Epic Christmas Lights Display Set to 'Star Wars' Themes Raises Money for Charity [WATCH]
Star Wars fans may faint when they watch this video. A house in San Francisco is now one of the frontrunners for best holiday lights display for its epic Star Wars production. The display follows different themes and scores that John Williams composed for the beloved franchise. And to make things even better, the whole project raises money for charity. Now that's some Christmas spirit for you.
As Mashable notes, YouTuber Tom BetGeorge strung up 100,000 lights for the display that raises money for people who are homeless and in need. It runs in sequence to the iconic opening theme music as well as other scenes from the movie (yes, the jazzy Cantina theme is included). The highlight comes near the 1:30 mark when two lights on top of the house replicate a light saber battle from Revenge of the Sith. The Millennium Falcon flies by just before Darth Vader's theme kicks into full swing. And if you're wondering why there's a guitar, piano and drum set, it's because BetGeorge is a music teacher (they play the actual notes during the Cantina part).
Check out the full video below and prepared to be amazed.
Recently, Music Times also shared some footage of a house that synced its holiday lights to Disney's Frozen hit, "Let It Go." Check that video out, and let MT know which one you like better in the comments below.
