Daisy Ridley & John Boyega's 'Star Wars' Rap Lyrics Give You More Reasons To Adore Them — VIDEO
As if breakout Star Wars stars Daisy Ridley and John Boyega weren't already perfect enough, upon the April 5 DVD and Blu-Ray release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens fans are able to fall in love with these two all over again. Or, more specifically, fall in love with Daisy Ridley and John Boyega's epic friendship. In the latest behind-the-scenes clip released from Episode VII, the Boyega and Ridley wrote a Star Wars rap together while waiting in between takes on set and perform it for the fans. Between Ridley's rapping skills and Boyega's sick beats, it's just as amazing as you might have imagined it to be if you'd known to imagine this kind of thing.
While Ridley seems to be the one who started rapping on set, Boyega clarified that they "collaborated on a song together" and, in return, fans now have the Star Wars rap they never even knew they were missing. Honestly, these lyrics are gold.
"We all up in the desert and we're filming Star Wars. Because of our diet we can't eat no Mars bars. Because of the explosions we'll be crawling on our fours. Because of all the heat we can really make some s'mores. In the desert — Woo! In the desert — Woo! Woo! In the desert — Woo! In the desert — Woo! Woo! Go to light speed."
Just watch it all together in order to get the full effect. And, yes, the rest of the cast totally joins in on the epic fun.
Basically, their friendship is adorable. And it's not even just in this moment that they've proved it to us. Aside from collaborating together on songs, in the DVD and Blu-Ray promotion for The Force Awakens, Ridley also was sure to comment on their relationship in a Facebook Q&A. "John [Boyega] is brilliant. He's like my brother... We get on so well. And we come from similar places because our families are very close and it's the main important thing in our lives... To have him there has just been brilliant." And the love is definitely mutual. In fact, they even have the same nickname for each other, which Boyega stated in an interview long before the release of Episode VII: "Yeah, she's my peanut."
With these two BFFs reunited on-set for Star Wars: Episode VIII, there's only one thing we can hope for: more behind-the-scenes raps. And perhaps this time around they'll add it to the soundtrack.
