Even Wookiees can sing Christmas carols.
The holiday classic "Silent Night" has gotten a "Star Wars" spin, thanks to the YouTube account How It Should Have Ended and viral video creator James Covenant. Their joint project features Chewbacca singing the carol, but instead of getting actor Peter Mayhew to do it himself, they updated audio created by web designer Scott Anderson in 1999 that splices together sound bites from the space opera films to form the song.
As you can imagine, Chewbacca's roaring isn't exactly beautiful or always on key. It is entertaining to see how musical his sounds can be with a little help, though. The original didn't need much improving, but the new video features footage that does add to the fun. It shows Han Solo (Harrison Ford) making a cameo and hilariously scolding his companion.
The Force and the Christmas spirit make for a powerful combination.
The Imperial Forces -- under orders from cruel Darth Vader (David Prowse) -- hold Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) hostage, in their efforts to quell the rebellion against the Galactic Empire. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford), captain of the Millennium Falcon, work together with the companionable droid duo R2-D2 (Kenny Baker) and C-3PO (Anthony Daniels) to rescue the beautiful princess, help the Rebel Alliance, and restore freedom and justice to the Galaxy.
