Emma Stone, Seth Rogen reenact scenes from ‘Star Wars,’ as William Shatner disses films

“Star Wars” fans are having kind of a rough month. News that George Lucas had made even more tweaks to the “Star Wars” saga for the Blu-rays — a second Darth Vader “Nooo!” and Ewok blinking — sent some fans into despair. (OK, no one really cares about the Ewoks.)

But here’s something that may brighten their day.

Emma Stone, Seth Rogen, Bill Hader and a whole bunch of other funny celebs reenacted some of the original trilogy’s famous scenes for the Blu-rays to benefit Stand Up To Cancer.

Stone does a great Admiral Ackbar, while Hader takes an accurate yet annoying turn as a tauntaun . Zach Galifianakis, Andy Samberg, Aziz Ansari, Ken Jeong and Ed Helms also make appearances.

What could ruin a “Star Wars” fan’s day now? Wait. I detect a disturbance in the force. William Shatner has stirred up the “Star Trek” vs. “Star Wars” debate again by calling the films just “special effects” and “derivative?” No!

Yes, it seems that Captain Kirk couldn’t help but jump into the mix.

“‘Star Trek’ had relationships and conflict among the relationships and stories that involved humanity,” the actor said in an interview posted to his Twitter. “‘Star Wars’ is derivative of ‘Star Trek.’ ”

While he admits that “Star Wars” had better special effects years ago, the new J.J. Abrams “Trek” film has taken care of that.

“‘Star Wars’ has nothing to stand on,” he concludes.

He also, for no apparent reason, disses the ladies of “Star Wars,” saying the “Trek” “girl were prettier.”

Why, Bill? Why?
