercover Boss sketch, so will Jones’ debut bring us another major Star Wars sketch? Watch the promos above, and stay tuned for this weekend.
