Star Wars: The Force Awakens Syncs Perfectly With Dark Side Of The Moon


Star Wars fans on Reddit have been seduced by the Dark Side.

...Well, "The Dark Side of the Moon," Pink Floyd's iconic 1973 album.

Starting with The Wizard of Oz, fans have synced the album up with a number of movies to create a different aural sensation when watching films that seem to match it. The latest candidate? Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

"Each act is roughly the same time as the album (~40 minutes)," says Redditor knni. "The music is always spot on for every scene, but the lyrics are what confirm that this was, indeed, [intentional]."

The post even posits that matching up with "The Dark Side of the Moon" could be the reason for what he perceives as pacing issues and some sequences being cut from the final version of the movie, although that seems farfetched.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan & Abrams, features a cast including actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Andersen, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. They will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters December 18, 2015, kicking off a new trilogy of Saga films as Episodes VIII and IX are already scheduled. The film garnered a record $247 million at the domestic box office and $529 million globally in its opening weekend.
