“Sharknado: The 4th Awakens” Pays Tribute to Star Wars in New Official Poster

Syfy’s unexpected TV hit Sharknado has released the official title for the fourth installment in the franchise called The 4th Awakens. And in case it wasn’t obvious, this film is paying homage to one of the biggest movies of all time, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’s also doing so with its official poster, sporting a strong resemblance to the one for the seventh Star Wars film.

On the poster, you can see many of the cast members like Ian Ziering (who plays Fin, the main character seen throughout the film) and Tara Reid (who plays April, the mystery character who everyone votes for to live or die) alongside flying sharks and cows ready to be chainsawed. There’s a lot more going on in the Sharknado poster than in the Star Wars one, however it still can be recognized immediately as a tip-of-the-hat to one of the most successful sci-fi franchises on planet Earth.

Other stars who will be making a cameo in The 4th Awakens include Vince Neil, Wayne Newton, Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman, Dr. Drew Pinsky, Corey Taylor of Slipknot, Stacey Dash, and David “Bud Bundy” Faustino.

Sharknado: The 4th Awakens will debut on July 31st at 8/7c on Syfy.
