Enya did the song "Far and Away" in the movie of the same name that starred Nicole Kidman. Nicole also starred in Moulin Rouge with Ewan McGregor. Ewan played Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars, Eposides I,II&III. Al wrote "The Saga Begins" from Obi Wan's perspective.


(There's also another LOTR/Aerosmith connection, but I used this one since that was just used).
