'Galavant' cast makes epic music video to thank fans trying to save show
#MoreGalavant is the name of the campaign, and it’s goal is to bring back Galavant.
Following ABC’s cancellation of the musical dramedy this month, a fan movement’s online petition to save the show has gained the attention of the cast and special guests, who created a reaction video. Performed to Justin Timberlake’s new hit “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” the inhabitants of Valencia share their dancing and lip-syncing skills to thank the tireless fans for their efforts.
The video opens with King Richard (Timothy Omundson) addressing the loyal Galavant followers. “It warms the cockles of my heart to see everything you’re doing to save our beautiful little show,” says Omundson.
What follows is a dance montage for the ages, with series star Karen David (Isabella) kicking off the love fest and Genevieve Allenbury (Queen of Valencia) prancing. Ben Presley (Jeste), Mallory Jansen (Madalena), Vinnie Jones (Gareth), and Muzz Khan (Barry) are just a few of the other Galavant stars to grace the clip.
If that weren’t enough, other stars also pitch in: The Lord of the Rings star Billy Boyd holds a “You can’t eat this Hobbit!” sign, while Mark Hamill drops in to give thumbs up and show off his “Galavanterrific” sign.
The cherry on top is a closing cameo from “Weird Al” Yankovic. “I can’t imagine any network not picking up this show,” said Yankovic. “Now that it’s a hashtag!”
