Since both franchises have been around for roughly the same amount of time, NBC’s sketch-comedy institution “Saturday Night Live” has had a long history of parodying Star Wars.

This past weekend’s guest host Felicity Jones (lead actor in December’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”) brought with her a whole new opportunity to poke fun at everyone’s favorite epic space opera. In her opening monologue, Jones (who played Rebel recruit Jyn Erso in the movie) reunited with her co-star Saw Gerrera– played in the sketch by SNL regular Kenan Thompson. And then, in a pleasant surprise appearance, former cast member and “30 Rock” creator Tina Fey showed up in Princess Leia hologram form.

WATCH OPENING MONOLOGUE:

During the episode Felicity also trotted our her best Disney Princess impression, in a sketch skewering Hollywood’s (and men’s in general) intolerance of even the smallest amount of weight gain from the fairer sex.
