Watch Daisy Ridley And John Boyega Rap About Making Star Wars
The last we saw of Daisy Ridley in a DVD bonus clip from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, she was showing off her insane ability to cry on demand during her dramatic audition tape. Now, there’s a new bonus clip for fans to pore over, only this one’s not so serious. In fact, it’s straight-up silly as hell.
In the clip, shared by Entertainment Tonight, Ridley and her onscreen partner-in-crime John Boyega (Finn) prove they’re just as formidable a duo when rapping as they are battling Stormtroopers.
“I’ve got a good eye for talent and Ridley was just doing a little rap one day and I said ‘You know what? I can make you a big star,’” Boyega deadpans by way of introduction. “So we decided to collaborate on a song together.”
Boyega then begins to beatbox while Ridley spits some lines about their time on set: “We all up in the desert and we filming Star Wars/ Because of our diets we can’t eat no Mars bars/ Because of the explosions JB crawling on all fours/ Because of all the heat we can really make some s’mores.” There’s then a whole “In the desert/ woo woo!” chorus that’s catchier than it has any right to be.
What makes the whole thing even better, though, is the quasi-music video accompanying their rap, which shows the Star Wars cast and crew breaking it down in between takes.
1. Daisy Was Clearly The Dancing Queen on Set
2. Even Director J.J. Abrams Got in on the Fun
3. Oscar Isaac Busted a Move at the Resistance Base
4. Rey and Leia Twirled to Their Hearts’ Content
5. And the Stormtroopers Couldn’t Resist Showing Off Their Moves Either
The only person whose dancing we wish we got to see was Adam Driver’s (Kylo Ren), but we’re guessing he’s too emo for that.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now out on DVD and Blu-ray (more like Blu-Rey, amirite?).
