While the “Sisters” marketing campaign #YouCanSeeThemBoth reminds fans they can watch the new Amy Poehler and Tina Fey comedy as well as “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” this weekend, Poehler revealed what she thinks about the “Star Wars” franchise Thursday on “Late Night With Seth Meyers.”

The “Sisters” cast appeared on “Late Night” Thursday in anticipation of the movie’s Dec. 18 opening — which is the same day “The Force Awakens” hits theaters. Meyers gave Fey, Poehler, Ike Barinholtz, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch and Paula Pell “Star Wars” action figures, prompting them to use the characters to convince viewers to go see “Sisters” this weekend instead of the cult favorite.

Holding up her action figure, Poehler said, “Okay, I’ve read this guy’s name three times, I don’t remember it. I don’t care. I don’t care about ‘Star Wars.’ I never f—ing did. I’m sorry. I’m tired of pretending. I’m tired of pretending. I don’t care about it.”

Barinholtz was given a Kylo Ren action figure, noting that Adam Driver portrays this character in “The Force Awakens.” “Why would you see a movie with the guy from ‘Girls’ when you could see a movie with the guy from ‘The Mindy Project’?” Barinholtz asked.

With PZ-4CO, Fey joked that her character’s name seemed Italian. “I am a creature. I don’t have any a relatives, but if I did I wish I would have a two sisters,” Fey said in a thick Italian accent.

While Poehler may not be first in line to see “The Force Awakens” Friday, many people are hyped about the latest “Star Wars.” J.J. Abrams’ blockbuster scored the biggest opening day-gross ever in the U.K. and Ireland on Thursday, reining in $14.3 million on its first day in the two countries.

This is not the first time Poehler has commented on the franchise. Last year, when presenting Fey with an award at the Elle Women in Hollywood event, she compared her friendship with Fey to an iconic “Star Wars” partnership. “She is my Han Solo – I am her Chewbacca,” Poehler said. “Many times she’s the only one who can understand what I’m saying, and I will destroy anyone who tries to hurt her.”
