Adam Driver Brings Kylo Ren, Aladdin & More To 'Saturday Night Live'

"Star Wars" fans don't have to wait until 2017's "Episode VIII" to see more of Adam Driver's Kylo Ren.

The "Girls" alum reprised his role as Commander of the First Order during his inaugural hosting gig on "Saturday Night Live” this weekend.

In an "Undercover Boss" spoof, Adam played Kylo (disguised as radar technician Matt) getting the inside scoop on how his employees really feel about his leadership.

"You get so caught up in restoring the galaxy to its rightful state that you miss what's going on behind-the-scenes," Adam's Kylo says in a mock confessional. "I'm looking forward to having some real talk with some real folks."

Predictably, Kylo's brief run as a lowly technician doesn't end well for his staff.

Taking on another famed Disney character, Adam played Aladdin attempting to enjoy a magic carpet ride with Jasmine (Cecily Strong).

The pair sang the 1992 movie's theme song, "A Whole New World" – or attempted to – with interruptions including a large bird, a missile, and an airplane dumping its lavatory waste (romance!).

Another hilarious sketch (complete with a Liev Schreiber cameo) mocked the Golden Globe awards and the recipients' acceptance speech habits of telling their children, "If you're watching this, go to bed!"

Adam and Vanessa Bayer played married screenwriters partying hard after their first Globes win, while their children (Kate McKinnon and Kyle Mooney) dutifully wait for their parents to come home.
