The Rise of Skywalker opens in cinemas this week but that doesn’t mean the Force isn’t already with us. It is all around us, surveying 100 people on the street for pop culture trivia—and what better way to celebrate it than with a game of “Force Family Feud” with Jimmy Kimmel. Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Keri Russell, Kelly Marie Tran and Chewy made up the “Walkerskys” family (ha! We see what you did there), and J.J. Abrams, Daisy Ridley, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels and Naomi Ackie made up the “Vadersteins.” Wait a minute. Rey and Lando are Vaders, aka The Dark Side? Um SPOILER ALERT.
Jimmy makes for a natural Steve Harvey replacement as he introduced the game like so, “We surveyed 100 people on Hollywood Boulevard which means at least half of them were crazy.” Dang. Real talk. He also seemed to handle NSFW answers a little better than Steve Harvey judging by his reaction when the question, “What’s the worst body part to have chopped off by a lightsaber?” garnered a logical intimate answer.
If Ewan McGregor ever gets tired of playing Obi Wan, we believe Kimmel could make a comparable replacement.
The biggest shock of the evening wasn’t the fact male appendages came up (that’s inevitable in Family Feud) or really anything anyone said at all. Our biggest takeaway might actually be that Oscar Isaac—yes, Óscar Isaac Hernández Estrada—is now a TOTAL SILVER FOX. When did this happen? This man has Steve Carelled in front of our very eyes. We are shocked. We are shook. We are buying our Rise of Skywalker tickets presently.
When we weren’t distracted by this Isaac development, the game was full of little Star Wars details like the buzzer strike being made of crossed lightsabres and the winning team going home with Star Wars bedsheets (who didn’t have those in the 80s?). And it was huge surprise to hear sweet little Keri Russell cuss up a storm when she couldn’t come up with the correct answer. Keri, this is the FAMILY feud, take it down a notch. What would the Emperor think?!
After some tough questions like, “Besides Yoda, name something that starts with Yo,” (Survey says: yo’ mama!) and “Which Star Wars character would be the worst roommate?” (If you didn’t answer Jar Jar, do you even Star Wars bro?), the winning team ended up being The Dark Side aka The Vadersteins. But one Vader was noticeably absent . . .
“Apologies to Darth Damon, we ran out of time!” Jimmy said as he closed out the show. Truuue.
This isn’t the first time Star Wars has taken a modern spin (remember, it takes place “A long time ago”). Recently, Daisy Ridley did a Star Wars hip hop rap on The Tonight Show that sent the internet buzzing with sick rhymes like, “Kylo won’t put on a shirt! Kylo is kind of a flirt!”
