Watch The Roots & The 'Star Wars' Cast Recreate The Legendary Opening Theme In A Cappella

The Roots & 'The Force Awakens' Cast Perform An A Cappella Take On The 'Star Wars' Theme

Unless you live in a galaxy, far far away, Star Wars mania has surely set upon you and yours (or at the very least, a slightly nerdy acquaintance with a penchant for sci-fi epics.) And with the film's release less than two days away, it's safe to say that we're officially at fever pitch, with lines already forming of fanboys and fangirls, all clutching their sleeping bags and rationing their food until they finally get to lay their red eyes on the anxiously-anticipated silver-screen spectacle.

With all of that in mind, the film's cast has been making the rounds, pledging their gratitude for the opportunity to be part of the undertaking and continue a cherished legacy. Tonight's stop brought them to studio 6B to mix it up with The Tonight Show crew, delving into their Star Wars musings, but then also taking the time to recreate the iconic opening theme in a pristine a cappella take with none other than the mighty Roots crew and the evening's host. Best of all, it's available for you to see just below.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters this Friday, December 18th, with limited screenings on Thursday. And if you haven't already copped your ticket, may the force be with you.
