Today is finally the day! Happy Star Wars Day, everybody! May 4th marks the unofficial holiday for the science fiction saga that changed movie history forever! Over the years, classic rock and Star Wars have crossed paths many times!
In celebration, and in the spirit of this special occasion, we’ve dug up what might be one of our favorite Star Wars/Classic rock crossovers! It features Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, and The Beatles Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band.
The title of the parody is Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans, and it’s beyond awesome!
They’ve reworked the lyrics to fit the Star Wars theme perfectly, and will bring a smile to any Beatles, or Star Wars fan’s face!
On May 25th Star Wars will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the release of A New Hope, while Sgt. Pepper’s will be celebrating its 50th anniversary a few days later on June 1st.
Check out the amazing parody down below, and Happy Star Wars Day!
