Luke the Son of Anakin Parodies Hamilton the Musical


If you are a fan of Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of one of the hottest musicals today — Hamilton — and the man behind the cantina music in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jabba Flow, then we’ve got a treat for you…

Nick Jack Pappas and director Joshua Sarlo decided to pay homage to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton for Star Wars Day, but instead of following the path of Hamilton the two went a different way, they followed the Force, and found a Skywalker, instead. Check it out:

"“How does the bastard, orphaned, son of a Queen and a Sith Lord, dropped in an ignored spot deep in the outer rim by Obi-Wan, a lonely son, a zero, grow up to be a Jedi and a hero?”"

What an amazing line! I would actually pay tickets to go see this on Broadway…or off-broadway, wherever it lands. Regardless, this is an amazing addition to the celebration May 4th (this week) and a respectful homage to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton.

I also love they brought they brought not only the Original Trilogy to Prequels, then they even had The Force Awakens with Rey and Kylo Ren, which was absolutely amazing.
