'Star Wars' meets the hit Broadway musical 'Hamilton'

"Star Wars" Director J.J. Abrams and "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda worked together on a song for Wednesday, also known as Star Wars Day.

You may not think of "Star Wars" and the hit musical "Hamilton" go together, but that's what the film director J.J. Abrams and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda have done.

In an apparent surprise performance to guests waiting outside the New York theater where Hamilton is being performed, Abrams, Miranda and a band performed a song the duo wrote for "Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens," which was apparently written one of the film's native languages. It translates to, "'No, lover, lover; it wasn't me."

The song is called Jabba Flow, presumably after one of Star Wars' most infamous characters, Jabba the Hutt.
