Daisy Ridley joined Jimmy Fallon on Monday with a unique way to plug her new movie “Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker.”
The woman who plays new Jedi hero Rey rapped her way through all eight existing “Star Wars” movie in less than three minutes. Some pretty good bars below — and in the video above.
Ridley really earned that pyro at the end.
We pasted the full lyrics below — they are courtesy of Fallon’s excellent digital team. Pretty good visual cue card job by the “Tonight Show” host himself, by the way.
Said a long time ago in a galaxy far far away a
Guy named Vader tried to kidnap a Rebel Princess Leia
So she employed a droid to record her a quick note, she said
“Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.” Go!
Hyperspace zoom, sent off some battle plans in an R2
C-3PO’s saying they’re doomed, until they’re bought by a farmer named Luke
His Force is strong Obi-Wan hasn’t heard that name in long
Solo shoots first, don’t say that I’m wrong
It took him twelve parsecs for his Kessel Run
Well, sure. Chewie was charting the course
Luke learned the way of the Force
Blew up the Death Star, he had no remorse
He got a medal, he’s ready for more
Strike back, Rebels on Hoth are attacked
Yoda shows up and talks backwards Battled with Boba Fett, put up a fight but then Han got froze in carbonite, brr
Wasn’t the plan, suddenly Luke is in need of a hand
Lando Calrissian led them to slaughter
And Darth Vader said to Luke
I am your father
What?! Jabba the Hutt, gotta admit that bikini was hot
Yoda is dying, yes that’s why I’m crying
Take this any longer I simply cannot
You were quite hideous
Vader protected his kid, I’m not kidding, I’m serious
Blew up a Death Star, ’cause it was a trap
Shout out to Ewoks, ’cause they had our back
Back in the day
Little boy Anakin loved to pod race
Padmé escaped, Darth Maul went ape
The ending for Qui-Gon Jin wasn’t so great
Attack of the clones
Ten years pass, Anakin’s grown
He falls in love but his master is captured
His mother is killed and then that spells disaster
Anakin loses an arm to Dooku
Twins in the carriage
And Vader breaks through!
I’m trying to think… Who’d I forget? What’s his name?
Meesa called Jar Jar Binks!
Now to today
Jumping ahead to a scrapper named Rey (Hey!)
Teamed up with Poe and a Stormtrooper Finn
Who betrayed the First Order, so we let him in
Solo vs. Solo, Han met his fate
Rose got to work
Kylo won’t put on a shirt
Kylo is kind of a flirt
Tracked down Luke he was giving me hate
Until he saved the Resistance on Crait
Now Skywalker’s gone
But faith in the Force remains strong
Skywalker always lives on
You can’t stop me, I’m a Jedi from Jakku
Fight the Dark Side from Tatooine to Naboo
Let go of everything that you fear to lose
Be the spark the lights the fire and May The Force Be With You
“Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker” comes out in theaters on Dec. 20.
