The music John Williams has composed over the last nearly 40 years for Star Wars has helped shape the franchise. It would probably be harder to find someone on the street who doesn't know the pounding tones of The Imperial March than does, and things like the Force theme or Princess Leia's melodic song evoke instant memories and feelings in fans of all ages.

Combine that with a stunning solo piano arrangement, a talented pianist named Sonya Belousova, and incredible production value that includes custom overlays on the pianos and costume changes, and you have all the makings of a video that lives up to the Star Wars name.

The custom pianos, featuring the Millennium Falcon, R2-D2, and the darkness of Sith Lords like Darth Vader and Darth Maul, plus costume changes to match, really put the piece over the top.

Make sure you check out the other videos from "Player Piano," including Zelda and Mario medleys, Doctor Who, and more amazing geek music arrangements. It's a melodic way to spend an afternoon. And Sonya, please plan to make another with the new Williams score for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Please?
