America is in the grip of Star Wars frenzy. Over the weekend, Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens pulled in a whopping $250 million domestically (and over half a billion dollars globally), shattering the previous record set by Jurassic World. Not everybody has had a chance to see it yet so no spoilers please. Jimmy Fallon already had the cast of the films on his show last week singing the theme, and now he's had his video editing team recut the first six films so that it's like they're singing "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees. I guess America wants as much Star Wars as it can get...even if it means invoking the spirit of disco.
