Star Wars and Saturday Night Live’s Long History in 14 Sketches

Saturday Night Live has always been a comic mirror of American culture, and once the Star Wars franchise entered the picture in 1977, the show was already in its second season. The linked article presents fourteen Star Wars-related SNL sketches that ultimately represent not only the show's affinity for pop culture, but the ever-presence of the film franchise in our cultural consciousness since its inception. 

Check out some of the best Star Wars-based SNL sketches here — including the above gem in which Kevin Spacey as Christopher Walken and Norm Macdonald as Burt Reynolds audition for the original— from that of the not-ready-for-primetime players to the present-day cast.
