The Star Wars app is all in for Force Friday. Follow the directions in the video below to get prepped ahead of time (you’ll need some decent wifi for the setup) and get an early glimpse at the feature. If you don’t have it already, the Star Wars app is available on iOS and Android.

The official Star Wars app got it’s first substantial update last week, bringing a full set of the emoji characters that delighted fans during Celebration Anaheim and San Diego Comic-Con. They’re the work of artist Truck Torrence, aka 100% Soft. Torrence spoke about the project at io9, Disney Insider, and more.

They say they’re not sure if there’ll be more, but seeing as we’re lacking Rey, Finn and Poe images (among others,) I’d say it’s a sure thing there’ll be more by the time December rolls in.
