Mission to Chord Mantell: 50 guitars recreate the Star Wars theme

because Louis-Servais is clearly an ambitious fellow, and also, given the pandemic, had a lot of time on his hands, he didn’t merely arrange the movie’s main theme – he also took on Yoda’s theme, Han Solo and Princess Leia’s theme, Darth Vadar’s theme and everyone’s favorite, the Empire Strikes Back theme.

Given France’s strict COVID guidelines at the time of production, each guitar player shot themselves at home, with Louis-Servais compiling the results.

‘Will this ode to life succeed in bringing courage back to the hearts of earthlings?’ Louis-Servais asks at the top of the performance video.

Who knows. But it’s a pretty killer creation.
