The comedian has posed in a few steamy shots in a Star Wars-themed photoshoot for the latest GQ magazine cover... but the crew in 'a galaxy far, far away' have said they did not condone the pictures.

Schumer (34) poses in the August issue wearing braids and a bikini. In the photographs, she poses topless in bed with C-3PO and R2-D2, cuddling up to the famed characters with a cigarette in her mouth.

She is also seen sucking the Star Wars droid's finger as well as putting a lightsaber in her mouth.

But the official Star Wars crew have responded to the reaction from outraged fans online and said they did not approve the 'inappropriate use' of the characters.

The company behind the sci-fi franchise tweeted: "Lucasfilm & Disney did not approve, participate in or condone the inappropriate use of our characters in this manner."

The franchise were responding to one tweet in particular which read: "I can't believe @Disney signed off on the use of @starwars characters/props in the fashion depicted in @GQMagazine."

The Star Wars team proceeded to send the same message to each fan who tweeted them about the photographs.

However, Luke Skywalker himself (or veteran actor Mark Hamill to others) had a different opinion about the steamy shots and said: "Got excited when I saw @amyschumer @GQMagazine pics & thought she was just cast in Ep 8! We should be so lucky."
