Friday Morning Laughs — Harrison Ford Won’t Answer ‘Star Wars’ Questions

Greetings, SocialTimes readers! A long time ago, it was Monday and Friday seemed as far, far away as another galaxy. Now, the weekend is here, bringing a fresh crop of Star Wars-themed videos that were also the week’s most-viewed, most-shared, and most likely to force weird Ewok sounds out your mouth while you laugh.

For reference, Disney announced this week that Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled for release in the summer of 2015. See two comedians’ reactions to the film below, and check out a couple more unrelated gems that also made the top of the list.
