Disney is slamming the “inappropriate use” of “Stars Wars” characters posing with comedian Amy Schumer in a photo spread for GQ.

The “Trainwreck” actress poses as Princess Leia in her slave bikini, sucking C-3PO’s finger on the cover of GQ’s August issue. Another photo inside the magazine shows her topless in bed, smoking a cigarette between C-3PO and R2-D2, CNN reported.

Responding to numerous complaints on Twitter, the official “Star Wars” account repeated: “Lucasfilm & Disney didn’t approve, participate in or condone the inappropriate use of our characters in this manner.”

At least one original cast member expressed his support for the shoot.

“Got excited when I saw Amy Schumer and GQ Magazine pics and thought she was just cast in [episode] 8!” Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker, said on Twitter. “We should be so lucky.”
