Check out this spoof trailer shown at last month's 38th annual Cesar Awards show, France's equivalent of the Oscars.  Titled Star Wars: Episode VII - The Obscure Side of the Force, the video uses the aging Skywalker clan to re-create touching moments from the Academy Award-winning foreign movie Amour, directed by Michael Haneke.  

This is what we'd be in for if Haneke were strapped in behind the camera for the forthcoming mega-sequel instead of golden boy J.J. Abrams.

Warning: The notorious walkers in this version are far less menacing.  Have a look ...
