Tiny Darth Vader plays a mean Star Wars tune on his cello

Ryan, 7, pays tribute to Star Wars by dressing up as Darth Vader and playing "The Imperial March."

Want to see something endearing? Watch 7-year-old Ryan celebrate the upcoming film "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" by playing "The Imperial March" on his cello.

Ryan, from the Suzuki School of Newton in Newton, Massachusetts, appears to channel the dark side of the Force as he plays Darth Vader's famous theme song -- originally composed by John Williams -- while dressed as the Sith Lord himself.

Considering how hard it is to see out of Vader's helmet, it's even more significant to realize that Ryan is playing the musical piece from memory. If that doesn't impress the likes of Yoda, we don't know what will.

Be sure to also catch the classic viral video of an adult Star Wars fan dressed as a kilt-wearing Darth Vader playing the flaming bagpipes while riding a unicycle. No, really.

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" opens in theaters in Europe and Australia on December 17 and in the US on December 18.
