WATCH: This Star Wars a cappella by the cast of The Force Awakens is just fantastic

December 19th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Oh my God, no matter what you watch today – or, arguably, ever – it’ll not be as good as this.

Jimmy Kimmel got the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Roots together to do this simply fantastic a cappella version of the Star Wars theme(s) and it had made our day.

Oh and just wait for Adam Driver’s appearance. And keep your eyes peeled to the very end.

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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
