Arashi will put on a collaboration stage with movie “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” during “66th NHK Kouhaku Utagassen” on 31st December.
New characters in ＢＢ－８,Ｒ２－Ｄ２、Ｃ－３Ｐ as well as Darth Vader and Stormtrooper will also be making their appearances.
Ohno Satoshi says “We’ve been allowed to tag along Star Wars to perform onstage. We’re nervous since it’s a huge name we’re collaborating with but we’ll work hard and show you our courageous sides!”
NHK has also announced a disney stage with Ayase Haruka, Inohara Yoshihiko, Perfume and V6 collaborating with popular characters Mickey Mouse etc.
I never watched Star Wars in my life but this is too cool. Maybe Nino will finally get to use his glow-in-the-dark suits from Arashi ni Shiyagare.
