Looks like Mark Hamill has got himself involved in some more terrifically nerdy fandom and big, dumb, furry costumes. The Star Wars icon co-stars with SNL‘s Kyle Mooney in Brigsby Bear, and now you can have a look with the trailer above.
Mooney, who also co-wrote the offbeat dramedy, stars as a zealous super-fan of the strange, dated children’s show of the film’s title. For reasons that the film—and probably the full trailer, whenever that hits—soon reveals, he’s also the only fan of the show, and he sets out to give the series the finale he passionately thinks it deserves. Claire Danes, Greg Kinnear, Matt Walsh, and Michaela Watkins also co-star. Mooney’s Good Neighbor sketch comedy co-founder Dave McCary directs, and word from Sundance is that he made something odd but also oddly affecting. If nothing else, already it’s unusual enough that this is the second Mark Hamill film I’m looking forward to this calendar year.
Brigsby Bear opens in limited release July 28.
