Last night on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, JJ Abrams — director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens — revealed that we're getting a new Cantina song. And it was written by none other than Hamilton composer and all-around genius Lin-Manuel Miranda.
It all started when Abrams went to see Hamilton, and Miranda joked backstage that he'd totally write some new Cantina music if they needed it.
But little did he know, THEY DID NEED NEW CANTINA MUSIC. So Abrams emailed him, and Miranda reacted like any true Star Wars fan would.
Seriously, he's a huge Star Wars fan.
And he was so excited, he made it a priority in his already packed schedule.
Hamilton and Star Wars fans alike have taken to the Twitterverse to tweet their favorite mashups. The #Force4Ham is strong with them.
Leia is SUCH an Angelica.
Luke is SUCH a Hamilton.
And Jar Jar is SUCH a Charles Lee.
Blowing up the Death Star = Battle of Yorktown, obvi.
OK, so maybe Han wasn't exactly stayin' mellow in Monticello like Jefferson, but he definitely missed some stuff while he was frozen in carbonite.
