Star Wars: The Force Awakens emoji video

:clapping emoji:

Posted on

Yes, you’re still crying over that character’s death in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but a new video from Disney will help turn that frown upside down as you patiently await the release of Rogue One on Dec. 16 (and Episode VIII in 2017).

Disney gives the latest big screen iteration of the Star Wars universe an emoji-fied facelit in the video, turning those OMG-worthy moments from The Force Awakens into little bits of LOL-worthy goodness with the help of Rey, BB-8, and Finn. 

The clip begins with a nod to A New Hope‘s title sequence, complete with scrolling iMessage text introducing The Force Awakens‘ plot. Stormtrooper gifs along with tiny renditions of Kylo Ren, General Leia, and Han Solo also show up, while an invading tablet stands in for the Starkiller Base. Chewbacca’s arrival is even signaled in a faux Uber notification that pops up at the bottom of the screen.

Watch the video, set to John Williams’ Oscar-nominated Force Awakens score, above.
