This totally glorious piano cover of the main Star Wars theme has made us love John Williams even more than we thought possible.

If you're looking for some piano magic to help you geek out over John Williams, you've come to the right place: Austrian pianist Ingolf Wunder's cover of the main theme from Star Wars is all kinds of epic.

The hopeful tinkling crescendo, the hands flying across the keyboard, the booming climax... Ingolf's piano cover has everything a John Williams tribute needs.

The Austrian pianist has done some other great work, too...
