Lovable rogue Jimmy Fallon has done the seemingly impossible. He’s made John Williams’ incredible score even catchier – all while convincing Harrison Ford to sing in a skit. This is just too much. 🙂
Jimmy and his in-house band, The Roots, take on the most memorable beats from the Star Wars soundtrack a capella style. That alone would be quite a novelty, but as soon as they are joined by heroes-in-training Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), things start to heat up.
The dark side is represented well by Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), during a rendition of the Imperial March that also subtly recalls The Brady Bunch. The inclusion of the Droids, Chewie, a smorgasbord of stormtroopers, Carrie Fisher and even the famously media-shy Harrison Ford brings this musical gem home beautifully. Thank you, Jimmy!
