Here’s one way to get ready for the premiere of the first Star Wars theatrical release in 10 years—cosplay while playing those familiar tunes on the piano. Composer Sonya Belousova teamed up with director Tom Grey and cinematographer Stephen Paar to recreate those famous sounds with a twist. It’s part of Piano Player’s Youtube series, which includes medleys from other pop culture staples including Doctor Who, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead.
In the 10-minute video, Belousova performs the ultimate Star Wars medley with excerpts that include the title theme, “Princess Leia’s Theme” and the “Imperial March” while donning the costumes of Han Solo, Princes Leia, and even Darth Vader.
However, the star of the video might be the tricked out pianos made to look like R2-D2 and Millennium Falcon. For customized instruments, they look pretty accurate. The aptly colored lightsabers surrounding the scene may have also helped.
