Darth Vader, meet Jim Harbaugh.

Michigan alum James Earl Jones has provided his voice to the Wolverines new football video, played at Michigan Stadium for the first time before last Saturday's home opener.

The video production was a request of Harbaugh, according to Free Press writer Mark Snyder.

Judging by the video, this is the last thing that played before the Wolverines took the field on Saturday.

Snyder reports Harbaugh was very happy with the finished product, gathering the following reaction:

"I hope you liked it. I'm really impressed with it. With James Earl Jones narrating and 200 years of Michigan tradition to work with. I thought people really liked it," Harbaugh said on his radio show.

The video was posted on YouTube for a short time, but has since been removed.
