Following the hype of the newest Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens teaser, Twitter has unveiled new themed emojis that can be used on the website. They made their debut at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim.  

Tweets with certain tags will now appear with special themed emojis in honor of the upcoming movie. The three tags are characters that will be featured in the upcoming movie: #C3P0, #Stormtrooper, and #BB8. Twitter worked with Disney and LucasFilms to create the emojis. 

The Star Wars icons are not official emojis—the new bedazzled tags only work on Twitter. Still, they're a fun way to get excited about the movie.
