Star Wars Cast Does A Cappella Version of Opening Theme

Jimmy Fallon, The Roots & “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” Cast Sing “Star Wars” Medley (A Cappella)

Thank you Jimmy Fallon for another awesome a cappella feature with The Roots. I thought the Adele cover of Hello with classroom instruments was cool but this is even better. Jimmy and The Roots join Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford for an a cappella tribute to “Star Wars.”

If you haven’t seen it yet (or just feel like listening and watching again), here it is.

How awesome is that? Okay first, it sounds really awesome. Like seriously, the quality is good and it’s fun to listen to.  Secondly, the attitudes the actors bring to the video are great. It’s so much fun to watch it while you listen. It has a Hollywood Squares/Brady Bunch feel to it and we can’t help but love how much John Boyega really gets into it (cymbals are clearly his thing!). There’s some droid action and Chewie looks perpetually confused.

The Roots are the Stormtroopers and we love how Carrie gets zapped in for her part. It’s all around good, Star Wars fun and I think I might be playing this one non repeat while I clean my house and fold laundry.

I’ve watched it more than once now and I keep seeing other little things within. Jimmy Fallon has another winner with this one and I love how the cast were good sports about it. A+!
