Hollywood, CA — Disney announced on Saturday that none other than First Lady Michelle Obama will be playing a supporting role in in the upcoming and highly anticipated Star Wars Episode 7. Disney says the First Lady will be playing the wife of Cloud City administrator and general in the Rebel Alliance, Lando Calrissian.

Paul Horner, who is a spokesman for Disney, spoke with CNN about Mrs. Obama’s role in the upcoming Star Wars movie. “We are excited to have Michelle Obama on board with this project. She will make a great addition to the movie,” Horner said. “The First Lady’s character will have a few scenes of dialogue. We will also see her interact with Lando Calrissian and the other members of the Rebel Alliance. She might even carry a lightsaber,” Horner laughs. “But seriously, we’re just delighted to have her on the team.”

Though not everyone is as excited as Disney to have Mrs. Obama playing a role in the film. “It’s absolutely ridiculous,” said Marvin Harris, a film critic with the New York Times. “This is just a ploy to sell more tickets and in the end it will upstage the current actors and ruin the movie. This is a decision that will be extremely frowned upon and remembered, just you wait. Disney will be wishing they never made this mistake.”

Being in front of an audience is nothing new for the First Lady. She made her acting debut on Nickelodeon’s hit kid show, iCarly and was recently seen at the Oscars presenting the award for best picture to Argo.

Star Wars returns to theaters on December 18, 2015 beginning with Star Wars Episode VII.

  1. As a role model for her daughters and the nation, it is disgusting that she is working. I haven’t seen the television show “Scandal” but I think the Michele Obama look-a-like on there is probably just there to get black votes. It is very popular with African Americans on twitter.

    I think that doing anything Star Trek related could easily backfire if the intent is to garner the introverted nerd vote for Hilary.

    I think she’ll be quite good in this, I can’t wait to see it

    It’s that time of the year again! ;)

  4. As I First Lady she ain’t much, but as an actress… the jury’s still out.

    The President must have pulled some strings to get his wife an actors equity card. You need that card to be in a movie. Mrs. Obama can do this acting thing while her husband spends his time watching the NCAA final four tournament. A marriage is stronger if the couple has some different interests.

    Michele O ain’t no lady, don’t you know? This fits perfectly with the new Disney culture. If this is remotely real I will not be attending the viewing.

    Marvin Harris, calm your tits and go smoke a much needed joint. How is this gonna increase tickets? Sure maybe by a very small proportion. This is Star Wars we are talking about. They are gonna sell tickets no matter what group of actors they put together. How about we see the final result before we start crying like its the end of the world. Dumbest quote ever.

      The problem with the world today is there are too many “zone heads” living in fantasy who fund the perverts that keep them fantasized. Wake the fuck up people and reclaim reality before you’re all turned into Soylent Green.
