Attention Star Wars fans everywhere: Starting today, Twitter users will have even more ways to express their passion about their favorite pop culture phenomenon with new Twitter-exclusive #StarWarsEmojis.
In anticipation of the theatrical release of “Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens,” we partnered with Disney and Lucasfilm to create custom Twitter emojis, giving Twitter users the ability to share their enthusiasm for the ever-evolving Star Wars universe.
A variety of custom emojis will be released in honor of the upcoming film, including iconic legacy characters and a handful of new characters from #TheForceAwakens. The first three #StarWarsEmojis debuted today during the Star Wars Celebration, the ultimate fan experience, in Anaheim, California:
Tweeting a #StarWarsEmoji is simple. Twitter users who post hashtags representing keywords associated with specific Star Wars characters and legacy themes will see a small emoji-like icon automatically appended to the end of the text of the tag, embedded within the Tweet.
