Somewhere in Russia in the city of Belgorod not too far away, a new hope appears as the iconic Star Wars Theme was played at the new mayor’s oath.
A Youtube video captured the moment. Mayor Yuri Galdun’s name was announced, and everyone in the hall was asked to stand up.
That was when the Star Wars Main Title Theme tune was heard playing in the background as Mayor Yuri Galdun walked in to take the oath.
“We decided to replace the music, in order to make it more modern, but didn’t check where it came from”. said Lyudmila Grekova who is the head of the Belgorod culture ministry.
“There was no malicious intent,” Lyudmila Grekova said, adding that she usually “demands” Russian culture be represented rather than “foreign content.”
Lyudmila Grekova left her post a day after new mayor Yury Galdun took oath.
The Star Wars Main Title Theme music is composed by John Williams. Star Wars is an American epic space opera franchise and created by George Lucas.
The first film began in 1977 titled Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.
