Timed to the opening day of Star Wars Celebration, being held in Anaheim, California right now, and in anticipation of the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Twitter teamed up with Disney and Lucasfilm to release a set of exclusive Star Wars-themed emojis.

And it’s awesome.

Even more exciting is Twitter’s promise to release additional custom emojis throughout this week/end, which will include iconic legacy characters, plus new characters from The Force Awakens. (CANNOT WAIT.)

These are the first three #StarWarsEmojis that debuted today, and tweeting them is super easy.

    Cool!! I wonder if this was led by Twitter or Disney/Lucasfilm because it would be cool to see Facebook stickers and other emojis coming to other platforms too.

      It’s a partnership between Twitter, Disney and Lucasfilm, Tamara :-)
