We Will Rock You (2002) is a jukebox musical set in a speculative future where globalisation is complete and everyone watches the same movies, follows the same fashion trends and thinks the same thoughts – all under the gaga eye of the Killer Queen. When Galileo wants to break free, he teams up with the outcast, Scaramouche, and a bunch of Bohemians, all of whom rise up to destroy the system that oppresses them.
