The new icons debuted on Thursday at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California, just as a new trailer for the seventh film hit the web.


To use the emojis in your tweets, include the corresponding hashtag and the icons will be automatically appended to the end of the text.

The emoji options include(#C3PO, #StormTrooper, #TheForceAwakens or #BB8.

The emojis are the product of a partnership between Twitter, Disney and Lucasfilm.

The new additions have prompted a call for other popular television shows and movies to receive their own emoji keyboard, particularly HBO hit Game of Thrones.
