The a cappella pop group was accompanied by a 65 piece symphony orchestra to sing portions of John Williams‘ epic Star Wars score, which will be ringing in fans’ ears again soon when the franchise’s newest installment, The Force Awakens, comes out in theaters next month.
After host Jennifer Lopez introduced a new clip from Force, Harrison Ford appeared onstage to remind the audience, many of whom might not know John Williams by name, of his many other famous scores they would certainly recognize, such as from Jaws, E.T. and, of course, Indiana Jones. He then let Pentatonix take it from there, and that they did – with singer Kirstin Maldonado even wearing Princess Leia-esque buns in her hair.
The group’s beatboxer Kevin Olusola recently talked to Rolling Stone about his own Star Wars obsession, saying, “When we’re on tour, I’m planning on re-watching each movie before we go onstage; then I’ll be ready to go for when the newest one comes out next month.”
