After a long, slow, painful wait, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is on your doorstep. The most anticipated film of the year (and possibly of any other) hits theaters on Friday, with some advanced screenings taking place tomorrow.
If that alone isn’t enough to make you giddy, however, we’ve got something that could put you over the top: A 90-second, acapella Star Wars medley performed by Jimmy Fallon, The Roots, and the cast of the upcoming film! On its own, the Star Wars soundtrack is enough to stir up nostalgia and excitement in movie fans everywhere, but this joyous, infectious rendition is something special. Watch it from beginning to end and it’s all but guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
The set list (in order) includes the Opening Theme, the Imperial March, the Mos Eisley Cantina, and the Throne Room Theme Song, and there are some fun twists along the way.
It’s not the first time that Fallon and the Tonight Show crew have created a Hollywood Squares-style acapella jam, but with all due respect to Miley Cyrus’ We Can’t Stop, Queen’s We Are The Champions, and any other songs that have received this treatment, this has to be the most fun of the bunch.
So many stars got in on this that it’s tough to list them all, but suffice it to say that the chorus includes Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, BB-8, four storm troopers, C-3P0, R2-DT, and a partridge in a pear tree.
Happy Holidays, and may the Force be with you.
