Watch Star Wars Characters Rock Out to 80s Metal

Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to DANCING.

Have you ever wondered what it would look like if Darth Vader rocked out (with a full backup troupe of Stormtrooper dancers) Metallica's "Enter Sandman"? Or perhaps thought it'd be cool to see Chewbacca strut his stuff to Guns N' Roses "Welcome to the Jungle" and then get played off stage by an Ewok with an electric guitar? You haven't? Well, too bad, because guess what just got uploaded to YouTube?

Every year, the Disney theme parks host a Star Wars weekend which features a massive nightly performance. This year's event, which took place last weekend, showcased the "Hyperspace Hoopla", which was a dance-off between Star Wars characters:

The theme of this year's hilarious dance-off is rock music and the teams are simple. It's the "Good Guys" against the "Bad Guys" as Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and other Star Wars baddies show off their stuff against Chewbacca, Ewoks, Queen Amidala, Ahsoka Tano, and more heroes of the Saga. In addition to a bigger stage, the show now sports plenty of loud pyrotechnics and a bright screen sporting graphics supporting each act.

Inside the Magic actually has video of the entire performance, as well as specific dance numbers. Honestly, the entire thing is sorta surreal to watch, mainly because it's such a bizarre mash-up. That said, witnessing Darth Vader prance around a stage whilst grinding up against Aurra Sing is strangely entertaining in a sacrilegious sort of way, too.
