When Star Wars: The Force Awakens was first announced, there was a lot of excitement when fanboys heard J.J. Abrams would be sitting in the director's chair!
But what would have happened if the huge project was handed to a different Hollywood director? Someone like Wes Anderson?!
Well it turns out it's not to hard to imagine, as someone has already put together a a spoof trailer of this artsy sci-fi flick, and we have to admit it's pretty perfect!
[ Video: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Teaser Trailer Is HERE! ]
Seriously, all it needed was an Instagram filter, some sans-serif font, and some artsy French music and voila! You have a Wes Anderson flick!
Ch-ch-check out the hilarious parody (below)!

Prada and Wes Anderson have joined forces again to create their newly released short film, starring the one and only Jason Schwartzman!
Titled Castello Cavalcanti, the cinematic beauty takes place in 1950’s Italy, centering around a race car driver who crashes his red sports car.
And though it’s not exactly action packed, it’s impossible for us to steal our eyes back away from the vibrant reds and yellows!
Including Jason's luxe racing gear!
Now if only they gave us a better glimpse into the designer outfits…
That would be the ultimate Holiday treat!
Check out dapper pics of the star Jason Schwartzman in the gallery (below)! Supah hot intellectual vibe!!

And no, it's not Marley and Me: The Sequel!
Quintessential romantic comedy star Jennifer Aniston has just signed on to She's Funny That Way, a Wes Anderson-produced film which also stars Owen Wilson as a Broadway director who falls for a prostitute-turned-actress!
Unfortunately, the now bright-blonde Friend is NOT playing Owen's night-walking love interest; she'll instead play the part of a therapist with an alcoholic mother.
The Peter Bogdanovich-directed movie also features the acting talents of Jason Schwartzman and Community's Alison Brie!
Sounds potentially bleak, funny, and heartfelt — we're VERY intrigued!

Amber heard the amazeballs news??
Johnny Depp just agreed to star in Wes Anderson's next film, The Grand Budapest Hotel!
Nothing like signing on with this summer's arthouse phenom to take your mind off a recent breakup!!
We don't know
much anything about TGBH but, if forced to place a wager at gunpoint, we'd bet the film centers around a quirky group of morosely existential white people who are entrenched in some sort of familial drama… or Bill Murray.
And then we'd cry, because we don't like guns in our face.

Congratulations, Mr. Anderson!!
Moonrise Kingdom just broke box office records for
steamiest man-on-man love scene highest earning arthouse film!!
After a torrent of positive reviews at the Cannes premiere, the quirky drama is a huge hit at its El Lay and NYC openings!
Moonrise is averaging $127k per theater right now, which pretty well shatters the 2005 record set by Brokeback Mountain.
Wes Anderson’s latest HIGHlariously poignant period piece stars Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton, Ed Norton, and Jason Schwartzman as eccentric adults who tirelessly track two missing children.
We expect more success for Moonrise Kingdom when it opens in more cities this weekend!

ATTEN: Ladies of France!
Be on the look out for these two tigers on the prowl!
Bill Murray and his pal, directer Wes Anderson, are in Cannes premiering their latest flick Moonrise Kingdom — AND looking for ladies!
The two gentlemen were seen at a bar talking up some lovely females from 1 AM to after 3:30 AM Thursday. We hear Mr. Murray was especially enjoying himself, and the booze, flirting with women and singing with the bars piano player!
According to our source:
"The actor was heard telling the object of his affection that he planned to give her a kiss at midnight, before realizing it was already the wee hours of the morning."
The former SNL cast member finished the
evening morning by singing Sweet Home Chicago before scampering off to bed.
Sounds like Lost in Translation wasn't too far from reality!
