This teaser video from agency AKQA for the Xbox 360’s upcoming Kinect Star Wars game features comedy actor Chris Pratt (from TV show Parks & Recreation) taking over the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi. He has a lightsaber duel with Darth Vader in a homage to the famous scene from the movie Episode IV: A New Hope.

The new game lets players explore the Star Wars universe (featuring iconic settings, characters and action) with no controller. Check out the video below:
