Chinese pop star and former EXO member Luhan has recently released the official theme song for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” amid backlashes over his appointment as the movie ambassador.

According to CRI News, the music video for the song, entitled “The Inner Force”, was released on 7 January online and has already received over eight million hits on the mainland online portal, QQ.

The music video features various clips from the movie, and features the singer in a Jedi robe, as he wield a light-saber, accompanied by the two astromech droid characters, R2D2 and BB-8.
Older Chinese fans of the movie previously expressed frustration over the selection of Luhan as the movie’s representative in China, despite the distributors’ intention to use him to promote the movie to younger generations.
