Video: Star Wars Fan? You’ll Love This Christmas Lights Show!

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 12/20/14

Music teacher creates lights display to pay tribute to his favorite Star Wars songs while raising money for the poor.

This lights display in Newark, NJ, has been featured on ABC and was designed as a tribute to some of the creator's most beloved Star Wars tracks. A music teacher, who built all the props and mixed the sound, designed it to be more than a fun show —it’s used to raise funds for the poor and homeless. This, and the fact that the creator went out of his way to avoid shining the beams on houses and flight paths, makes the neighbors apparently supportive of it. If you look close enough, the instruments are reportedly playing the real notes, too. The songs played in the show start with "Star Wars Main Title and the Arrival at Naboo” from Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and ends with “Victory Celebration, End Title” from Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
