Team Neil Patrick Harris always sets the bar when it comes to Halloween costumes. The family continued its storied legacy Saturday, when they arrived from a galaxy far, far away.

Harris released photos of his family’s Star Wars-themed Halloween portrait on Instagram. “A long time ago in a Halloween far, far away…” he wrote. The How I Met Your Mother star dressed as Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi, while his husband David Burtka took on Han Solo, and their kids Harper and Gideon became Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker.

This is hardly the first time NPH and company have impressed with their costume game. Last year, the family dressed as Batman characters, Alice in Wonderland the year before that, and Wizard of Oz the year before that.
