‘Star Wars’ Fever Has Taken Over The Internet In These Videos

If you think you’re excited about Star Wars coming back to theaters for The Force Awakens, it probably pales in comparison to the people spotlighted in these videos. As excitement for the newest chapter of the massive saga comes to a fever pitch, even celebrities are getting in on the action.

Ariana Grande decided to take on the age old question in a parody video, asking “who shot first?” Fans of the franchise will know there’s plenty of controversy about whether it was Han Solo or Greedo who fired off the first shot - especially since when the original trilogy was remastered for DVD, the scene was changed. Grande takes a definitive stance.

 

 

MTV got more people involved in their Star Wars excitement, asking some of the biggest names in Hollywood to re-enact key scenes throughout the franchise when they attended different press days. Elijah Wood has the opening lines memorized, while The Mockingjay Part 2 cast members do their best Chewbacca, Bryce Dallas Howard demonstrates how to use a lightsaber, and more:

 

 

Oscar Isaac, one of the stars of The Force Awakens, even got in on the fun during a recent visit to GQ. Way back in Saturday Night Live’s second season, Bill Murray performed a skit in which he sang a jazzy lounge style Star Wars song. Isaac puts his own spin on it, complete with a new verse about the film in which he appears:

 

 

Isaac isn’t the only member of the new film’s cast to become an internet sensation with his vocals though. Almost all of the main cast members appear in a very special video with Jimmy Fallon and the Roots. The group performs an a capella version of the Star Wars theme music, and it might be your favorite thing you watch (before you go and see the movie, of course):

 

 

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is in theaters December 18.
