Star Wars fans on Twitter have their own exclusive emojis, starting today.

Timed to the opening day of Celebration, the official Star Wars convention, which is being held in Anaheim, California, Twitter said in a blog post that it has teamed with Disney to release a set of new Star Wars-themed emojis.

“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,” the post read, “giving Twitter users the ability to show their enthusiasm for the ever-evolving Star Wars universe.”

By entering custom hashtags — #C3PO, #Stormtrooper, and #BB8 — users will automatically append the new emojis into their tweets.
