Guardians of the Galaxy was a major box office hit this past summer and of course, SNL found a way to highlight its success in a hilarious skit featuring host and Marvel star, Chris Pratt!
The skit started out by mentioning that “Marvel can’t fail!” Because of this, they came up with some ideas for upcoming Marvel hits that would also turn out to be largely successful! The movies included “Ant Man” and “Bus People.”
The real kicker was the preview for Marvel’s version of Star Wars where Chris actually dressed as Princess Leia (buns and all!)
