“The Tonight Show” host gives franchise the Bee Gees treatment in viral clip
As if “Star Wars” record-breaking box office wasn’t enough to prove the Disney-owned franchise is still viable, Jimmy Fallon is here to drive it home with a song .
The “Tonight Show” host and his meticulous editors cut a clip package featuring scenes from all existing “Star Wars” films set to the tune of the Bee Gees’ 1977 hit “Stayin’ Alive.”
Princess Leia, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader make cameos from the original trilogy of films, while Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, Samuel L. Jackson and Hayden Christensen represent the early-2000’s pack of movies.
“We thought we would show our excitement the only way we know how, by editing footage from the ‘Star Wars’ movies,” Fallon said.
Don’t miss the 1:09 mark when Vader crushes the high note. Watch the video here.
