Droid Depot Mobile AppIt’s May the 4th, a.k.a. Star Wars Day today — the day Star Wars fans from across the galaxy come together and celebrate.

You don’t have to travel to a galaxy far, far, away this year, as your very own Star Wars stories can now come to life at home with the all-new Droid Depot mobile app, available in the U.S. and Canada.

The app is available for free download on the App Store and Google Play and for anyone lucky enough to have created their own BB-series or R-series astromech droid unit at the Droid Depot at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, they can now bring the droid to life for a galactic experience at home.

If you haven’t built an astromech droid unit yet, you’re also in luck! You can also channel your inner droid builder in an all-new virtual experience, in which you can build a digital droid and create a whole new virtual collection of droids.

Not only that, but pre-built versions of BB-8 and R2-D2 Ninteractive remote control droids from Droid Depot at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge are available for a limited time, while supplies last, at — they’ll arrive at your home, ready to play as soon as you sync them with the app.

You’ll be able to program your droid, customize it by name, see its profile and pilot it on a virtual path  around your home, activating sounds and maneuvers using the app. You’ll also be able to choose favorite galactic jams by DJ R3X straight from Oga’s Cantina and choreograph your droid to dance their way through your home.

From the youngest Padawan to the most knowledgeable Jedi, there are also adventures that await you in strategy mode, where you can play a game of tic-tac-toe with your droid in both easy and difficult modes.

May the 4th be with you!
