We knew they could act, but the stars of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ — yes, BB8 included, can also totally carry a tune. Yes, there’s video proof!
Even Chewy can sing a cappella! The cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens headed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Dec. 15 and what better way to promote the film than have them all sing a Brady Bunch-style video? And yes, we mean them all. The Roots and Jimmy Fallon were joined by Star Troopers, Chewy, BB8, R2D2, along with actual actors, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford. Watch the video!
Everyone has their own way of celebrating the return of the Force, and for Jimmy Fallon, it was creating this amazing video. It’s the perfect way for all the cast — newcomers and alum alike — to all get on the same page and pay tribute by singing along, in perfect harmony, to all the “ba ba ba ba ba ba’s” of Star Wars. Naturally, the score of the film is famously done by John Williams and we have to say, he’d probably be proud!
The film, which hits theaters on Dec. 18, is already becoming all the rave and brought a plethora of stars out for the world premiere on Dec. 14. There, the stars that are fans paid tribute by wearing an outfit or a famous hairstyle to honor it. Sofia Vergara and model Karrueche Tran both rocked classic Princess Leia buns in their hair, while Joseph Gordon-Levitt went all Yoda (face paint, ears, the whole nine). Rainn Wilson dressed up as a Jedi, with his son wearing a Boba Fett helmet. Needless to say, every Star Wars fan can not wait to see this movie.
